This park includes a zoo where you can see wild animals such as reindeers, penguins, deer etc. this is a place where one can as well have barbecues and practice different sports.
Another important park is the Botanical Garden. This is considered as being one of the biggest and most important in the world. The entire city is full of bicycles and the Swedish people are very sensitive at this split – sidewalks for pedestrians, tracks for bicycles and road for cars. Overall, the entire city can be visited on a bike as there are a lot of areas where one can safely leave the bike. Choosing to go by car you must have a GPS on, as you can easily miss the destination.
