It all began when Crown Prince Oscar II and his wife Sofia of Nassau visited Helsingborg. The couple fell in love with the view and close proximity to Denmark, and decided to buy Skabelycke Estate, where they built their summer residence Sophie-Ro. It was later passed on to grandson Crown Prince Gustaf VI Adolf and his first wife Crown Princess Margaret of Connaught, who both had a keen interest in gardening and together created a stunning garden with extensive flowerbeds, greenhouses and pathways. These days, knowledgeable gardeners and garden designers work to preserve their heritage, with the same desire to experiment and try new compositions.
