Throughout history, Djurgården has been Stockholm's pleasure island. There was a time when only the king could enjoy this enormous green space. Today everyone comes here to breathe fresh air, visit the many museums, stroll through the forests and glades, get their pulses racing at the Gröna Lund amusement park, or just relax by the water. You can approach Djurgården from the water aboard the small ferries that leave from Slussen at the southern end of Gamla Stan. In summer, ferries also leave from Nybrokajen in front of Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern (the Royal Dramatic Theater).
