Slottskyrkan (Royal Chapel) - STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

Slottskyrkan (The Royal Chapel) is a church inside Stockholm Palace in Stockholm. It was opened in 1754 and it is part of the national Church of Sweden, although the management is in the hands of the Office of the Marshal of the Realm, as part of the Royal Estate.

The Royal Chapel features examples of architecture, décor and artworks by some of the leading masters of their times. Carl Hårleman completed the chapel's interior in the middle of the 1700s, to a large part following Tessin the Younger´s drawings. Sculptures, statues and ceiling paintings have been carried out by the foremost craftsmen of the period.

It is open for public daily from 10 a.m. to 17 p.m. and the Church service is every Sunday at 11 a.m.
