Christmas in the fairy tale
Talking about the most interesting capitals of Europe Stockholm comes to mind first. In the winter time it looks like a fantasy town with all those neat and clean streets and decorated buildings all along the streets. Stockholm Old Town looks great all the time, however in winter it becomes incredibly charming. It has its own inimitable spirit with the handmade souvenirs, market, tasty chestnuts and of course, glogg.
Turn into a baker
As for the Stockholm attractions we’d like to mention Skansen. Since 1891 Skansen has remained the most amusing open-air museum in entire Scandinavia. All kinds of local architecture are presented here. Furthermore, there are buildings not only preserved but still working! You just need to come in the last evening before Christmas and see yourself those amazing schools, forging shops and post offices.
It the second half of December they hold a great Christmas market in Skansen. All people who want to learn what “Stockholm tourism” is like should definitely visit it. You are not feeling like buying souvenirs? OK, but what do you think about baking Christmas bread in the 19th century bakery? Looks challenging, doesn’t it?
Christmas market in Skansen museum traditionally gathers a great number of tourists. Patience will save you a lot of energy here since there will probably be a crowd, although it’s still worth coming.
Shopping for everyone
Stureplan square in Stockholm will touch your feelings even if you are an inveterate non-shopper. Some say that the pleasure is related not to the souvenirs you buy but to the process itself. Stureplan should be an important point in your Christmas Eve route. One will hardly find such a place with such a Scandinavian spirit in any other place of the world.
Ice-skating is a great thing after shopping, the rink is not fat from Stureplan. Foreign guests like that skating rink and quite often go there. It makes the skating rink a perfect place for getting to know new people.
The museums of the Swedish capital are definitely great for both young and adult people. All in all, there are certain attractions made specifically for parents and kids. Stockholm circus could be a great choice. Every performance there perfectly suits for spending time with family. Your children will have really much fun! Stockholm circus is a brilliant place for any tour with family.
Ferry trips are exciting too. One can find a ferry just near the Opera and go for a fantastic tour around the see area. But please don’t forget that blowing weather is not favorable for water tours. They offer buck skin to everyone, so don’t be modest and ask any of the employees about that. You can enjoy splendid views from the ferry if the weather is nice.
Have fun in Stockholm!
Sweden is a Northern country and sometimes the weather gets really tough. Even if it’s 0C a biting local wind can make it feel like -15C or colder. When it got windy outside it can be a sensible idea to stay at home.
Young travelers and just the enthusiasts who love suspense will definitely appreciate local escape rooms. There are many different escape rooms and one may find them online. There are almost 3 dozens of those rooms here in Stockholm!
Evening or afternoon could be spent in the National Museum or the Royal Opera. At night it will be an awesome decision to spend time in a bar. The old part of Stockholm is full of bars and clubs. Stockholm bars and clubs look nearly the same like in the rest of Europe. The prices could seem rather high, however Swedish beer is brilliant. Stormy nightlife is another remarkable thing of the capital of Sweden. City center is full of awesome nightclubs, pubs and bars. Everyone will quickly and easily find a cool place.
Enjoy a great view of Stockholm
Stockholm Sports Center looks like a very big ball. Check out the largest ball in the world. It makes it a very interesting place to visit especially because it has an outstanding viewing point. The platform revolves around the Center and rises up to 130 meters! Entire Stockholm will be seen in plain sight.
Don’t miss the Christmas Eve in Stockholm, it’s really worth coming here!
