Info about the Royal Treasury in the Old Town
The Royal Treasury is located in the basement of the Royal Castle and can be accessed by the south Gate (see the map below). We recommend that you visit the Royal Treasury Web Site for up-to-date information about open hours etc. before a visit. It's available by the Home Page button above.
The Royal Treasury was founded in 1696 with the purpose to display the Swedish regalia for the public. Before that these valuable items had been looked away and only use at special occasions by the Royal family.
The Swedish regalia are the property of the nation Sweden and not the Royal family, but they are at the Royal family disposal to be use at state business.
