25 years ago the world’s first national urban park was formed. The Royal National City park is a 27 square kilometer green area in Stockholm and Solna with rich wildlife, historic landscapes and buildings. The Park offers something for everyone. You can encounter deer and hares, even foxes and moose, and spot rare birds, butterflies, and insects, right inside the city and you can walk for days through the park, discovering ever new lovely spots.

The reason for the park's emergence was that the area since the 1990s was threatened by extensive exploitation. It was then about protecting the area's great natural, cultural and recreational value, which was done thanks to the commitment and collaboration of authorities, non-profit organizations and political forces in 1995.
