The Blue Cabinet is a so-called print room with a set of hand coloured prints by Volpato and Ducros from their 'Vue de Rome et de ses environs' published in 1780 glued directly on to the walls. They were unfortunately varnished so they have yellowed with time. The floor is covered with a hand painted canvas by Prince Fredric's court painter Anders Hultgren. It is a very rare survival of such a kind of floor since it was covered by a carpet in the 19th century. The commode is a work by Georg Haupt c 1780 and the pole-screen was embroidered by Princess Sophia Albertina.

Tullgarn, near Trosa in Södermanland, is one of our most popular royal destinations and is less than an hour away from Stockholm by car. Tullgarn Palace was the summer palace of King Gustaf V and Queen Viktoria. The palace was originally built for Duke Fredrik Adolf in the 1770s. The palace park has avenues of lime trees, and makes a delightful spot for a picnic.

Escape from the "State Prison" - Summer at Tullgarn
Gustaf V and his family spent many long summers at Tullgarn. Queen Victoria, who in dark times called the Royal Palace the "State Prison", loved animals and nature. At Tullgarn, by the sparkling bay and greenery, she received light and air.
Even though Tullgarn Palace remains closed until further notice, the park is a visit destination in itself, well worth a trip. A walk through Tullgarn Palace Park is a walk from the 17th century to the 20th century - from Carl Hårlemans linden tree avenues to Gustaf V and Queen Victoria's exotic tree species as a Japanese screen figure. Here are several old park buildings - Victoria's stable, the greenhouse and the inn. The inn houses a castle café which opens on June 13, and is then open Tuesday through Sunday. Ask for a takeaway if you want to enjoy a snack or lunch in the park. On the web are several recipes from the archives, including Gustaf V's Tullgarnspaj.

Tullgarn Palace Park and Cafe
During Gustav V and Victoria's summers at Tullgarn Palace, croquet was sometimes played in the beautiful linden tree avenue, coffee drinks in the orangery and boat excursions were a big part of summer life. Even today, the linden tree avenue, the orangery and the boathouse remain and can be discovered on a walk through the park.
On Saturday, Tullgarn Palace café opens. Here are places both inside and outside, if you want to settle down in the park, just ask for takeaway.
