Rosendals Palace on Djurgården, east of Skansen, was built between 1823-1827. It was used as a summer retreat by King Karl XIV Johan, and later by King Oskar as an oasis away from his official duties. The palace was never used as a permanent home and was turned into a museum after the death of King Oskar II. Architect Fredrik Blom, one of the most important architects of the period, constructed the palace, whose interior, exterior and furniture designs are a unique example of the European Empire style. The Rosendals Palace is open from Tuesday to Sunday from June to August. Timings vary as per guided tours.
