Attractions in Stockholm
If you have a penchant for culture and history, then Stockholm is a city that should be on your “merit list”. According to DigoPaul, Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden. There are many great sights here, especially within museums and venerable buildings.
Gamla Stan is the venerable district of Stockholm that is best preserved from its origins in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a favorite tourist destination for those who want to relax a bit from the stressful main streets, while the district also has a vibrant artery with both nightclubs, restaurants, tourist shops and the like. Gamla Stan also has a number of interesting museums that will pique the interest of those interested in history, and we recommend that you set aside at least one day to discover this historical gem.
Djurgården and Skansen
Outdoor lovers must set aside at least one day to visit Djurgården, which is the most beautiful and lush island in Stockholm. This is a quiet island where you can both enjoy a good meal at a restaurant, or stop by a museum. The island is perhaps the most family-friendly part of Stockholm, where the experiences are in a row. Close to Djurgården you will also find Skansen, which is the zoo in the Swedish capital. A visit here will offer encounters with everything from wild, Nordic animals to some slightly more exotic animals from other continents.
Are you impressed with the Norwegian castle? Then you should stop by the royal castle in Stockholm, namely Drottningholm’s castle. It was built in the 17th century and is one of the works listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is a sight you can not avoid visiting if you are in the Swedish capital, and the castle is by the way the Swedish royal family’s daily residence. Nevertheless, guided tours are arranged both inside and outside the castle.
Monteliusvagen is a cozy and beautifully landscaped scenic road located about 10 minutes walk from Stockholm city center. The road is about 500 meters long and has a great panoramic view of Stockholm. If you want a short walk, at the same time as you get to see Stockholm from one of the city’s highest points, a walk along Monteliusvagen is a nice little excursion.

The Vasa Museum
In 1668, one of the largest warships of the time, Vaasa, was launched in Stockholm. Due to a design error, the warship sank on the maiden voyage outside Beckholmen in Stockholm’s inlet. In 1956 the ship was found by divers and in 1961 the ship was raised. The ship was in very good condition and an extensive restoration work was started to preserve the ship for posterity. The ship together with a number of the artifacts that were found can now be seen at Vasamsuset.
