At Skansen, situated on the island of Djurgården in central Stockholm, visitors can stroll through five centuries of Swedish history, with a real sense of the past enhanced by the interaction with numerous living history guides in period costumes. “Skansen is something entirely genuine and a must-see for anyone visiting Stockholm,” says Kylliki Hellström, marketing manager at Skansen. “Here you can enjoy Swedish fika and meatballs, you can celebrate Midsummer together with all the locals, you can check out wild Nordic animals such as wolves, moose, lynxes, seals and more, and you get an authentic taste for what Sweden really is.”
