During our visit in Skansen, the Swedes were celebrating Midsummer. It is located on an island (Djurgården) in Stockholm. You can either ride a "water-taxi"or a cab to go there. The name "Skansen" has also been used as a noun to refer to other open-air museums and collections of historic structures.
It was my first time to see animals commonly found only in Scandinavian countries. What I enjoyed though was visiting the "town districts". It was really like walking through old Sweden during their pre-industrial era.
The Skansen is usually open 10:00am and closes usually at 11:00pm. You might need to a grab a map upon entering the place. You can also check their official website for official operating hours and schedule of events.
