Today is at leisure to enjoy this beautiful city.
We highly recommend visiting the Vasa Museum and Skansen, the world’s largest open-air museum.
On Djurgården, a natural resort in the heart of Stockholm, you will visit Vasa Museum, Scandinavia’s most visited museum, known for its maritime history and Housing of the Vasa warship. The Vasa, perhaps the grandest and most ambitious ship ever to be built in Sweden, is the city’s prized treasure. She capsized and sank straight to the bottom on her maiden voyage in the 17th century only to be salvaged nearly 333 years later in 1961.
In the same area, you could also visit Skansen, the world’s largest open-air museum. Displaying the life and buildings over the last 150 years, this miniature Sweden depicts how the city has evolved. During the summer months, there are often live concerts, folk music, and dancing in Skansen.
Alternatively, take one of the public boats to the royal residence of Drottningholm. The palace, built in 1662, is now the residence of Sweden's royal family. It was originally built as a Baroque palace and later extended and refurbished in the rococo style. Visit the magnificent Baroque Court Theatre, which is the oldest preserved theatre still in use with authentic decor and machinery.
