Evert Taube's Terrace[edit]

Evert Taube's terrace is a stone-paved place on western Riddarholmen in Stockholm. The terrace is located between the Wrangel Palace and Riddarfjärden and forms part of Norra Riddarholmshamnen. Evert Taube's terrace has housed Taube's statue, sculpted by Willy Gordon since 1990.

Evert Taube's terrace was laid out in the early 1960s and was named in 1983 after the troubadour Evert Taube. In 1990, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Taube's birth, a bronze sculpture of Willy Gordon, depicting Evert Taube, wearing a sombrero and poncho, was erected. In one hand he holds his Swedish lute, with the other he shows over Riddarfjärden and Södermalm, where he lived. Behind him rises Stockholm City Hall. The sculpture was a gift from the Friends of the Evert Taube Society. The plinth is carved from granite from Vinga, Taube's birthplace.

At the southwestern part of the terrace is the sculpture "Solbåten" by the sculptor Christian Berg, erected in 1966.[1]
