This island is situated between Södermalm and Östermalm. It contains
most of Stockholm´s many
museums, beautiful nature and Stockholm´s largest amusement park, Gröna Lund(Green Grove) a
nd the largest zoo, the famous Skansen. In 2003 I visited 2 of the museums: Wasa and
Aquaria. On Djurgården, there is almost no traffic and it is trafficated by some of Stockholm´s

Gröna Lund, Stockholm´s famous amusement park is not large, but features Europe´s tallest drop-tower (about 80m).
The Vasa museum as seen from the ferry going to Skeppsholmen from Djurgården. I visited this museum
and watched Gustav Vasa´s legendaric ship that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 and was saved in the
Aquaria museum, the tropical aquarium we visited, featuring strange fishes, sharks and an artificial rain forest.
The aquarium is unfortunately very small compared to others in the world.
