While the architectural inspirations for the Royal Palace in Oslo have traditionally been sought in Denmark and Germany, the exterior and interior of Elghammar Manor in Sweden may also have been an influence. Designed by the Russian architect Giacomo Quarenghi, Elghammar is untypical of Swedish architecture, but bears a certain resemblance to the Bonde Mansion in Stockholm as well as to Krontorp Manor, which has traditionally been ascribed to H.D.F. Linstow, the architect of theRoyal Palace.
