E33***72Engaging museum about the tragic history of gigantic ship that held some significance to the history of Sweden. Good place to know about the past of Sweden through the story of the ship (the salvaged ship is in the museum too - it’s 5-6 storey high and well-preserves).
Robson CadoreWelcome to the one of the largest palaces in Europe. The Stockholm Palace or the Royal Palace is the official residence of the king od the Sweden, with more than 600 rooms! Mornings are less busier.
_We***43The City Hall is known as the last real building in Sweden. Here is a colorful world, a unique art palace supported by the beautiful water city. Even the design of a step has its own unique features. It is easy for us to appreciate the unique skills and conscientious work attitude of architects. There are also many humorous episodes and beautiful details that make people laugh. It is a great place to understand Swedish humanities and traditional arts and modern society.
XuefeiMake me strong Amway everyone this Skansen‼ ️
One of my favorite museums in Stockholm💕
SKANSEN, the world's first open-air folklore museum. Founded in 1891, it covers an area of more than 30 hectares and has more than 150 houses to show people the life of the Swedes in the past. Including farmhouse, barn, church and bell tower
There is also a zoo in the park, which mainly displays animals that grow in the cold regions of Northern Europe. Children especially love Sikansen Park. Skansen is the world's first open-air museum, where a miniature landscape of the entire Sweden is displayed. From the houses, there are wooden or brick houses with grass roofs in southern Sweden, cone-shaped wooden houses in the north, churches and bell towers, almost gathering buildings from all over Sweden.
There are actually many animals here. There are many Scandinavian animals, including wolves, brown bears, moose, eagles, otters, sea lions and so on. No wonder so many local children come here, it’s a treasure museum.‼ ️
海星jMSP was one of nine international landscape design firms to be invited to design a small garden installation on the theme of “the harmonious co-existence of nature and the city” at the 2011 International Horticulture Exhibition in Xi’An, China. The garden will be seen by up to 12 million
The #stockholm city hall is definitely worth paying a visit when you are there for a #holiday
This building is the host of many activities, meetings and exhibitions in Stockholm and if you like to visit inside, you will need to join a tour they conduct. Nonetheless, the exterior is also worth checking out as it is beautifully constructed, and it has really good views of the river and the city skyline. you can also catch nice sunset from there. From the city hall, you can also stroll down the river to have a meal at one of the restaurants or cafes there.
To reach there, there are many buses that go that way, including the Stockholm hop on and hop off bus.

The spectacular ceilings and wooden supports of a former brewery are a central focus of the property’s redesign. The site serves as an administrative headquarters, with the large industrial space providing ample room for offices and conference rooms. The brick and woodwork were carefully restored to extend the building’s life, which had suffered neglect following the brewery’s closure. Details such as control panels, gothic windows, and diaper patterned brick walls feature prominently in the renovation.
Skansen Open-Air Museum
The world's oldest open-air museum, the Skansen, on the island of Djurgården, is a great attraction for families, especially those with young children. Not only will you be treated to the same authentic Swedish flavors as before, but also the beautiful Skansen Aquarium and Children's Zoo. More than 150 different buildings and houses were collected from all over the country and reassembled here. On display are the different districts of the city, including a manor house, bakery, beautiful wooden church Seglora, and pottery, all brought to life by costumed staff. In the zoo there are moose, bears, lynxes, wolves and seals. You can visit the aquarium for an additional fee and see more than 200 different animals from around the world, including many species of monkeys. For traditional Swedish Smörgåsbord head to the Solliden Restaurant.
Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252.
All of Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen are like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. Gamla Stan is also popular with aficionados of handicrafts, curious, and souvenirs. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook.
There are several beautiful churches and museums in Gamla Stan, including Sweden’s national cathedral Stockholm Cathedral and the Nobel Prize Museum. The largest of the attractions in the district is the Royal Palace, one of the largest palaces in the world with over 600 rooms. In addition to the reception rooms, there are several interesting museums in the Palace, including the Royal Armory, with royal costumes and armor. Don't miss the parade of soldiers and the daily changing of the guard.
Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan are the district’s main streets. The city wall that once surrounded the city ran inside these streets along what is now Prästgatan. In the middle of Gamla Stan is Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm. Stortorget is the central point from which runs Köpmangatan, the oldest street in Stockholm, which was mentioned as early as the fourteenth century. Mårten Trotzigs gränd (Mårten Trotzigs alley) is hard to find. It’s the narrowest alley in Gamla Stan, only 90 centimeters wide at its narrowest point. Make sure not to miss Riddarholmen and the Riddarholmen Church. The church is a royal burial church and was built as a Franciscan monastery for the so-called Grey Brother monks in the thirteenth century.
Bromma Blocks is not only a mall but a shopping complex with many larger stores surrounding it, sitting adjacent to Bromma Airport! The mall has recently expanded and now hosts 80 different stores, including supermarkets and eateries. It is described as having a contemporary warehouse feel to it and is the place to be if you're after something more modern, in terms of shopping experiences. 😃
Nacka Forum has over 150 stores and is the main mall for Southern shoppers. It is located just south of Stockholm, in the suburb Nacka, most other malls being located in the North. This mall is owned by the same company as Mall of Scandinavia and Täby Centrum. So yet again the services are similar but not quite as extended as the ones previously mentioned. This mall is suitable for people of all ages and I highly recommend it to everyone from locals to tourists! 🤗
