Visit Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, a city suitable for a family vacation no less than Paris, London or Barcelona. It is a beautiful, vibrant and wonderfully green city, spread over 14 islands in the North Sea. The cool weather and the long daylight hours make it a perfect summer destination. The reliable, very safe and very convenient public transportation, which combines buses, subways, trams and ships, also makes the city a convenient family destination.
Not to be missed: A tour of Gamla Stan - an ancient medieval town with ancient and cobbled alleys, ancient and impressive houses, art galleries, shops, restaurants and cafes. Gamla Stan is also home to the Royal Palace, which has hundreds of rooms that allow a glimpse into the life of the Swedish royal family in days gone by, alongside the vault room where crowns and wands are stored, and the armory where you can be impressed by a collection of antique weapons and armor. Some other experiences not to be missed, on a family visit in general, are observing the city from above (there are several places that allow this, for example the tower of the town hall) and sailing between the islands of which the city is composed.
Stockholm excels in a particularly wide range of fine museums, some of which are especially suitable for a family visit, such as the Skansen Open Air Museum offering a glimpse into former rural Sweden, the Natural History Museum which also has the IMAX Cinema and Planetarium, the Museum of Science and Technology, the Museum of Music, The toys, a museum and a vase dedicated to the battleship a vase and more. The city has other attractions that are especially suitable for children, such as the impressive aquarium, the butterfly incubator, the world of Astrid Lindgren - a charming playground dedicated to the beloved Swedish children's author, Bilby Books and more.
Must not forget the old and successful amusement park Gruna Lund, the local version of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. After all this one can rest in the many parks and green gardens scattered throughout the city.
