The Royal National City Park

is the capital’s green oasis. Only a stone’s throw from the city centre of Stockholm you can experience a unique historic landscape interwoven with parkland, beautiful buildings, woods and forests, open land and beaches. You can everything here, from strolling in ancient forests and swimming off rocks to visiting stately homes and museums. The park stretches from Sörentorp and Ulriksdal in the north to Djurgården and the Fjäderholm islands in the south. It spans three municipalities: Solna, Stockholm and Lidingö. Little wonder that this is the most well-visited recreational area in the Stockholm region today. Read More
