With Stockholm offering a veritable smorgasbord of world-class historical and modern architecture, this great Northern European city is sure to appeal to architectural aficionados and novices alike. Your tour begins with a visit to the bustling Sergerls Torg - a central, public square in Stockholm and is named after 18th-century sculptor Johan Tobias Sergel, whose workshop was once located north of the square.
You will then proceed to the Royal Swedish Opera, much loved by Swedes everywhere; it is the country’s premier stage for all things opera and ballet. The Opera House as you see it today was built in the nineteenth century and boasts a beautiful neoclassical facade, adorned with statues, arches, and Corinthian and Tuscan columns. You will then venture on to the Stockholm Concert Hall, designed by Ivar Tengbom and completed in 1926. The hall is home to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and frequently hosts the very best of Swedish and international orchestral music.
After your foray into the musical world of Stockholm, you will take a short and scenic bus ride to the magnificent Drottningholm Palace, the idyllic home to the Swedish Royals situated on the island of Lovön and dating back to the 1600s. Here you’ll be able to view the many grand rooms open to the public and discover the stunning 18th-century architectural gem that is the Chinese Pavilion, located in the beautiful palace grounds. The fairytale Drottningholm Palace is a beautiful treasure of Stockholm, featuring some of Europe's best examples of Rococo design, complete with a plethora of Chinoiserie and Swedish fine art.
