Djurgarden, Stockholm

I am a little behind on my blog because I am having a little too much fun in Åland but I have to tell you a bout a few cool places we went to in Djurgården, an island with lots of museums in Stockholm.
First, the Vasa Museet which hosts a ship wreck from 1628. It was salvaged in 1961 and reconstructed in the museum. Very impressive and a fascinating but also embarrassing story because this brand new ship sunk after sailing for only 20 minutes while everybody was watching. Beautiful ship, bad design. Then we had lunch at Rosendals Trädgård, wonderful gardens, greenhouse and café where you can take your lunch in the orchard and have a picnic. We also visited the Liljevalchs museum and enjoyed the work of a popular ceramic artist in Sweden, Hertha Hillfon. Next post, the Åland archipelago!
