Stockholm Attractions

With a wide array of activities and Stockholm attractions, you’ll never have to search far for something to do on your next visit.  The best way to enjoy the city is on foot or by taking the inner-city boats that take you everywhere you want to go. 

Cathedrals and Churches
Of the popular Stockholm attractions, everyone loves to visit the Stockholm Cathedral (Storkyrkan).  It’s the most ancient church in the city and it’s located in the oldest section of town.  It dates back to the 13th century and boasts a magnificent refurbished baroque style exterior.  Today it’s the center of the Swedish Church.  Visitors can appreciate its beauty and the two most impressive works housed inside.  One of them is the statue of St. George.  It’s made of wood and was made in the late 1400s.  The second is the oldest portrait of Stockholm.  They’re both a must see among the list of unique Stockholm attractions.   

Another lovely place to visit is the Riddarholmen Church.  It’s the sole surviving Medieval Abbey and truly mesmerizing.  Its design dates to the latter part of the 14th century.  Important Swedish governmental figures have been laid to rest at this site. 

Museums
You won’t believe the number of museums in the city.  By far the most visited of Stockholm attractions is the National Museum.  Tourists can browse through long galleries exhibiting masterpieces by Rembrandt, Rubens, Renoir and Degas to name a few.  There is also a gallery displaying the works of famous Swedish artists.  The building’s 19th century architecture is just as impressive.

And if you enjoy history, you’ll want to make a beeline for the Museum of National Antiquities.  Everything showcased tells the story of Stockholm from the Stone Age to the days of the Vikings.  If you have time to browse through the Gold Room you’ll marvel in the collection of artifacts from the Bronze Age all the way through the 16th Century.  It’s definitely one of the most interesting Stockholm attractions. 

Vasa Museum will impress those who enjoy seeing one-of-a-kind items.  And here you’ll have the opportunity to see a war ship built in 1628.  It’s the only one ever made.  It’s perhaps the most original of all the Stockholm attractions. 

Landmarks and Icons
It’s said that there’s no palace in Europe as impressive as the Drottningholm Palace & Theater.  It’s the residence of the current royal family of Sweden and a must see among Stockholm attractions. 
Allow time to stroll through the state apartments.  They’re exquisitely designed and feature ornate painted ceilings, gold chandeliers and Chinese vases.  The theater is still in use today for special performances during the summer.  And if you walk through the gardens you’ll enjoy the pools, fountains, avenues of lime trees and a bronze statue of Hercules.  It’s the work of celebrated masters of architecture from the 17th century. 

You don’t want to miss the Stockholm Public Library either.  It’s a cylindrical shaped structure with spectacular 360 degree interiors. 
It’s not only an architectural wonder but an outstanding Stockholm attraction.
