  Lisbet Palme was the best guide to Stockholm any visitor to the city  could dream of. Here she introduces Iliyasu to the beautiful Waldemars Udde art gallery and to its history. The gallery is located in the home of late Prince Augene of Sweden, a dedicated artist in his own right, but known to Norwegians as the prince who turned down the invitation to become king of Norway.
