The island of Djurgården is to Stockholm what Central Park is to New York City: a beloved public green space in the heart of the city. It’s home to some key tourist attractions, but is well worth exploring for its own sake. There are miles of footpaths, bicycle trails, and even bridle ways. You feel like you’re deep in the Swedish countryside, despite being walking a short distance from the city center.
