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.
Museum Vasa — Swedish Maritime Museum in Stockholm on djurgården island. The Museum presents almost fully intact 64-gun ship of the XVII century, the “Vasa”, which sank in 1628 during your first access to the sea. The Vasa
Museum opened in 1990 and is the most visited Museum in Scandinavia.
Vasa is the world’s only surviving ship of the XVII century, unique artistic value and one of the most prominent tourist attractions on a global scale. The Swedes are anxiously approached the creation of a Museum around this sad fact of how poorly designed the ship, who could not swim, and 300 years which are hindering the navigation in one of the harbors of the city. The ship Gustav Vasa lovingly restored, around it is built over 3 floors, allowing it to go around and look from different angles. Same here – the skeletons of the crew, wax figures, Patriotic paraphernalia, paintings of the king himself and several old cannons.
