I was in Sweden in summer, last summer. I find ths country very beautiful, even if I didn't stay a lot. The mosts beautiful places I've seen are certainly the Royal Castle in Gamla Stan and of course the famous Uppsala's Church... :P

Why do you find the Royal castle the most beautiful place? I really can't understand that, just compare it with some French châteaux...

Why do people always compare Swedish castles with French castles ??? :shock:

I agree, the Royal Palace may not be the most beautiful palace in Sweden, but I think you have to understand that Swedish architecture traditions CAN NOT BE the same as French architecture traditions.

It keeps on surprising me to see some french people searching for french castles abroad. :shock:
Sure you'll always be disappointed if you expect to find Versailles or Chambord in Sweden or wherever else...

French architecture had been copied by many european countries for a long.
French people are so proud of their castle and palace that they are quite satisfied to see same architecture in other countries :roll:

I saw the royal palace in Stockholm, and it was really unpleasant : traditional italian baroque style... :? It looked like a bunker :P

Despite, there were a lot of splendid churchs (Kirkan) in every towns.

French architecture has also copied architecture from others countries, above all Italian.

Every country develop an architecture beeing inspired by others styles and make it to an own style.

I don't understand why Sweden should have copied French architecture more than an other. When you look after, Sweden has been more in contact with Nothern Europe and Germany. There is of course a French inspiration also, but it came quite late actually.

If you have a walk in different Swedish cities you notice easily that the German (Hansa) influence is very important indeed. Look at Visby or Gamla Stan.

Bien que ne faisant pas partie de la hanse, il y avait pas mal d'allemand dès le 14ème siècle. Tyska Kyrkan par exemple.

Stockholm was part of the Hanseatic League even if the main trading routes were in the South of the Baltic.

Later on the German influence became so important that half of the members in the city council had to be German!

Well, actually I'm a Swede. I'm not looking for a Versailles in Sweden but I'm not very impressed by the Kungliga Slottet and I think we have much more beautiful buildings in this country. Drottningholm for instance.

I've been to Sweden in March (2006) but nevertheless everything was still snow-covered (and it was still cold too). I visited Stockholm, Uppsala, Malmö and Österbybruck during my 2 weeks stay.
What i found the most beautiful were not particulary the buildings but rather the landscapes. Those great forests, those fields with big rocks scattered all around, ...
Yet there were some buildings that caught my attention a bit more, like the cathedral in Uppsala, the Gustavianum (Uppsala Universitet), the royal palace in Stockholm, the manor in Österbybruck ... and also the Vasa boat even if it's not a building.
Anyway everything in Sweden has created such a great impression in me that the only thing I wanna do now is "återkoma till Sverige". And settle there after my studies ... :D

Personnally what I really find amazing in Sweden is that you don't need to go visit a castle to see something beautiful. For sure Drottningholm or Gripsholm are wonderful and it was great to visit them (especially with the great guide I had that day :wink: !), but just watching the richly-coloured architecture you can find (for instance) in Stockholm made me enjoy the trip.
