Sweden’s capital city spreads out over 14 islands in Lake Malaren and looks out proudly to the Baltic Sea to the east. Her grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 year old history beautifully. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the Old Town (Gamla Stan); expect and get cobblestone streets, crooked but beautifully preserved buildings, the Royal Palace, gothic churches and excellent cafes, bars, restaurants and Swedish design-ware shops.
Skansen is beautifully located on Royal Djurgården and sports spectacular views over all Stockholm. This is also a Sweden in miniature. It was founded in 1891. Travel back in time and touch the past in the form of historic houses and gardens, where traditional pastimes are still conducted. 150 farms and dwellings from different parts of the country were disassembled and transported here. Swedish traditions such as Midsummer, Walpurgis Night and Lucia are celebrated at Skansen.
