Stockholm, Gamle Stan and a Castle. Or is it a Palace?

24 Oct. 10


Next day we woke up early and drove to the downtown area of Gamle Stan (Old Town) to view the sights,… … and the Finnish church and… … …


In the afternoon we visited the Royal Palace/castle.


We viewed the museum within the depths of the castle. The museum houses the history of the royal family and includes costumes, stuffed horses and dogs, a large number of decorative mice all wearing crowns, and the old carriages used by the Royal Family throughout time. These carriages are not to be missed as they are gorgeous to look at, and the craftsmanship is exquisite, with very fine details out of wood.


Don’t forget to look for the mice dressed up as servants.
