The Stockholm Card-Do I Need One?
Stockholm is a very interesting but rather costly capital. It’s always a serious challenge to enjoy all its attractions and sense the ambience of the city without spending a lot of money.
What benefits does the Card have.
During a short-term touristic visit to the capital, The Stockholm Card is the access to entertainment and nature exploration. To sum things up, the card::
- Provides you with free admittance to over eighty cultural objects where you have a great chance to broaden your outlook. Having the card, you get easy admission to tourist attraction site with no limitations. This means that you will not have to pay entrance fees in the museums as long as you hold the card; it will let you save decent money especially in case if you are going to visit at least several museums and tourist sites.
- Grants unlimited free access to all public transport – you can use buses, trains, trams and even boats without any need to pay!
- Lets you save money again by providing a discount for different city tours on a bus (including doubledecker) and for boat trips to the palace of Drottningholm and tickets to Cosmonova IMAX theatre.
How Long Does The Card Last?
The length of your visit is the most important factor helping choose the most reasonable plan – there are 1, 2, 3 or 5 days plans available. The automatic activation of the Stockholm Card occurs in the day of purchase and stays active until the chosen plan finishes.
How much does the Discount Card cost and where can one get it?
You can obtain the Stockholm Card in any information desk of the Swedish capital. The price is based on the number of days you are going to use the Card for – one-day use costs 525 SEK (Swedish Krona), two-day plan costs 675 SEK, three and five days plans cost 825 and 1095 SEK respectively.
It is actually possible that sometimes you can encounter some discounts – for instance, when signing up for the Membership card from Ikea. However, we do not recommend counting on it since basically the card price is not supposed to change throughout the whole year.
What is the best time to get the Card?
Visitors can get many pleasant advantages with the Stockholm Card. They will not have to pay entrance fee while enjoying exhibitions, museums and sightseeing – if you wish to have many such activities then purchasing the Card will allow you to reduce the costs of travel.
Stockholm has a large number of very interesting attractions that have no copies in the whole world. If you are an experienced tourist you know it perfectly.
But we are not going to exaggerate the practicality of the Stockholm City Card – we remember that this solution is developed mainly for the attraction fans. Those who prefers other activities in the Swedish capital like nightlife, business and walking tours will not need such a solution like the City Card.
Fortunately there are dozens of points in Stockholm where you can purchase the city card if you change your mind.
