In the northern district of Djurgården stands the tallest manmade structure in Scandinavia -- a 152m-high (499-ft.) radio and television tower. The 1967 tower itself may be ugly, but, once you reach the top, the view of greater Stockholm is the best there is. Two elevators run to an observation platform, where you can see everything from the cobblestone streets of Gamla Stan (Old Town) to the city's modern concrete-and-glass structures and the archipelago beyond. A moderately priced restaurant that serves classic Swedish cuisine is on the 28th floor. (The view from the restaurant is better than the food.)
