Description

Nybro and Berzelii Park, in Stockholm, Sweden .


Comments / picturesThe park today is located in or near the city districts of Norrmalm and Östermalm, next to the Nybroplan and the Norrmalmstorg. The area surrounding Berzelii Park was part of Nybroviken bay until the mid-19th century. In the mid-1830s, a new bridge across the bay was being planned for the 25th anniversary of King Charles XIV. On the request of the king, the part of the bay inside the bridge was replaced with landfill, which transformed the existing bridge into more of a quay. This old bridge, Ladugårdslandsbron, was demolished in 1845.

During the work, a humerus bone from a Woolly Mammoth was found in 1849, which is now located at Swedish Museum of Natural History (NRM)
