Sweden’s Drottningholm Palace
Drottningholm Palace is the private home of the Swedish royal family. It was originally built in the 1500s. This palace is known for its areas that have been kept almost the same as they were years ago. Some parts of the palace are open to the public, including the garden and the palace theater. The palace also features a Chinese Pavilion which was built in the traditional Chinese style in the 1700s.
The palace has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage site, namely for its amazing architecture and baroque gardens. While the palace is considered the official residence of the Swedish royal family, some of them only use it as a summer home.
