The Jubilee Year 2023

Next year is a double jubilee, marking 500 years since Gustav Vasa was elected king in 1523 – ushering in a new era that shaped modern Sweden – and it is also King Carl XVI Gustaf’s 50th jubilee. There will certainly be celebrations throughout the year! We will highlight 500 years of culture in the service of the realm with a new book and the exhibition Vasa to Bernadotte at the Royal Palace. Gustav Vasa’s Gripsholm Castle will focus on the historic king, and a photographic exhibition about King Carl Gustaf’s 50 years as Sweden’s head of state will be displayed on Slottsbacken.
