Top Ten Monuments in SwedenI 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.
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. It represents the sun, in the Sweden Solar System which is the largest known solar system monument in the world.
This is probably the most iconic of the bunch. I mean, for the swedish language course on the language learning app of Duolingo, you see, each course has a pic representing a country where the language is spoken, and for the swedish language course, it's a drawing of the Stockholm city hall. So yeah. It's located on the island of Kungsholmen in the beautiful city of Stockholm, and is one of the biggest tourist attractions to this city. Mainly known for being the hub for the nobel prize banquete, as the banquetes take place in the "Blue Hall" in this building. It's such an iconic building.
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 kinda 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.
An annual monument in the centraleastern 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. It is unfortunately famous for vandalism, as people have damaged and burned down this monument about 37 times. Very iconic though.
The tallest cathedral in all of Scandinavia, let alone the nordic. I've been here a few times and it's amazing. It was built during the 13th to 14th century. The cathedral wakes up a lot of nostalgia for me
Wow! Very beautiful and the architecture is incredible.
Sweden's tallest building is Turning Torso in Malmö. It's also the tallest building in Scandinavia as whole, which has made it very iconic not only for Sweden, but scandinavia as well. It's known for being very twisty, which adds up to the iconicness of the building. It had to be at least in the top three because of its iconicness.
That looks pretty cool.
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 kinda ends in the middle of the öresund strait.
A famous medieval wall that surrounds the city of Visby, it was used during the medieval to protect the city from potential enemies.
One of the creepiest castles in Sweden, located in Kalmar, on the east coast of southern Sweden. 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 though in the 16th century when Gustav Vasa fought against danish king Christian II, (or Christian The Tyrann, after he slaughtered tons of swedes just before the independence).
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 war ship back in the 17th century, but it sank just twenty minutes after it left the harbour, due to not being built correctly.
It's a fun place
