  Haga slott

This is where the present king was born. The castle's proportions are a bit odd and the artistic Gustav III would not have liked it but since his own masterpiece was never finished, a new and smaller castle was built here in the 19th century as the Gustav III's Pavilion was deemed too small for the following royal families with all their children. The castle was used as a home for War children during the First World War but then went back to the royals. However, it was donated to the Swedish state when our present king was young, but only on the condition that it would be used to house state guests. Thus, presidents and others on state visits get to stay here.
