Royal Domain of Drottningholm, Sweden

Stockholm, Sweden
An island palace and gardens inspired by Versailles, this royal residence has changed according to the tastes of monarchs over the centuries. The renovations and shifting aesthetics have guided the magnificent grounds since King Johan III built the first castle here in the 16th century. The transformation showcases European architecture at its zenith.
