More about Stockholm
The green island of Djurgården is home to some of the city's
most popular attractions. Visit the world-famous warship - the
Vasamuseum; the world's oldest open-air museum - Skansen, or Astrid
Lindgren's Junibacken. One of the best ways to experience the
beauty of Stockholm is from the water. Naturally, a city built on
fourteen islands offers marvellous views over the water. There are
many different sightseeing tours to choose from.
If 14 islands aren't enough, Stockholm offers a wonderful
archipelago with 30,000 islands, islet rocks and skerries. Over 30%
of the city area is made up of waterways and another 30% is made up
of parks and green spaces, giving Stockholm perhaps the freshest
air of any European capital. Ekoparken was the first National City
Park in the world.
