Royal Djurgården is Stockholm's most popular recreation area. The area is unique in terms of its natural, cultural and recreational significance, as well as in its own right, and with regard to its proximity to the city.
Visitors to Djurgården can enjoy beautiful nature and a wealth of culture, museums and historic buildings. The Royal Djurgården Administration also makes the land available for various events.
