K&K’s Visit to Sigtuna, Sweden’s First City

I remember this day very vividly from last spring. It felt like I had literally spent my day in a hundred post cards – the kind of feeling you get when you are in a place too pretty to be true. The only time I remember feeling that way was back in 2012 on my visit to Stratford upon Avon, the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare.

Back in 2016, when we came to know we were leaving to Stockholm, I prepared a list of places that I must see and Skansen was one of those. However, on arriving here, when I read the reviews and enquired from people about Skansen, I got extremes of feedback – people either loved it or found it extremely boring. There was no in-between feeling!

Therefore, before I could drag my family along, I decided to visit Skansen with a friend. It was winter. Three forth of the displays were closed. But still… there was so much to fall in love. The place itself transported me back in time.  Continue reading “K&K’s Visit to Skansen – the First Open-air Museum & Zoo in Sweden”
