5 Places You HAVE To Visit When You’re In Stockholm

Not just famous for their meatballs and IKEA.

I just came back from my trip to Stockholm not too long ago and was wowed by the city's rich heritage and culture, amazing architecture and food, not to mention, friendly people. Stockholm is a city known for its modern-meets-antique-glory charm, making it a great destination for families and adventurous couples. Out of all the wonderful things I saw and experienced, I definitely tried my best to choose the 5 best places to visit when you visit this beautiful city.

(Don't worry if you don't speak Swedish though, everyone in Stockholm speaks English, so you can leave your translation worries at home.)

3. Vasa Museum

The Vasa Museum is a maritime museum located in Djurgården, a 15-minute walk away from Skansen. Opened in 1990, the museum displays the only almost fully intact 17th-century ship that has ever been salvaged- the 64-gun warship Vasa, that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. In addition to seeing the magnificent vessel, the museum also has 10 smaller exhibits that showcase life aboard the ship. Today, the Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors a year.
