What if you had the power to travel back in time and live in a Nordic city 300 years ago? Meeting people from 1720s and watching them go about their everyday life, from baking bread, preparing medicines and manufacturing shoes.
Well, now you can. Skansen is the time machine which I was looking for. It’s the only open-air museum in the world right in the centre of Stockholm. Skansen showcases the colourful historical traditions of Sweden from 1700 till the present day. The best part of the museum is that we feel teleported into history, with people dressed in traditional attire working on their daily chores in buildings that resemble the ancient architecture.
The entry fee is quite pricy for a student (120kr). However, THS organises events to Skansen which allows free entry for students who are a member of the student union.
Here is a photoblog of my time travel to Sweden in 1700.
