Gröna Lund or "Grönan" as it is also called is Sweden's oldest amusement park and it is located on Djurgården in Stockholm. Located very beautiful by the water. Here you go to go carousels, roller coaster rides, eat nice food and even dance and listen to music. The amusement park is fun for both old and young.

Gröna LundHistory

In 1883 Tivoli opened Gröna Lund. The idea of opening an amusement park in Stockholm just on Djurgården came from Jacob Schultheis. He came from Germany and had already been to Gothenburg and earlier have had different amusment activities there. But after complaints and other reasons, he closed his business and went to Stockholm. Here he hired the land where Gröna Lund is situated. It started as a small tivoli but today it is a big fun field.

During the 19th century it was quite common with small tivoli little anywhere in Stockholm. These were places to suit everyone who would like to dance, variety, carousels and eat good food. It became a bit of a escape from the rather heavy everyday life.
But when the city's inhabitants increased, land needed to build more housing and in 1901 only Gröna Lund remained as a tivoli.

Gröna Lunds Rides
As in all amusement parks, there are lots of different rides. Gröna Lund renews its attractions continually, but some old ones remain and are a bit popular today as ex. Lustiga Huset, The Love Tunnel and the Circus Carousel from 1892. But for those who want a bit more breathtaking, fast-paced and squeaky-feeling, you can get on the slightly more recent attractions like Eclipse, the world's highest sledge swing at 121 meters altitude, Free Fall, Insane, Jetline and Twister and Ikaros.
