Royal attractions in Sweden

Discover some of the many amazing royal attractions in Sweden.

The Swedish royal family is one of the oldest royal families in the world. The current monarch in Sweden is his royal highness King Carl XVI Gustaf.


The Monarchy has a long history but is also modern

Sweden is one of the most modern, stable and egalitarian democracies in the world with a monarchy, which has strong roots and public support.

In 1980, Sweden became the first monarchy to change its succession rites, so that the first-born child of the monarch is heir to the throne, regardless of gender. Ambitious and with charm to spare, Crown Princess Victoria seems more than ready for the task.
