Ulriksdal, 4 PM

Ulriksdal Palace on the banks of the Edsviken in the National City Park, 6 km north of Stockholm. It was originally called Jakobsdal after its owner Jacob De la Gardie, who had it built by architect Hans Jacob Kristler in 1643-1645 as a country retreat. The present design is mainly the work of architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder and dates from the late 17th century. The Palace Theatre, the Confidencen, is today the oldest Rococo theatre in Sweden.

A nice retreat and, I imagine, a fine theater now.
