Stockholm’s Royal Palace starts falling apart

During the last few years renovation work has been carried out in some of the most important rooms of the Royal Palace in Stockholm and since earlier this year parts of the façades of the Royal Palace have been covered in rather ugly black safety nets. Svenska Dagbladet today has a long article on the reason for this, namely that the Gotland sandstone of the façades is crumbling and has started falling down. Replacing the sandstone will be a difficult process which is expected to last at least twenty years, possibly longer. The article also says that the works inside the Palace will not be completed in time for Crown Princess Victoria’s and Daniel Westling’s wedding in June.
