The Swedish "Riksdag" is located in a building complex that was originally intended for the Parliament and the State bank. The State bank was situated in the rear, semi-circular structure, where today's assembly rooms for the political fractions are. The newly erected plenary hall is located on the top floor, offering panoramic views over the city. Just as in Norway, the Swedish parliament’s seating plan is arranged according to regions, not political parties.
