This Neoclassical building painted a distinctive shade of pale blue is the city’s premier venue for classical music and home to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s also where the Nobel Prizes are handed out each year (with the exception of the Peace Prize, which is awarded in Oslo). The calendar is packed and varied, with many international names coming to Stockholm to perform here.
