Sweden: Drottningholm Palace

On Friday I got a postcard from Sweden, two maxicards from Thailand which were fixed together by tape and a postcard from Germany.

The postcard from Sweden shows the Drottningholm Palace. The Drottningholm Palace is the private residence of the Swedish royal family, but also a popular tourist attraction and museum. It was built in the 18th century and is the finest example of a North European royal residence inspired by the Palace of Versailles. The palace is especially known for its theatre and the Chinese Pavilion. In 1991 the Royal Domain of Drottningholm became Sweden's first UNESCO World Heritage Site.
