The Royal Guards has been stationed at the Royal Palace since 1523 and is a popular tourist attraction.

Today, military units from all over Sweden take turns to stand guard.

During the summer months the parade marches or rides with the military band through the city streets to the outer courtyard of the Palace.

The Royal Guard is integral part of the security surrounding the Royal Family and the military forces of Stockholm.
