Take an hour to stroll by this waterfront area and cross bridges to take in the best views of Stockholm where you can see ask the islands from one spot.

A quick tour with the bicycle around the island. Nice to see all the weather, the boats, people on the other islands, etc.

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.

Just a short walk across the bridge from the Stockholm quay-side, Skeppsholmen comprises a pair of islands which are a joy to walk around, taking in the preserved historic buildings and ships, as well as the lovely hotel, hostel and restaurant. Don't miss the views across the water to the 'death defying' rides at the Gröna Lund amusement park!

Pretty, you can walk the whole area in 15 - 20 minutes. The waterfront has some old boats with signs with the boats' history.

This little island is crammed with art and architecture and great places to eat. Wander along the waters edge and look at the boats, balloons flying over the city and white swans negotiating the ferries.
