Museum
“At Skansen, you can discover Sweden’s history and find out how Swedes once lived according to the changing seasons, through the customs and traditions, work, celebrations and everyday life of times gone by. This is also a place where festive occasions are celebrated throughout the year. The lively programme of activities includes singing, dancing and concerts in the summer, and Christmas markets in the winter with dancing around the Christmas tree and concerts at Seglora Church. Skansen is a unique place where history meets the present day, where Swedish traditions and craftsmanship live on, and where people of all ages come together. This is the world’s only open-air museum with wild animals. Here you can see Nordic wildlife, rare breeds, pets and exotic creatures. The Children’s Zoo features domestic animals such as cats, rabbits and guinea pigs, as well as small wild animals. The Skansen Aquarium and Our Africa feature exotic animals including monkeys, birds, reptiles and insects. ”

Trail
“Part of the Royal National City Park, the lush Haga Park (or just Haga) is situated approx 30-35 mins walk away from my Airbnb. Founded by the monarch Gustav III in 1780-1797, Haga is Sweden's foremost example of an English landscape park, and one of Sweeden’s most popular recreational areas. It's also the site of many historical landmarks. The Chinese Pavilion, The Turkish Kiosk, and The Royal Burial Ground are all found in the park. Within the park is also Haga Palace, the residence of Crown Princess Victoria and her family.”

“Great Swedish food with a view over Slussen. Not too expensive. Old-fashined interior. Note: The station Slussen is rebuilding currently. So the view isn't as great right now.”
