The story about the tour
Hear ye’, hear ye’! Welcome to the 3 P’s of Stockholm: Palaces, priests and pomp! Spend the day strolling through the city like true royalty at the grand Royal Palace, with the priests of the Stockholm Cathedral and the pomp of the Vasa warship at the Vasa Museum. This Royal Stockholm Private Walking Tour tour includes the magnificent island city districts of the Old Town and Djurgården as well as a scenic ferry ride through the eastern part of the city centre.
Step into the King’s official residence and former home – The Royal Palace of Stockholm. The State Apartments, where royals (we’ll introduce you to them too!) have welcomed DJs, Nobel Laureates and foreign dignitaries throughout the centuries. In the neighbouring Guest Apartments, visiting world’s leaders rest their heads during state visits to the city. After we make our royal exit, we continue over the cobblestoned courtyard to the Stockholm Cathedral, noted not only as the location where Sweden’s Parliament opens annually but also a place of opportunity. This is where a gym owner became a prince after all!
Continuing on our regal theme, we board our royal vessel (maybe not royal by name, but it takes us to a royal destination) to the lush island of Djurgården. Part of the Royal National City Park, there are many museums located on the island, including the home of the grandest warship in the Swedish Royal Navy of the 1600s – the Vasa Museum. Two gun decks, 64 canons, over 400 workers employed… the Vasa took two years to build but only sailed for 20 minutes. You can imagine the King’s delight…!
By the end of our Royal Stockholm Private Walking Tour, check off the three royal p’s above and pride yourself for having given tribute to all things royalty in Stockholm. Can you hear the 21 gun salute in the distance?!
