Haga Palace for Victoria and Daniel

Now that wedding bells are to ring for the Swedish heir to the throne, the government has offered her a place of her own.

Haga Palace is in the suburb of Solna, to the North-West of Stockholm. It is to be the new residency of Crown Princess and her husband to be, Daniel Westling. Formerly a royal palace it was built in the late 18th century by renown architect Tessin and then later handed over to the government by king Gustav Adolf IV in 1966.

The surrounding Haga Park is a popular area for Stockholmers to stretch their legs - there is still a question mark over whether this will have to end due to heightened security when the royal couple moves in.
