We were here in the early fall, so there is no telling what the summertime brings, but this place is a beautiful oasis within walking distance from the old city. Home to the expectedly off-beat Modern.

Its like a different world here the peace is wonderful. Easy access walking in or bus 65 or the Ferry from... More

We walked to Skeppsholmen from Gamla Stan. The walk is not too far and it was very enjoyable. We had a great time walking around the island and viewing the Stockholm waterfronts.

Skeppsholmen houses the Moderna Museum and several other museums well worth your time. The area is ideal for a stroll along the water and offers stunning views of the Stockholm harbor.

In the center of Stockholm the two beautiful islands of Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen is located, and as the Swedish names suggest both has a marine ancestry. On Skeppsholmen you'll find the beautiful ship - today a youth hostel - af Schapman, built in the late 20th century. There are also several museums on Skeppsholmen, such as the East Asian museum...

It was a nice place for a quiet walk. I don't know if it was because we were there on a Sunday, but the place was dead. It looked like everything was closed. There's some weird art, well manicured lawns and a bunch of buildings.
