STOCKHOLM - A CITY THAT IS SIMPLE TO ENJOY

Experience the Scandinavian cosmopolitan capital with 700 year old secrets

Stockholm is a truly vibrant city with style in its genes. It is the best place to experience the beauty, simplicity and functionality of Scandinavian design. The main advantage of the city is that it’s small enough to easily get around on foot or by its efficient public transportation system. That's why most of the tours in Sweden's capital do not include transportation. Don't worry, walking Stockholm streets is enjoyable and will not affect the number of sights you'll explore. Besides, taking a Metro ride in Stockholm is an incredible cultural experience as it is called the world's biggest underground art museum.

The Old Town with its cobblestone streets, narrow alleys and old buildings is an absolute 'must see' on any Stockholm tour. This extremely charming place with 700 years of history has been the number one tourist attraction. As for shopping, you can start your shopping tour from abundant vintage boutiques, Scandinavian design stores and of course the local H&M. And then it is time for coffee! In Sweden a coffee drinking pause is called fika and is much more than just a coffee break, it’s an opportunity to catch up with friends sharing coffee and a piece of Swedish cake in numerous cozy cafes or 6 beautiful city parks.

Like in most cities located on the waterfront, boat tours are a mandatory. You can discover thousands of small islands in the Stockholm archipelago tour and it's simply breathtaking. The waterways of Stockholm are not only for looking at beautiful sights - you can also take a swim right in the center of the city.

Recommended cultural and educational experiences:
  • ABBA Museum
  • Vasa Museum
  • The Swedish History Museum
  • Hallwyl Museum
  • Fotografiska
Stockholm can also be proud of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Royal Palace Drottningholm (open to public) which is sometimes compared to Versailles and the magical Skogskyrkogården, or Woodland Cemetery. And finally, it is amazing how much nature surrounds this city. We recommend you renting a bike and cycling out of the city to the outskirts of Stockholm.
