Went to the aquarium expecting to see a lot of sea-life (or generally aquatic) wonders. Well, aquatic animals you will find there but the aquarium is actually disappointingly small - barely a few exhibition rooms, a small cafe and an open terrace. Barely an hour's...More

I haven't been to many aquariums so I can't draw comparisons, but to me it was a great experience. Beautiful exhibits of amazing aquatic creatures. I do think the entrance fee of 120 SEK seems a bit too much for the size of the place,...More

extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of

located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as
