Skogskyrkogården, The Woodland Cemetary
Around All Saints’ Day, thousands of people visit the Woodland Cemetery (Skogskyrkogården) in Stockholm. The national holiday is celebrated with candles. Lots and lots of candles. Do not miss a visit to The Woodland Cemetery if you’re in Stockholm around November 3rd.

When The Woodland Cemetery, Skogskyrkogården, was founded at the beginning of the 1900s, the aim was to create something special, something original – a cemetery blending nature and architecture into a seamless whole.

Björn Ulvaeus, original ABBA member, at the press conference earlier today.

At last, ABBA the museum opens in Stockholm!

Björn Ulvaeus, member of the iconic 70’s pop group ABBA, announced at a press conference on Wednesday that ABBA The Museum will open in April/May 2013. The new museum will be integrated with the previously announced Swedish Music Hall of Fame on the island of Djurgården, Stockholm.

The great search for all things related to ABBA’s music, lyrics, stage costumes, musicals and films has gone on for quite some time. And Swedish Music Hall of Fame provides the perfect framework for it, says original ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus.

Stockholm is an eclectic blend of ultra-modern and medieval, offering everything from contemporary art and photography to the unique Vasa Museum, home of the 17th century Royal warship that sank on its maiden voyage.
