Djurgården is the garden island, or the Royal Game Park, and this is where many of Stockholm's museums, galleries, monuments and great buildings are found, including an amusement park and an open air museum.  Despite all that there's still large swathes of forest and meadow left for picnic-ers to enjoy when they 'pop over', possibly on their yachts, which they can park in one of the island's yacht harbours.  

The game park was established in the 16th Century and stocked with elk, deer and reindeer.  But there's none of that now.  The island's highlights are the Beckholmen historic dry docks, the Cirkus theatre, a heritage tramway, the art gallery Liljevalchs konsthall, the Rosendal Palace, a Nordic Museum, the Vasa Ship Museum, and Skansen, the world's largest open air museum.
