Haga Palace, Solna
Haga Palace

The Haga Palace, which is located in Haga Park in the municipality of Solna, was built between 1802 and 1804. The Palace was commissioned by King Gustav IV Adolf.
The current King, Carl XVI Gustav, and his four sisters - Princesses Margaretha, Birgitta, Désirée and Christina - were all born at the Palace; where the family (the five children and their parents, Prince Gustav Adolf and Princess Sibylla) lived until Prince Gustav Adolf's death in 1947.
Haga Palace was transferred to the Swedish Government in 1966 by the then King, Gustav VI Adolf. The Government today uses the Palace for guests of the Government.

Gustav III's Pavillion and the Copper Tents lie inside the grounds of Haga Park.

-King Gustav III commissioned the building of the Pavillion
-The Pavillion was built in 1787 by the architect Olof Tempelman
-Artist Louis Masreliez was commissioned to do the interiors of the Pavillion
-The Pavillion was just one of the many grand ideas Gustav III had for Haga Park, many of these did not get past the drawing board
-Gustav III used the Pavillion in the years before his assassination
-It was from the Pavillion that Gustav III left for the masquerade ball in March 1792
-King Oscar I commissioned a restoration of the building in the 1840s

Before Prince Gustav Adolf died, then the royal family moved to the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
And yes looks abit small.

Maybe there's a wing we can't see from the photos. But it does look charming and not too intimidating. I would assume that if the king and his many sisters grew up there it is probably more spacious than it looks.

Very true, it is smaller than one would expect a palace to be. However, right now it is just the 2 of them. Even if they add kids it will be a nice home for a family. I wonder if this is larger than her aparment at her parents palace/castle?

Even though Haga Palace may be smaller than some of the other palaces, it is probably the most updated. Since the Swedish Government used Haga Palace to house important visitors, it must be in wonderful condition. The heating, plumbing, electrical, structural and landscaping have surely been updated and modernized. The interior and furnishings must also be in very good condition. If so, then this is the very best choice for the couple. "Move in Ready" is a very good thing. In this time of fiscal uncertainty, it is also the wisest choice financially.

Cost of renovation
According to Expressen and Dagens Industri the budget for renovating Haga is 40,4MSEK. According to Expressen Victorias slott renoveras för 40 miljoner - Leva & bo - Heminredning Leva Bo Allt för Hus & Hem | Expressen this is split between security (16,1MSEK), rebuilding (7,6MSEK) and renovation (16,7MSEK). The electrical systems and piping for water and sewage is among what will be changed, as well as building new kitchen and bathrooms.

I read in one of the translated articles that a place was being prepared at Haga Palace for Daniel's parents. Is this a new or renovated building? Will they live there or is it a place for them when they visit? There appears to be another building nearby. Perhaps this is for staff and security personnel. I look forward to seeing some pictures of the refurbished interior of Haga Palace.

After stumbling my way through comments to your posts on renovations to Haga Palace, I have decided that the "place" for Daniel's family and friends is Stallmastargarden - a Hotel and Restaurant near Haga. I think the article addressed whether there would be a lighted walkway between the Hotel and Haga Palace. It would be a likely place for Daniel to house his family and friends during the wedding festivities. Did I get it right this time? I can get translations of articles, but not always for the comments. I am beginning to recognize some phrases, but am a long way from being fluent in Swedish. Nevertheless, I enjoy the Royal Forums very much.

I found a 3D computer drawing of Haga that includes the side building.
Haga Castle by nerow - Google 3D Warehouse

I've always thought it looked smaller then the size it stated as, so I'm assuming it includes the building that's attached to it. I've noticed that most of the photos of Haga tend not to show the side building, I actually didn't even know there was more to Haga because you hardly ever see in in photos. I have some questions about it.
Does anyone one know what the building on the side is/was used for?
It doesn't have look at the same as the 'main house' (looks more like a big house -or manor- then a palace to me), was it added on later?
If not, why wasn't it designed to flow more with the house?
