One of my favourite things to do while in Stockholm was to walk around the city. From the central station to the old town, Gamla Stan is a bit more than 20 minute walk. A bit further there’s Djurgården, one of the islands of the Stockholm archipelago, and turned out to be my favourite to visit. Green and open spaces, fresh air next to the water, and many museums to visit. This article is about the places I’ve visited on my days in Stockholm. The vasa museum, Skansen, and Gröna Lund.

VASA MUSEUM

The nearest place to visit when walking to Djurgården was the Vasa museum. The museum holds the exhibition of the warship Vasa. An impressive ship that sadly sunk right after sailing, that never made it into battle. The exhibition tells the story of the warship, the building, the actual preservation, and the history that surrounded the times of the construction. Visit the Vasa museum site to get a better sight of how to access.

SKANSEN ZOO
Right in from of the tram station, Skansen park and zoo is a great place to spend a sunny day on open space. My devotion for animals makes me visit zoo and parks anytime I’ve got the chance to do so. Also museums inside the park and learning about swedish culture and history can be done in Skansen.

Moreover, a viking runestone can be found inside the park. I invite to try and find it!

To face my fears is a part of my job as an adventurer. That spider was a big NOPE, but inside a box was easier to touch.

GRÖNA LUND TIVOLI
The oldest amusement park in Sweden deserved a visit, and even more if guided by local friend. Founded in 1880’s and after many preservation and reconstruction this theme park is still going on in Stockholm. Perfect to leave out some steam in the roller coasters at the end of the day.
