The Skansen Museum is a miniature model of the medieval Stockholm. 150 houses and other buildings were transported here from the different parts of the country, most of them built in the 17th, 18th and 19th century.
You can see old houses, a wonderful wooden church and manor houses. You can learn about traditional crafts and see a pottery, a bakery, a glass blowing workshop and other amazing things. Also, guides and caretakers wear traditional Swedish costumes, which makes the whole thing even more realistic. They also celebrate Midsummer and Walpurgis Night with special festivals!!!
There are some nice restaurants and charming cafes and in the museum shop you can buy some traditional handicrafts as souvenirs, even if these are not very cheap.
The zoo is also great, there is a section for the animal native in Scandinavia, but there is also a monkey house, a terrarium and children's zoo.
The Skansen is the favorite of both the tourists and the locals, so there are always many people, but the place is so pleasant that you won't even notice a little crowd.
Adults 110 SEK (about 10 Euros)
Children 50 SEK (about 5 Euros)
