Rosendahl Palace is an important destination for excursions. This is a beautiful architectural monument of the beginning of the 19th century.

The Södermalm district is quite an attractive one when it comes to architectural and historical aspect. This is where the atmosphere of extraordinary originality reigns. We can say that this is the most colorful district of the city, and it is definitely the best place for you if you are considering exploring the local culture. The Slussen Bridge separates the above mentioned district from the Old Town region. Narrow romantic streets and buildings slightly contrasting with each other in height, all create a unique atmosphere here, and it would not be a good idea to refrain from a good walk around the area. By the way, there are two viewing platforms here – Fjallgatan and Monteliusvagen – which offer unforgettable views of the Old Town. Movie fans and admirers of Stieg Larsson’s work will be interested to discover the familiar pictures from the movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

The capital of Sweden is located on 14 Islands, for which it received its unofficial name as the city of 14 Islands. At one of the Islands, Riddarholmen, you can take a fascinating walk on the Stockholm house’s roofs. Perhaps one of these roofs is home to famous Karlson? We can say that this is one of the best observation platforms in the city, presenting it from a completely different side. While on this Island, you should definitely explore Stenbock Palace, Birger Jarls torg, as well as Riddarholmskyrkan, which is a well-preserved monument of sacral architecture, and take a walk along the ferry pier.

In addition to Vasamuseet, the Fotografiska museum is also popular in the city. Photographers as well as those keen on photography will find it interesting to visit the museum.

Furthermore, the museum has become quite a frequent venue for holding interesting concerts. Nobelmuseet is dedicated not only to the prominent native of the city Alfred Nobel, but also to those who received his award. Livrustkammaren is a wonderful museum for those who want to get acquainted with the life of kings and queens. Among the exhibits of the museum, there are even love letters from Princess Marie Antoinette and the Swedish Prince.
Stockholm The pop group ABBA, is another unofficial symbol of Sweden. It is therefore not surprising that there is a museum in the city dedicated to the group. Its exhibits include costumes and souvenirs associated with the group. The museum features interiors of the times when the group of four were popular.

Well and of course, it is impossible not to mention the Kungliga slottet, in which the Nobel Prize ceremony is held. The building was constructed in baroque style. It is interesting to look at the Changing of the Guard. There are three museums in the building. In one of them there are royal regalia, in the other, you can take a look at the royal apartments, and the third is the Museum Tre Kronor. Next to the Royal Palace is a monument of religious architecture Storkyrkan. It is notable foe the reason that it is the oldest church in the entire city, built, as is believed, at the end of the 13th century. This is a historic place too – formerly Swedish kings were crowned here.
