Get to know the various inhabitants of the North — both the human and animal varieties — without leaving the city at Skansen, the world's oldest open-air museum, founded in 1891.
The 300,000-square meter exhibition includes a zoo filled with a variety of Nordic fauna; an aquarium with 200 exotic species; and models of a 19th-century town and traditional Sami camp.
Bring your little ones to meet Skansen's little ones in the children's zoo or learn how to run a farm. No matter the time of year, there is some festival being celebrated, be it New Year's Eve fireworks or Walpurgis Night bonfires signaling the return of spring.
