Suburbs of Stockholm

Suburbs of Stockholm

The Swedish capital is one of the largest cities in the north of Europe. The Stockholm metropolitan area includes 26 municipalities, and almost two million inhabitants consider it their home. One of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world, Stockholm is loved by tourists. At least seven million people come here annually, including many Russian travelers. The suburbs of Stockholm are of no less interest, because in them you can find decent examples of Scandinavian architecture and just walk through pretty parks that have preserved their natural beauty, despite the presence of one of the largest European capitals nearby..

Palaces and parks

The main attractions of Solna are two beautiful palaces and several parks. This suburb of Stockholm is located in the northeast of the capital of Sweden.
Ulriksdal stands out among the dozen royal palaces in the country. It was built in the middle of the 17th century for Marshal Jacob de la Gardie, and in the middle of the 20th century this magnificent mansion became the country residence of King Gustav VI Adolf.
The royal chambers are surrounded by a park with greenhouses, sculptures and a palace chapel. On the territory of the green zone there is the oldest theater in the country, built in 1750 in the Rococo style. It operates to this day and regularly hosts opera and ballet performances and drama performances on its stage. In the stable of the palace, the carriage for the queen's festive trips is carefully kept.
The Stockholm Military Academy is located in the Karlberg Palace, built at the end of the 18th century. This residence was given for the needs of the educational institution and today the Swedish military elite is trained here. The palace, however, is open to visitors and fans of the strict architectural style can explore both the interior and the adjacent park area..

The lists include

The Drottningholm Palace has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since the 90s of the last century. Residence of Swedish monarchs, it is located on an island in the middle of Lake Mälaren in the western suburbs of Stockholm.
The history of the palace dates back to the 16th century castle built on the island of Louvain by King Johan for his wife Katherine Jagiellonka. The castle, which burned down a hundred years later, was replaced by an elegant palace, built in the fashion of that time in imitation of Versailles..
The next mistress renewed the Rococo interiors and opened a court theater in the palace. The country residence of the Swedish monarchs is used by them today for receiving guests and rest.
The surviving court theater is interesting for its ancient devices that allow you to move the stage, produce acoustic and other effects. Authentic performances of operas and ballets take place on the historical stage, and once a year an international music festival is held.
