For a one-day excursion, it is enough to choose one or two museums that are most suitable for your interests:

  • National Museum of Sweden, which has collected tens of thousands of paintings and works of applied art. In its halls there are works by Rembrandt and Watteau, and the exposition was founded in the 16th century.
  • Museum of Contemporary Art with masterpieces by Dali and Picasso.
  • Museum on a battleship of the 17th century.
  • Museum of Transport with exhibits dating back more than one hundred years «behind shoulders».
  • ABBA Museum and Museum of Music for Music Lovers.
  • Nobel Museum, where you can find out the truth about why the famous prize is not awarded to mathematicians.

A visit to the chosen museum should be preceded by a walk through old Stockholm, one day in which can be a reason to return to the northern city again and again.

Small island of great monuments

The center of Stockholm is the old district of Gamlastan, spread out on a small island. The main attraction of the center is the Royal Palace, where the residence of Swedish monarchs has been located since the end of the 17th century. The oldest building in the old city is the Riddarholm Church, which was erected here in the 13th century. The deceased monarchs traditionally found peace in it, and the Franciscan monks founded the temple. The tower of the church is clearly visible from many districts of Stockholm, and inside it are the coats of arms of the Knights of the Order of the Seraphim. This award is presented for service to the king and the state and for the display of special valor and is the highest honor of the kingdom..
The facade of the Cathedral of Stockholm, the Church of St. Nicholas, is also facing the Royal Square. Its construction began in the XIII century and the temple is a magnificent example of the neo-Gothic style in architecture. Until the middle of the 19th century, the coronation ceremony of Swedish monarchs took place within the walls of the cathedral, and today one of the main local relics is a copy of the oldest image of Stockholm, created in 1632 to replace the earlier lost one..
