Stockholm is a city of singular beauty, and it's not only my opinion: everybody, who has ever been to Stockholm would agree with me. Many people get really amused by how the areas managed to save their unique style and charm. You will never mix the elevation changes with their fantastic panoramic view of Soder area with the narrow streets of the medieval Old Town or the endless parks of Djurgarden, located on the place of former grazing lands. Their own individual characters also have the market streets in Stureplan and the roofed market in Ostermalm.
The Skansen Museum.
The Skansen is the oldest open-air ethnographic museum in the world. Since 1891 it is the favorite place for having quiet walks of almost every citizen of Stockholm. In the Skansen Museum it seems that the past times return back. There one can have a look at peasants' or landlords' ancient houses and workshops from all corners of Sweden. Where else you can see a smith or a glass-blower working, or buy custom-made lollypops in a small candy shop? On the territory of the park (which is, by the way 300 000 m2) takes place the zoo, where in the spacious aviaries live various northern animals: wolves, bears, gluttons, reindeer and of course elks.
