Where the Royals Live. A fine example of 18th-century European architecture inspired by the Palace of Versailles, Drottningholm Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While most of the grounds are open to tourists, the Palace’s southern wing serves as the permanent home residence of Sweden’s King and Queen. Located in a Stockholm suburb on an island on Lake Malar, it’s accessible by both road and waterway — on this day it was perfect weather for a ferry ride from Stockholm.
