Probably the smallest royal palaces here. Gustav´s III pavillion. Built 1787.



Right next to the pavillion there was meant to be a castle/palace called stora Haga castle. Unfortunately after the murder of king Gustav III, it was never finnished. This ruin is all that remains.

Source: sfv.se

This is how it was supposed to look like. The pavillion can be seen to the right and Stora haga castle to the left.

The following havent really been used as castles/palaces but have the age and looks.


Amiralitetshuset. Located in central Stockholm. Built 1647-1650.






Börshuset. Built 1767-1778.




Danvikshem. Built 1912 so its fairly new. Funnily it once was mistaken as the royal palace by a foreign warship on an official visit. They gave a big salut with its cannon outside. Quite a mistake.




Nordic museum. Built 1887-1907.
