The Royal National City Park

The Royal National City Park

"I was glad that you could catch a glimpse of life on Djurgården, that you could see how the majesty of the oak trees depends on people playing and moving about beneath them."

In these words Prince Eugen, writing from his home at Waldemarsudde to the poet Verner von Heidenstam, alluded to the symbiosis of man and nature that is Djurgården. For centuries Djurgården has been a place to which we come for amusement and to delight in nature.

In 1995, the area comprising Ulriksdal, Haga, Brunnsviken and Djurgården became the world's first National City Park. This area is unique by virtue of its natural, cultural and recreational value and its direct proximity to a big city. The Royal National City Park is Sweden's most-visited recreation area.

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.
