Description: The Royal Domain of Drottningholm rests in a suburb of Stockholm upon an island in Lake Mälar. In its time inspired by the Palace of Versailles, it is the finest instance of an 18th-century northern European royal residence. It boasts a castle, Chinese pavilion and gardens and a perfectly preserved theatre, that was built in 1766. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The Drottningholm Palace is the private residence of the Swedish royal family. It is located in Drottningholm. It is built on the island Lovön (in Ekerö Municipality of Stockholm County), and is one of Sweden's Royal Palaces. It was originally built in the late 16th century. Apart from being the private residency of the Swedish royal family, the castle is a popular tourist attraction. --Wikipedia.
