Then, head to the park across from the Nordic Museum for tales of how the royals entertained, and how Djurgårdsstaden keeps the secrets of sailors and gravediggers.   Towards the end, you’ll see the Rosendals Trädgård, a green garden oasis not to be missed, followed by a palace with an open-air museum and art gallery. As the delightful walking tour comes to an end, leave the green heart of Stockholm with a feeling of having been let in on a secret and you’ll have gained insight into an area that most visitors simply do not experience.
