The king stones

Photographer: Albin Ponnert
Description

In 1827 the Swedish crown prince Oscar stayed for dinner at this very spot. He found the place inviting and with a lovely view of Lake Tiken. Oscar had a stone raised to celebrate this moment. This stone became known as the first “king stone”. Since then two more kings – Gustaf VI Adolf and the present king Carl XVI – have chosen to raise stones at the same location.
