Drottningholm Palace may not be the most famous royal residence in the world, but it certainly is storied. Not only is the palace, which sits in a suburb of Stockholm and serves as a private residence for the Swedish royal family, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it also plays host to one of the most famed opera festivals in the world. But it’s not architecture or history that’s put the castle in the spotlight: The Local reports that Sweden’s Queen Silvia insists the castle and its grounds are haunted.
“There’s a lot of history here. There are also little friends…the ghosts,” the queen said in a documentary that aired on Thursday. “They’re all very friendly, but you sometimes feel like you aren’t alone.”
