Stockholm Stadion is the oldest stadium in Stockholm, built and used for the Olympic Summer Games in Stockholm 1912.
The stadium should be re-built a bit during this winter, to be a bit more modern.
Djurgården-supporters stands on the long side, while there is also a sitting group of singing supporters at section F, on the other side of the stadium.
Away-supporters stand in a big sector in one of the curve.
Unfortunately, as it was used during the Olympics, the stadium has running-tracks around the pitch. That makes the arena much less genuine, and it’s not among my favourite-stadiums in Sweden.
Best seats for a e neutral should be on the long-side stand, as much in the middle as possible. If you want to stand up I suggest you go to the other side of the stadium, where you’ll find standing places, but still with quite good view.
Try to stand away from the curves, the away-section included, as you’ll have a couple of kilometers from there to the pitch…
The Vasa Museum
See this beautifully preserved ship from 1628 in a fabulous museum with eight large exhibitions. “The Age of Vasa” is a journey in time to the country behind this ship. Films and guided tours in several languages. Prize-winning shop and restaurant.
Djurgården (The Animal Garden) is a recreational isle in the middle Stockholm.
This is the site of the Wasa Museet, the museum of the old ship the Wasa. And also the Gröna Lund, the amusement park can be found here.
But the main part of the isle is just a quiet park in which you don't have a clue that you are even in a city. Only the sporadic horn of a big ship will let you remember that you are in the city.
Go to Djurgardsbron to 'Skepp&Hoj'.
Here you can rent:all kinds of boats (such as kayaks, kanoes and rowing boats), bikes and in-line skates.
It's a wonderful, green area!
Djurgarden has a wonderful park to skate. And is great to go with your boat. You can also stop over for a pcknick at the water side.
The safari in the zoo was great. You go thru the safari with the bus you arrived with. We actually had to stop for a half an hour or so, cos 3 giraffes just stood in front of our bus and wouldn't move no matter what!
Also you must see the dolphins. Unless you've seen them live in an ocean or something, you gotta see them, they're really cute!
Take a bus or walk to Djurgarden and visit The garden of Rosendal.
They have deliscios pasterys, salads and sandwishes. If it's raining/snowing you can sit in the greenhouse-if not - sit in the garden. They also sell marmelade, lemonade on bottles, honey and more...
It's very popular, among all ages- especially in the weekends.
Home of various must-see Sights such as
Vasamuseet the Wasa Museum, Gröna Lund the amusement park, which is also host of numerous concerts, Liljewalchs Konsthall the Liljewalch art hall, open air museum and zoological park of Skansen.
The perimeter boat cruise of Djurgaden. Skaansen itself and the Zoo
The zoo is open, many animals are caged but there is an area where they are not, and the lemurs were incredible, as well as small monkeys which appearred very tame and were 12 inches away...no cages! This little guy is about five inches long excluding tail and the species is the smallest in the world.
Skaansen is a fantactic outdoor museum, but there would have been more actiivity after April (in the summer)
On Djurgården you can find lots of outdoor activities.
'Gröna Lund' is the place for you if you want to have some fun. Amusementpark with some scaring attractions. If you're afraid of heights (like I am), don't even think about riding 'Fritt fall' (in english free falling), 80 metres of pure fear. But they also have a 6 metres 'Fritt fall' for children - more my kind of ride.
Vasa museum - take a look at the warship that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628.
Rosendals Gardens and Castle - stroll in the beautiful garden and have a 'fika' at the outdoor-café. Yummy sandwiches and lovely flowers.
There are many more museums at Djurgården - Nordic Museum, Junibacken (Astrid Lindgren's world), Aquaria-Water museum etc.
Djurgarden is one of the islands that make up the city of Stockholm.It is a reen and pleasant area where many of the inhabitants go to relax.A lot of museums are located here and it is a very pleasant area to go walking or cycling.A tram runs from the city centre all the way around the island.
