Royal Djurgården / National City Park

Ulriksdal Park

The Royal National City Park stretches as far as Ulriksdal, which is home to a royal palace with an extensive palace park.

The royal palace of Ulriksdal was built in the 17th century, and an extensive park was created for the palace. Here, one of Sweden's most attractive Baroque gardens was laid out.

When the park ideal of the English romantic style became popular in the late 18th century, 2,000 trees were planted to create a more relaxed park in contrast to the strict, symmetrical Baroque style.

There are several sculptures to see in the park, including Per Lundgren's The Blackamoors Pulling a Net group, which stand on either side of the footbridge across the Igelbäcken stream which flows through the palace park.

The park is home to several buildings dating from the 17th century through to 1860: a royal palace, an orangery, a chapel and an 18th century theatre.
