Tullgarn Palace is a former summer residence located on the Häggnäsviken Bay in Trosa, Sörmland.
The Palace was built in the 1720s, and was acquired for the crown in 1772 by King Gustav III, who leant the Palace to his younger brother Duke Fredrik Adolf.
Major interior changes were made following 1881, when King Gustav V took over the Palace with his consort, Queen Victoria.

From Corbis:

Stockholm, Sweden" a Royal Greeting. All set to congratulate their great grandfather, King Gustaf V of Sweden, during yesterday's 91st birthday celebration, are (left to right), Princess Birgitta, Little Prince Carl Gustaf and the Princess Margaretha, Christina, and Desiree. The old Monarch celebrated his birthday with the royal family at the royal Castle of Tullgarn.

From the Tullgarn Palace broschure:

In the room 'Lilla förmaket' (see file name) there is now a small tree table with glass, keeping the guestbook and the page you can see the self written signatures of the last Tsar Family of Russia. They came to Tullgarn on an official visit with a large ship in their last years...
