A fantastic Sunday afternoon was spent at Skansen, we took the number 7 tram from the city centre and missed all the traffic there and back, it dropped us right at the entrance.
We paid to get in, a very reasonable entrance charge for what you get, then headed to the Colobus monkey area, where they were being fed. Plenty of space to see for adults and kids alike.
We then wandered around the park, loads of fascinating old, original buildings from Sweden's history giving an insight of how life was a hundred plus years ago.
There were some large enclosures where we saw brown bears, wolves, elks, bison, wolverines etc. The bears in particular were very playful and you are pretty much guaranteed to get a good view of them.
The park itself is quite hilly, so could be an issue if you are elderly or with a buggy, however this didn't affect my personal visit, so I won't deduct marks for this.
If you come to Sweden, you simply have to spend the time and visit Skansen. You will not regret it!
