Top Ten Monuments in Sweden

I feel like I should make another list about my home country Sweden, honoring it. I've made a list of things Sweden is known for, birds in Sweden, foods from Sweden, and companies from Sweden. Now it's time to look at something more notable of Sweden, the monuments. So with that being said, here's the list. Oh yeah and Sweden's national day is on June 6th as well so we're like preparing for it. With that being said, here's the list.
The Top Ten
1 Ericsson Globe

Another Stockholm monument, although this time located on the mainland. It's the biggest known globe in the entire world and is usually home to concerts and ice hockey games. It represents the sun, in the Sweden Solar System which is the largest known solar system monument in the world.

2 Ale's Stones
3 Stockholm City Hall

This is probably the most iconic of the bunch. For the Swedish language course on the language learning app Duolingo, each course has a picture representing the country where the language is spoken, and for the Swedish language course, it's a drawing of the Stockholm City Hall. So, yes, it's quite significant.

It is located on the island of Kungsholmen in the beautiful city of Stockholm and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. It is mainly known for being the hub for the Nobel Prize banquet, as the banquets take place in the "Blue Hall" within this building. It's such an iconic building.

4 Drottningholm Palace

Known as the Versailles of the North, this is a palace in Sweden and the private home of the Swedish royal family. It looks gorgeous as well with its large garden and so on. This is somewhat like the Buckingham Palace of Sweden, except this one's not completely in the main city and instead located on an island with a large garden.

6 Gävle Goat

An annual monument in the central eastern city of Gävle located in Gästrikland. It's based on the "Yule goat," a traditional Christmas decoration which is basically a goat made of straw and is iconic for Swedish Christmas. Unfortunately, it is famous for vandalism, as people have damaged and burned down this monument about 37 times. Very iconic, though.

7 Uppsala Cathedral

The tallest cathedral in all of Scandinavia, let alone the Nordic region. I've been here a few times and it's amazing. It was built during the 13th to 14th century. The cathedral evokes a lot of nostalgia for me.

Wow! Very beautiful, and the architecture is incredible.

8 Turning Torso

Sweden's tallest building is Turning Torso in Malmö. It's also the tallest building in Scandinavia as a whole, which has made it very iconic not only for Sweden, but for Scandinavia as well. It's known for being very twisty, which adds to the iconic nature of the building. It had to be at least in the top three because of its iconic nature.

9 Öresund Bridge

This is the bridge that connects Sweden and Denmark through the cities of Malmö and Copenhagen. It technically belongs to Sweden, though, as the Danish part is really just an underwater tunnel, as the bridge kind of ends in the middle of the Öresund Strait.

10 Visby City Wall

A famous medieval wall that surrounds the city of Visby, it was used during the medieval period to protect the city from potential enemies.

The Contenders
11 Kalmar Castle

One of the creepiest castles in Sweden, located in Kalmar, on the east coast of southern Sweden. It is mainly known for being the place where the Kalmar Union was founded back in the 14th century, a union between Norway, and the rivalry of Sweden and Denmark.

Later, Sweden broke free from the union in the 16th century when Gustav Vasa fought against Danish King Christian II, or Christian the Tyrant, after he slaughtered many Swedes just before the independence.

12 Vasa Museum

A museum in Stockholm, famous for being the place where you can look at the historical Vasa ship, a ship that was meant to be used as a warship back in the 17th century, but it sank just twenty minutes after it left the harbor, due to not being built correctly.
