Tourist favorites in Stockholm

Stockholm Palace

The Stockholm Palace or Royal Palace is the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish Monarch. The palace is used for representative purposes by the King whilst performing his duties as the head of state. The first building on this site was a fortress with a core tower built in the 13th century by Birger Jarl to defend Lake Mälaren. The fortress grew to a palace, named Tre Kronor ("Three Crowns") after the core towers' spire. In the late 16th century, much work was done to transform the old fortress into a Renaissance-style palace under King John III. In 1690, it was decided to rebuild the palace in Baroque style after a design by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger. The palace has 1430 rooms, 660 with windows and is one of the largest royal palaces in the world still in use for its original purpose. The Stockholm Palace can be visited, and contains several museums.

Skansen

Skansen is the first open air museum and zoo in Sweden and is located on the island Djurg√•rden. It was founded in 1891 by Artur Hazelius (1833√ʬĬď1901) to show the way of life in the different parts of Sweden before the industrial era. After extensive travelling, Hazelius bought around 150 houses from all over the country (as well as one structure from Telemark in Norway) and had them shipped piece by piece to the museum, where they were rebuilt to provide a unique picture of traditional Sweden. Only three of the buildings in the museum are not original, and were painstakingly copied from examples he had found. The many exhibits over the 75 acre (300,000 m√ā¬≤) site include a full replica of an average 19th-century town, in which craftsmen in traditional dress such as tanners, shoemakers, silversmiths, bakers and glass-blowers demonstrate their skills in period surroundings. There is even a small patch growing tobacco used for the making of cigarettes. There is also an open-air zoo containing a wide range of Scandinavian animals.
