Drottningholm Palace, located on the island of Lovön near Stockholm, Sweden, is the primary residence of the Swedish royal family. The palace was originally built in the late 16th century as a summer residence for King Johan III and has since undergone several renovations and expansions.

One of the most notable features of the palace is its beautiful baroque garden, which features a series of parterres, fountains, and a large orangery. The palace also contains several museums, including the Chinese Pavilion, which houses a collection of Chinese porcelain, and the Palace Museum, which showcases the history of the palace and its residents.

In addition to its architectural and historical significance, Drottningholm Palace is also notable for its well-preserved example of an 18th-century palace. The palace was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1991 and is considered to be one of the finest examples of baroque architecture in Europe. Today, the palace continues to serve as the official residence of the Swedish royal family, and it is open to the public for tours and visits.
