Skansen

The next place you should visit when you go to Stockholm is Skansen.  Christian said that this was Sweden’s version of Colonial Williamsburg…I was sold!  Traditional Swedish buildings and farms from all over Sweden were moved & reassembled on this 75 acre land/museum.  The people that work here are dressed in the traditional clothing of that time & are performing tasks that are typical of a farmer, goldsmith, baker, etc.  You could spend hours here visiting all the buildings and they even have a zoo.  This was our last stop in Stockholm.
