Solliden was my favourite spot on Öland island. This beautiful chateau has been the summer residence of the Swedish royal family since 1906. It was built by German-born Queen Victoria of Sweden in 1903, and inherited by the current King, Carl Gustav XVI in 1960....More

Visited Solliden Park with the family. 2 adults and 1 child costs 250 skr. A bit overpriced cause there wasn't that much to see and do really. Some nice flowers and trees, but not so much besides that.
