The Stockholm Palace is the official residence of the Swedish monarch and is next to the current day Swedish parliament. It is mainly used by the Swedish monarch while performing duties as head of state. Construction of the palace started in 1697 and was completed in 1760; however, the site itself has long been used, with its origins in the 13th century as a fortress to defend Lake Mälaren before being gradually transformed into a palace. That palace was destroyed in a fire in 1697, prompting the construction of the present day structure. With 1430 rooms, it is one of the largest palaces in the world still serving its original purpose.
