Arvfustens Palace, Stockholm

Arvfustens Palace

In 1783, Princess Sofia Albertina, sister of King Gustaf III, acquired the land where another residence for her was to be built. After Princess Sofia Albertina’s death in 1829, many royals lived there during the course of time - until 1902, when the State purchased it to use if for the foreign administration.

Today, Arvfustens Palace is the seat of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. I've attended some social occasions there, and must say that it's a marvelous palace/residence! It has fantastic interiours that are not too much, but very well balanced - and even if I wouldn't mind if it still was a royal residence - it think it suits wonderfully well as the base for the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. and the best room in it is the office of the Minister for Foreign Affairs (who heads the ministry).

Picture 1, 2 & 3 = Arvfurstens Palace
Picture 4 = The Minister for Foreign Affairs in her office (you can see a bit of it in this pic)

How does this Palace lie in relation to Gamla Stan and proximity to Riddarhuset or Kungliga Slottet?

This is a bit to much to explain only by words, cause if you don't know all the places and streets - it gets a bit too much to understand. So here is a map - the black, white and red spot is where Arvfurstens Palace is located. As you can see, the Royal Palace of Stockholms is quite close.

I sort of figured it was close by.

Thanks for the map, GD.

Here are three pictures of the former royal residence Arvfurstens Palace (you can read about it in one of my earlier posts), today the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, taken during the National Day of Mourning this past weekend on New Year's Day, 1 January. I'm sorry for the guys in the pics, but I think that in these pics you can see the residence in relation to the Royal Palace of Stockholm...

Prince Carl, Duke of Vastergotland, and his wife, Princess Ingeborg divided their time between Arvfustens Palace and summers in Fridhem.
