No really need to sell this. It is an amazing well persevered war ship from the 1600s. English tours are regularly available and included with admission. Well worth a visit. One of the highlights in Stockholm.

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland
extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of

located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as

You simply take the FERRY 82 from the station SLUSSEN. If you have a tourist travel card for public transport, you don't have to pay.
