The rich and royal history of Sweden can bring any history lovers, travel lovers and bloggers to the Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and has a great and eminent history, which wove beautiful places and palaces. Walking through the streets of Stockholm, I tried to visualize the way it used to be years back, and the experience was overwhelming. There were different buildings right from centuries back till present showing how people, culture and time has changed everything.

Places to visit

The 14 islands in the city where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea give a completely different feel. The soothing breeze, pleasant weather and water around made me so joyous, it helped me revive my inner peace. I thought it was impossible to find such calm and elegant surroundings in present days, where everyone is running to earn money creating chaos in every city, but this place proved me wrong. In a concrete jungle I found stunning sunrise and sunset with water stream running in between. The view was breathtaking.

The Royal family’s Drottningholm Palace and Gardens were open to public, experiencing the lives of the royal people and wonder in the historic palace was outstanding. This baroque style palace has 3 museums and a library.

Vasa Museum is another splendid place I had been to, where all antiques are well preserved, 17th century warship, vasa, that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. Skansen an open air Swedish history museum showcase he lives of people and their history, with old buildings, people in costume and the zoo with Nordic animals. These different museums and palaces are the best places to visit and spend a vacation. This is one of the places I would love to visit again and again. It is like a living paradise.
