Royal National City Park

The Royal National City Park

King Carl XVI Gustaf officially opened Sweden's first National City Park in 1996 , comprising North and South of Djurgården, Ulriksdal Park, Haga Park and Brunnsviken. The Royal National City Park is Sweden's most-visited recreation area.

This area is unique by virtue of its natural, cultural and recreational value and its direct proximity to a big city. The creation of the National City Park serves to strengthen the prospects of perpetuating the royal historic heritage spanning from Djurgården hunting park to the Gustavian parklands of Haga.

The Royal National City Park also includes the Fjäderholm Islands, and is mainly administered by the Royal Djurgården Administration.
