Changing of the Guard at the Royal Palace
Changing the Guard takes place every day of the year. However the march through the city of Stockholm with military band is usually only during the summer months from May to August.
|The drummer has two large drums, a large horse and style!|
|Everything was synchronized, even the dismount. Every head is turned toward the soldier on the right who gives the signal|
|The people next to us, from Holland I think, loved this hopping step. They giggled each time it happened!|
|This guard is a beautiful, young woman|
