So who wouldn't like to get a small palace as a present? In this case Queen Lovisa Ulrika did on her birthday in the year 1753. Kina Slott was given to her by her husband King Adolf Fredrik as a surprise gift. Chinoiserie was the height of fashion in those days and thus the present was highly appreciated.
The original wooden building didn't last so long though, and it was replaced only 10 years later by the current "Kina Slott", which is bigger then the original, but maybe more important at the time: it became a more permanent structure. Nowadays Kina Slott has one of the finest European rococo interiors with chinoiserie. It really is a fascinating place to walk around in, see the magnificent colours of the interior and the way how "China" was considered to be in those days.
