Located between the Royal Palace and the Riddarholmen Church is the Riddarhuset Swedish for the House of Knights. This institution serves to maintain records on the Swedish nobility.

I didn't go inside due to limited time but took a few photos about the property and found it something work... 更多
A must see, you can't miss it on the edge of Gamla Stan towards the Riddarholm island. Beautiful architecture, stately, well maintained and restored. Worth at least a walk by.
