Vasa Museum

The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

When visiting Stockholm, and you would be allowed to visit only one thing: go to Vasa: the setup of the museum is fantastic! When you come out, you learned something on acient Swedish way of living, but also the basics on shipbuilding.

Millesgarden

Welcome to Millesgården - an oasis just 15 minutes from downtown Stockholm. Millesgården is an artist home, a vast sculpture park with flower beds and Fountains, art gallery, restaurant, antique collection and a museum shop.

Reviewed By StockholmKindaGuy - Atlanta

I was already familiar with the work of Carl Milles, a favorite sculptor of mine. Many of his sculptures adorn the Cranbrook educational community near Detroit, where he taught for 20 years. Like Cranbrook, Millesgården offers a beautiful environment to showcase his most important works, having once been his home and studio. There's approximately 200 to see.
The park has this magical and enchanting quality about it that reminded me of the "Lord of the Rings" movies. It made for an enjoyable walk. I was pleasantly surprised to see works by Marshall Fredericks, a Michigan sculptor famous for his "Spirit of Detroit' sculpture, who studied under Milles.
In addition to the Sculpture Park, you can also view Milles' home and studio, complete with molds, as well as the beautiful home of his assistant Anne, with furniture designed by Josef Frank. There's also a gallery with temporary Exhibitions.

There's a lot to see, so give yourself enough time. By the time you finish your visit, you should have a good understanding of this important artist's life. I would advise going on a sunny day if possible. There's a cafe/restaurant on the grounds, as well as a nice gift shop. I picked up a beautiful book on Millisgården.
Adult Admission is 150 SEK. You can easily reach Millesgården using public transportation. It's short walk from the bus/tram stop.
If you're in Stockholm, this is a must do.

Stockholm Old Town

The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

Reviewed By Keggfish - Perth, Western Australia

Wonderful old town with fantastic architecture, beautifully preserved and looked after. Unfortunately, as with many tourist spots, the main streets are chock-a-block of shops flogging evrything possible to tourists, but get in the back streets and things quickly change. Just a lovely experience, especially in the cool of winter. Fantastic tasteful christmas lights.

Monteliusvagen

Reviewed By Robert M

This is My absolute favorite place to go for when I just want to enjoy the view for my lovely city!
Whenever you’re a pro or amateur photographer or if you’re just in the city for a minute I would highly recommend for you to bring a camera and be prepared to fill out your camera roll!
The best time to enjoy the view is when it’s bright outside.
A tip: bring a snack or something to eat and to skip the expensive restaurant and cafe you can go to the supermarket “Götgatan 17A” that’s is close by the viewpoint and it’s cheap.
They are open 07-23 almost every day.
That’s all from me, thank for Reading.
Until next time see you soon!

Kungliga Djurgarden

Reviewed By Jeroen-TA - The Netherlands

This area is fantastic for a wintery walk through a snowy park. Don't be fooled by the main TripAdvisor picture: the blue gates are nice but apart from that small construction this is mostly a park. Or if you are up to a 6 km hike towards the center of the isle, which I highly recommend, you'll get to walk through a bit of "city forest" (if there's even such a term). Only stupid mistake I made was going on city shoes... so bring sensible shoes!

Stockholm City Hall

The Stockholm City Hall is one of Sweden's most famous buildings, and one of the capital's most visited tourist attractions. It houses offices for 200 people including the Municipal Council, and is also famous for its grand ceremonial halls and unique art pieces. The Stockholm City Hall is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet held on 10 December each year. Between May and September, the City Hall Tower offers a breathtaking view of Stockholm.

This wasn’t that high on our bucket list for Stockholm but a beautiful crisp morning found us drawn to it’s iconic icy waterside location and serendipity intervened to announce an English language tour commencing in 10 minutes time at 11am. It proved to be an absolute delight ... a fascinating insight into Swedish culture and history ... as well as an eccentric but engaging architectural entertainment ... all brought to life by a very accomplished young guide. I think this will be one of the highlights of our five day visit ... and that’s saying something.

I was really not aware of just how long Sweden was at war before modern times. Something like 400 years of conflict and that doesn't count Viking times. The collection here is just so-so but i have been to a lot of military museums. I was very impressed with the history lesson and the representative pieces that they had. Small coffee shop with only very light snack.

Stockholm Canals

Reviewed By roaming13 - London, United Kingdom

Had a couple of runs around the canals, lovely setting and very well kept, the canals provide walks where you can take excellent photos and have a sense of the layout of the city. I found it very useful to understand the layout of the old town.

Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde

Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde, originally the home of Prince Eugen, became state-owned after the Prince's death in accordance with his will, and is now among the most-visited art museums in Sweden. In the Mansion the Prince's Private Apartments remain mostly unchanged, while the two upper floors and the Gallery building are used for temporary Exhibitions or for exhibiting works by the Prince or from his collections. The estate is set in a beautiful parkland, featuring centuries-old oak trees. Its situation by the inlet to Stockholm harbour presents the visitor with stunning views of the water. Welcome to Sweden's most beautiful art museum!

Reviewed By MrPhileasF - London, United Kingdom

One of Stockholm's nicest art museum is Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde on the royal island of Djurgården with a marvellous views over the town and the water. There is a big park, the museum and a nice restaurant and coffee shop. There is a great permanent collection as well as several temporary Exhibitions. Make sure you take a stroll around the Gardens as well as the museum. The easiest way to get there is tram number 7 from Kungsträdgården.
