The Vasa Museum in Stockholm is visited by over a million people annually, making it Sweden’s most popular museum.
Among many other treasures, the museum houses the famous Vasa battleship, which sat on the ocean’s bottom for over three centuries. In 1961 it was heroically salvaged and put on display for the world to enjoy.
Gamla Stan is a tiny island located in Stockholm’s Old City Center. The small town is full of cobbled streets, bright and colorful 17th-18th century buildings, shops, and tea rooms, and visitors can enjoy shopping, eating, and the beautiful views of the city.
Drottningholm Palace, the private residence of the Swedish royal family, is a 45-minute boat ride away from Stockholm. A day trip to the Palace is ideal for history and architecture buffs.
You can also visit the Drottningholm Court Theatre in addition to the Palace and the stunning landscaped gardens.
