Skansen Scandinavian Open Air Museum

Skansen is like walking around in Sweden two hundred years ago. Old houses, old people, handmade candy and an old tired moose...and a lot more.

Skansen is a huge area situated on the Djurgården island in the middle of Stockholm City. Its like a capture of Swedish history, a piece of time inside a fence. All the school boys and girls have been to Skansen at least twice. Teachers tend to bring their students here no matter what the kids do to get away.

I can admit that Skansen kind of promises a lot when you are on the outside but unless you are very interested in old wooden churches, Scandinavian fauna or wool skirts you will not have a killer time for the money. But, since i really like animals, I will not be bored to death. Beside from the Swedish animals, you can also pay an extra entrance fee to get in to the Aquarium where you can watch monkeys, snakes, spiders, baboons and meerkats. If you come here, I recommend you to cough up some extra cash and get inside the Aquarium.

You can get here by ferry, or by bus. You can walk as well because it is not very far from the central parts of the city.
