Sepia Scenes # 124
This is Ulriksdals Palace in Stockholm. I was visiting my daughter, who lives near the palace, last week.
Ulriksdal Palace is situated on the banks of Edviken Lake in the National City Park in Stockholm. The palace was built in the 1600s and visitors to the palace witness many different epochs.Several Swedish regents have left their mark on Ulriksdal. Queen Kristina built a pleasure garden in front of the palace and Hedvig Elenora built an Orangery in the park.
Queen Kristina enjoyed the palace so much that she let her coronation procession proceed from Ulriksdal.
The palace was built for Constable of the Realm Jacob De La Gardie by architect Hans Jacob Kristler. The palace was called Jacobsdal until the time of Queen Hedvig Eleonora.
Both the palace and the Orangery are open to the public during the summer months. The palace can be viewed by guided tour. Visitors to the Orangery can wander freely amongst the exotic plants and sculptures of Johan T. Sergel and Carl Milles, amongst others.
