Walking further through the Drottningholm park I found myself in green walls, narrow corridors and numerous arches. Sculptures appeared unexpectedly when I walked along the alleys.
The purpose of the statues was to surprise a visitor by their unexpected appearance in a green area or as a focal point for a vista. Many fountains also were in this part of the park.
Then I came to the English informal garden.
The English garden section of Drottningholm was laid to the north of the Baroque garden and consists of two ponds, bridges, large open sections of grass and trees in groups.
Many walkways were made in this large part of the park. Most of the antique marble statues throughout the gardens were purchased by Gustav III from Italy.
Since the palace and the park is located on a small island, it is surrounded by the Baltic Sea bays. When I got to the shore, I was amazed by beautiful views.
Gulls, geese, ducks, pigeons were flying and floating on the water. In the distance white yachts were visible. Bright blue evening sky completed the picture of peace and tranquility.
Here is my video about this park:
