The site covers 75 acres, including an impressive full replica of a 19th century Swedish town. The zoo contains a diverse collection of Scandinavian animals such as brown bear, moose, bison, red fox, reindeer, and even wolf. The site's central Bollnäs square is the venue for a popular Christmas market every year in early December. Skansen is quite a popular tourist destination, boasting of over 1.3 million visitors each year.

Liseberg - Liseberg, located in Gothenburg, is one of the most visited amusement parks in Scandinavia. One of its most noteworthy rides is the wooden roller coaster Balder, which was twice named the Best Wooden Tracked Roller Coaster in the world according to a major international poll.

How to get around within Sweden

The railway network in Sweden is extensive, but there are often significant delays and bikes generally are not allowed on most trains. Most of the Swedish cities have bike rental services and have excellent bicycle paths, although inter-city cycling should be undertaken only by experienced cyclists. Sweden has a number of bus lines that are cheaper than the train service. They also run more frequently and can reach areas that are not accessible by train, and are a good method of transportation for travelling short distances. Travellers can also call for taxi service by phone, wait for one in the taxi stands, or hail one off the street. Always check the yellow price sign before boarding a cab; taxi drivers are legally allowed to charge any price, provided it is stated on the sign.
