National day celebration

The tradition of celebrating this date began 1916 at the Stockholm Olympic Stadium, in honour of the election of King Gustav Vasa in 1523, as this was considered the foundation of modern Sweden. Here the King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Siliva are leaving the royal palace in stockholm to celebrate at the Skansen outdoor museum.
