“Part of the Royal National City Park, the lush Haga Park (or just Haga) is situated approx 30-35 mins walk away from my Airbnb. Founded by the monarch Gustav III in 1780-1797, Haga is Sweden's foremost example of an English landscape park, and one of Sweeden’s most popular recreational areas. It's also the site of many historical landmarks. The Chinese Pavilion, The Turkish Kiosk, and The Royal Burial Ground are all found in the park. Within the park is also Haga Palace, the residence of Crown Princess Victoria and her family.”
