Stockholm is known for its beauty, its buildings and architecture, its abundant clean and open water, and its many parks as you can see in Stockholm tourist map. It is sometimes referred to as Venice of the North. In recent years, tourism has played an important part in the city economy. Stockholm County is ranked as the 10th largest tourist destination in Europe, with over 10 million commercial overnight stays per year.
Arriving in the Swedish capital for the first time can be a dizzying experience. With lakes, pine trees and secluded beaches that contrast effortlessly with its world-class architecture and tourist attractions, this higgledy-piggledy city of 14 islands blends natural and man-made beauty with utterly charming results. Although this is a relatively expensive city, the Mariatorget district as its shown in Stockholm tourist map is a more peaceful and affordable option, which offers a large park with an observation deck and beautiful streets for strolling. The Slussen and Östermalm neighborhoods are just outside the center of activity but also have some good hotel options that are still ideal for sightseeing.
The historic old town, Gamla Stan, home to the Royal Palace and many other popular sightseeing tourist attractions, is a good choice, too, with its central location and easy access by water to the outlying sights. Abba museum as its mentioned in Stockholm tourist map is the number one tourist attraction in Stockholm and for good reason: not only is the interactive ABBA section wildly fun and informative, the Swedish Music Hall of Fame is in the same building (and included in your ticket price) and is in and of itself beautifully presented.

Dating from the 1200s and crammed with must-see sights, attractions, cafés, authentic restaurants, and boutique shops, the area of Gamla Stan (Old Town) is a living-breathing museum in its own right as you can see in Stockholm attractions map. The incredible Vasa battleship was intended to be the pride of the Swedish Imperial fleet, yet in a forerunner of the Titanic disaster centuries later, sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. A tranquil oasis in the heart of the city, the island of Djurgården draws tourists and locals alike, particularly during the summer months of long lazy days and short nights.
The oldest open-air museum in the world, Skansen, on the island of Djurgården, is a wonderful attraction for families, particularly those with young children. A visit in The Royal Palace (Sveriges Kungahus) could be a day out in itself. Located by the water edge on the periphery of Gamla Stan as its shown in Stockholm attractions map, this is the official residence of the King of Sweden. Fotografiska is Stockholm museum of contemporary photography and hosts an eclectic mix of exhibitions throughout the year. The complex encompasses a cafe, restaurant, store, and gallery, and from the top floor, you can enjoy one of the most enviable views over the city.
Nestled at the water edge and topped by three golden crowns, the City Hall is one of Stockholm most iconic buildings and stars in countless images and postcards of the city. The sea flows through the arteries of Stockholm, and during the summer months, the city is quite literally awash with boats of all shapes and sizes. The right-to-roam (allemansrätten) is an indelible part of the Swedish psyche. The Royal National City Park is a six-mile-long, 27 square-kilometer green space surrounding and snaking into Stockholm and encompassing three royal parks: Djurgården, Haga, and Ulriksdal as its mentioned in Stockholm attractions map.
The Stockholm zoo map shows recommended tours of the Stockholm Zoological Park. This zoo map of Stockholm will allow you to easily find out where each animal is and where to picnic in the Zoological Park of Stockholm in Sweden. The Stockholm zoo map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.
Stockholm Zoo is located on the premises and part of one of the world’s oldest open-air museums, Skansen, which was founded in 1891 on the island Djurgården as its mentioned in Stockholm zoo map. Skansen, consists of historical buildings and dwellings that provide a sense of Swedish history. As the Stockholm zoo comprises only indigenous Scandinavian animals including farm animals, which are part of Swedish history as well, it seems like an obvious choice to house these animals on this particular site, close to the city centre.
In addition to these native species in Stockholm zoo are exotic animals to be seen in the Skansen Aquarium. The ‘Akvariet’ is operated by another organisation, which explains the additional admission fee — on top of the Skansen admission fee — that is charged for this small but nevertheless interesting zoo with species exotic to Sweden (the name aquarium is misleading) as its shown in Stockholm zoo map.
The large enclosure of Stockholm zoo consists of two parts, separated by window panes but connected via a door that was open at time of visit. The grounds are undulating with rocks and trees, and there is a deep moat at the visitors side. The two wolverines were very active when I arrived and were chasing each other covering the area of both enclosures as its shown in Stockholm zoo map. It turned out they were excited and anxiously waiting for their food.
