Another card from Arnold’s trip. ❤ It pictures the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace.

The Royal Guard has guarded the Royal Palace and the Royal Family since it was founded by King Gustav Vasa in 1523. During a large part of this time it has also been a police force in Stockholm. Today the Changing of Guard at Yttre Borggården (Outer Courtyard) is a major tourist attraction with more than 1 million visitors every year. The main Changing of Guard takes place at noon every day.
