Green spaces in Stockholm
While the nights are getting longer in Stockholm, academy winner Anna-Lena uses the last rays of sunshine to visit parks in Stockholm. One of her favorites: the woodland cemetery Skogskyrkogården in the south of the city centre.
The days in Stockholm are getting shorter and shorter: I nevertheless try to take advantage of the sunny weather we have been having lately to continue my tour between land and water. This time, I decided that I wanted to explore the outdoor space because one of the first things I noticed upon arriving in Stockholm was that it is extremely green.
There are numerous promenades and outdoor spaces in the city, with impressive rows of trees or water features and a lot of high-quality recreational spaces. Some important examples of city parks include: Kungsträdgården, Humlegarden, and Vasaparken as well as the large, classic boulevard: Karlavägen. These places are not just beautiful during the summer period, but also during the Christmas season: with their decorations of many lights, these places radiate a special charm.
The island of Djurgarden
Besides the more planned parks, there is even a lot of more natural parkland in the city, such as the island of Djurgarden. The 279-hectare island has a beautiful landscape, lots of forest areas and is known for its great museums. I especially like the typical Swiss villas on the island. All this can be discovered wonderfully during a Sunday walk and is very popular with tourists and locals alike.
