Gamla Stan/The Old Town
Gamla Stan/The Old Town is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centres in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252 and is perfect for a stroll, a Swedish “fika” (coffee break) or shopping for souvenirs.

The Royal Palace
Kungliga slottet is the official residence of His Majesty the King of Sweden, with over 600 rooms, which makes it one of the largest palaces in Europe. The Palace is open to the public and offers no less than five museums. The Palace was largely built during the eighteenth century, on the spot where the “Tre Kronor” castle burned down in 1697. There is a daily parade of soldiers and changing of the guard.

Drottningholm Palace is the private residence of the Swedish royal family. It is located in Drottningholm. It is built on Lovön island (in Ekerö Municipality of Stockholm County), and is one of Sweden's Royal Palaces. It was originally built in the late 16th century. It served as a residence to the Swedish royal court for most of the 18th century. Apart from being the private residence of the Swedish royal family, the palace is a popular tourist attraction.
Admission: 100 SEK

Artur Hazelius founded Skansen, in 1891, and in so doing he created the world’s first open-air museum. The museum portrays life and nature in Sweden principally from the 18th century onwards as accurately as possible based on well-documented knowledge. Here you can find collections of buildings and physical objects as well as typical Swedish species of plants and animals.
Admission: 70 SEK
