The Museum Tre Kronor in the Old Town of Stockholm

The Museum Tre Kronor means The Museum Three Crowns and Three Crowns was the name of the old Royal Castle before the present one. It was destroyed in a great fire in 1697 but the northern part did survive the fire to a great extent and made up the foundation for the present Royal Castle. At the museum you can see the old Royal Castle from 13:th century up to 1697, it looked very much like a Cinderella castle with towers, walls, moat, drawbridge etc.
