STOCKHOLM pt 2

Stockholm is one of the world’s most beautiful and gentle-paced capital cities. It’s built across thirteen islands and it has more grandeur than you would expect from modern-day, egalitarian Sweden. After all, a couple of hundred years ago Sweden was a world power – so there are palaces and fine buildings to match. But it’s Stockholm’s waterside location that gives it its greatest charm. You can take boat trips around the city – head inland – and out into the archipelago of thousands of islands on the way into the Baltic Sea proper. These guides take a very complete walking tour around the old town – Gamla Stan – and then walk on towards the National Theatre and finally on to visit the world’s first open-air, folk museum at Skansen. Skansen is a fabulous collection of farmhouses, churches, peasant buildings from all over Sweden which have been rebuilt here in parkland. There’s even a zoo of Nordic animals.You’ll have a complete view of Stockholm if you download the full Stockholm series…
