Rosendal Palace on Djurgården, east of Skansen, was built between 1823-1827. It was used as a summer retreat by King Karl XIV Johan, and later by King Oskar as an oasis away from his official duties. The palace was never used as a permanent home and was turned into a museum after the death of King Oskar II.
