Stockholm Palace or The Royal Palace is the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish monarch . Stockholm Palace is located on Stadsholmen, in Gamla stan in the capital, Stockholm. It neighbours the Riksdag building.The offices of the King, the other members of the Swedish Royal Family, and the offices of the Royal Court of Sweden are located here. The palace is used for representative purposes by the King whilst performing his duties as the head of state.This royal residence has been in the same location by Norrström in the northern part of the Gamla stan in Stockholm since the middle of the 13th century when the Tre Kronor Castle was built. In modern times the name relates to the building called Kungliga Slottet. The palace was designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger and erected on the same place as the medieval Tre Kronor Castle which was destroyed in a fire on 7May 1697. Due to the costly Great Northern War which started in 1700, construction of the palace was halted in 1709, and not recommenced until 1727— six years after the war. When Tessin the Younger died in 1728, the palace was completed by Carl Hårleman who also designed a large part of its Rococo interior. The palace was not ready to use until 1754, when King Adolf Frederick and Queen Louisa Ulrika moved in, but some interior work proceeded until the 1770s. No major conversions have been done in the palace since its completion, only some adjustments, new interiors, modernization and redecorating for different regents and their families, coloration of the facades and addition of the palace museums.
The Katarina Elevator or Katarina Lift is a passenger elevator in Stockholm that connects Slussen to the heights of Södermalm. The lift was a shortcut between Katarinavägen, Slussen and Mosebacke torg. The original lift was constructed in 1881, but the current structure dates from the rebuilding of the Slussen transport interchange in 1936. The lift has been closed since 2010 due to lack of security in the construction. There are plans to renovate the elevator's structure so that it can resume operation in 2019.The old liftIn 1881 the engineer Knut Lindmark, was permitted to build a lift and a bridge between Stadsgården and Mosebacke Torg (Mosebacke square), to make it easier for people to move between the different heights of Södermalm. The lift was opened March the 19th 1883. During the first month approximately 1,500 passengers rode the lift daily. The price was 5 öre for going up and 3 öre for going down on the lift at that time.The lift and bridge was constructed by the Belgian firm Lecoq & Comp, using a mechanism sourced from the American firm Weeks & Halsey. The original steam engine was replaced in 1915 with an electric engine.The elevator is shown in a scene from the movie The Prize starring Paul Newman.

Välkommen till ett av Europas största och mest levande slott!
Kungliga slottet i centrala Stockholm är H.M. Konungens officiella residens och väsentliga delar av monarkins representation äger rum här. Slottet är även en daglig arbetsplats för Kungaparet och för de ämbeten som ingår i Kungl. Hovstaterna.
Med denna kombination av kunglig representationsbostad, arbetsplats och kulturhistorisk monument öppet för besökare året om är Kungliga slottet unikt bland Europas kungliga residens.
Slottet är byggt i barockstil av arkitekt Nicodemus Tessin den yngre och till formen gestaltat som ett romerskt palats. Slottet har mer än 600 rum fördelade på sju våningar med paradrummen utåt staden och de mindre bostadsrummen mot den inre borggården.
Slottet rymmer många sevärdheter. Förutom Representationsvåningarna finns tre museer med kunglig historia – Skattkammaren med riksregalierna, Museum Tre Kronor som skildrar slottets medeltida historia och Gustav III:s antikmuseum med skulpturer från antiken.
Stockholm City Hall is the building of the Municipal Council for the City of Stockholm in Sweden. It stands on the eastern tip of Kungsholmen island, next to Riddarfjärden's northern shore and facing the islands of Riddarholmen and Södermalm. It houses offices and conference rooms as well as ceremonial halls, and the luxury restaurant Stadshuskällaren. It is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet and is one of Stockholm's major tourist attractions.Site and constructionIn 1907 the city council decided to build a new city hall at the former site of Eldkvarn. An architectural contest was held which in the first stage resulted in the selection of drafts by Ragnar Östberg, Carl Westman, Ivar Tengbom jointly with Ernst Torulf, and Carl Bergsten. After a further competition between Westman and Östberg the latter was assigned to the construction of the City Hall, while the former was asked to construct Stockholm Court House. Östberg modified his original draft using elements of Westman's project, including the tower. During the construction period, Östberg constantly reworked his plans, resulting in the addition of the lantern on top of the tower, and the abandonment of the blue glazed tiles for the Blue Hall.
The Vasa Museum is a maritime museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Located on the island of Djurgården, the museum displays the only almost fully intact 17th century ship that has ever been salvaged, the 64-gun warship Vasa that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. The Vasa Museum opened in 1990 and, according to the official web site, is the most visited museum in Scandinavia. Together with other museums, such as the Stockholm Maritime Museum, the museum belongs to the Swedish National Maritime Museums .HistoryFrom the end of 1961 to 1988, Vasa was housed in a temporary structure called Wasavarvet where she was treated with polyethylene glycol. Visitors could only view the ship from two levels and the maximum distance was only 5 m . In 1981, the Swedish government decided that a permanent Vasa museum was to be constructed and an competition for the design of the museum building was organized. A total of 384 architects sent in models of their ideas and the final winners were Marianne Dahlbäck and Göran Månsson with Ask . The construction of the new building began on and around the dry dock of the old naval yard with an inauguration ceremony hosted by Prince Bertil on 2 November 1987. Vasa was towed into the flooded dry dock under the new building in December 1988, and during the summer of 1989, when visitors were allowed onto the construction site, 228,000 people visited the half-finished museum. The museum was officially opened on 15 June 1990. So far, Vasa has been seen by over 25 million people. In 2008, the museum had a total of 1,143,404 visitors.
Här lär du känna det medeltida Stockholm och medeltidsmänniskans vardag och försörjning, fest, lycka och sorg. Museet är uppbyggt kring fornlämningar som hittades av en slump.
I slutet av 1970-talet behövde det gamla Riksdagshuset kompletteras med ett garage. Inför bygget gjordes arkeologiska undersökningar på Helgeandsholmen 1978-80. De blev mycket omfattande och fantastiska fynd gjordes. Tre av de största var delar av den medeltida stadsmuren, en kyrkogård som tillhört det medeltida Helgeandshuset och en "hemlig” gång till Slottet. Dessa blev fasta fornlämningar kring vilka Medeltidsmuseet byggdes upp.
Hovstallet har en månghundraårig historia alltsedan Gustav Vasa 1535 lät bygga ett stall för de kungliga hästarna. Då som nu var huvuduppgiften att tillgodose Konungens behov av transporter till vardags och till fest. Ädla hästar och praktfullt rustade ekipage har alltid spritt glans över konungen och kungamakten.
Katarina kyrka is one of the major churches in central Stockholm, Sweden. The original building was constructed 1656 - 1695. It has been rebuilt twice after being destroyed by fires, the second time during the 1990s. The Katarina-Sofia borough is named after the parish and the neighbouring parish of Sofia.Construction of the church started during the reign of Charles X of Sweden, and the church is named after Princess Catherine, mother of the king, wife of John Casimir, Palsgrave of Pfalz-Zweibrücken and half-sister of Gustavus Adolphus. The original architect was Jean de la Vallée. The construction was severely delayed due to shortage of funds.In 1723 the church, together with half of the buildings in the parish, was completely destroyed in a major fire. Rebuilding started almost immediately, under supervision of Göran Josua Adelcrantz, the city architect, who designed a larger, octagonal tower.May 17, 1990, the church burned down again. Almost nothing but the external walls remained. Architect Ove Hidemark was responsible for rebuilding the church, which was reopened in 1995. The new organ was built by J. L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw in the Netherlands.
