A Sweden Tour cannot be complete without a visit to this quieter yet elegant side. The colorful 18th-century buildings, narrow lanes, and the central square are always prepared to amaze the visitors.

Drottningholms Slottsteater, adjacent to the palace can tell the story of 18th-century drama culture.
