Another of Stockholm's lovely green pleasure gardens, Haga Park also happens to have a royal pedigree. Begun by Gustav III, it is Sweden's purest version of an 'English park', and the surrounding area contains three royal palaces. Crowning the hilltop is the peculiar Koppartälten , built in 1787 as barracks for Gustav III’s personal guard. It now contains a cafe and a restaurant, as well as Haga Parkmuseum .
