Free tours around Stockholm
Stockholm is a capital staying on 14 islands and connected with almost 60 bridges. However, Swedish capital is often called to be “World Smallest Large City”. The issue is that in spite of big population Stockholm is a close-together city. It is a bit narrow and suitable for going on foot.
According to the foreign tourists’ point of view, the best way is to choose a walking tour. Free walking tours in Stockholm are like a big magnet for inveterate walking tours fans. A tourists-friendly design of the city makes every tour remarkable and fascinating.
Walking is certainly the best possible way to explore the capital of Sweden. Each building in each street have their interesting history. If you want some inspiration you can begin with, let’s say, Riddarholmen Church or the Great Hall. Very soon you will see how great the local historical and cultural heritage is.
You will definitely be very surprised with Stockholm subway look. Almost every station is different and wonderful. Some tourists purchase a day ticket and consequently travel one by one station and finally see them all. As a matter of fact the majority of walking tours include metro stations.
Plan your route
There is a stereotype that a tourist should plan a trip to a new place. People usually find something incredible when they don’t plan it. Therefore here in Stockholm it can be more sensible to go for a free walking tour than to pay for a package one.
For example, it is a good idea to spend whole day in the Royal National park. It is hardly possible when you are on a bus tour around the capital. The park is incredibly calm and charming. If you want to reflect upon something – just do it here.
Do you have an idea what shows the glory of Stockholm better? There are seventy interesting museums open for all tourists. Everybody will be able to find something attractive particularly to him. History, arts, weapons, culture and many other topics will definitely amuse you.
Relax and get fun
The right time of your travel to Stockholm can provide a whole lot of surprising things. Could you ever think that Swedish Easter is similar to “trick or treat” game? Please, be aware that Swedish kids look like small nasty creatures going from door to door asking for candies. That is probably the most untypical Easter celebration.
Another nice great to understand Sweden better is to go for a crayfish party. This drinking and eating feast is held in August. People in Sweden love it and happily gather and socialize. That’s a great opportunity to make new friends among Stockholm inhabitants and get new impressions.
No plan is needed
Finally, the main aim of any travel is making people satisfied and happy. Clubs, theaters, museums – each of us likes something more and something less. Don’t make yourself bored going to the places you are not really interested in. It’s your travel and it’s up to you what to do. Come to the Swedish capital and enjoy your time!
