Haga Royal Palace and National Parc – Stockholm
Situated in Stockholm and part of the Royal National City Park, Haga Park is one of Sweden’s most-visited recreation area.
Haga Park is perhaps Sweden’s foremost example of an English landscape park and also known as the “Gustavian Park” as it was initiated by Gustav III. The parc is characterized by the Copper Tent, built in 1787 to house stables and lodgment for the guards. The southern façade was built to give the illusion of a Sultan’s tent on the edge of a forest. Today the Copper Tent houses a restaurant, café and a park museum. In this parc you can also find the Haga Palace, built in 1802 by the architect Carl Christoffer Gjörwell, commissioned by Gustav IV Adolf – today permanent residence of the Crown Princess of Sweden, H.M. Victoira and her family.
The Gustav III´s Pavilion at Haga Park is one of the highlights of Swedish art history and is one of the finest examples of the European Neo-Classicism of the late 1700s in Northern Europe. It was built by architect Olof Tempelman – with detailed instructions from the highly-engaged King Gustav III.
Visit also the Fjärillsmuseet – the Butterfly museum.
