Free tours around Stockholm
Stockholm is a Northern Venice located on fourteen islands. From the other hand, Swedish capital is often called “World Smallest Big City”. The reason is that the Swedish capital is not spread around like the most of big cities. It is a bit narrow and thus suitable for going on foot.

Another attraction is the Stockholm subway. All stations are incredibly beautiful and different. We suggest you trying to visit all of them and don’t even hesitate to buy a 24-hours ticket. It is very easy to find a free Stockholm tour which includes the metro stations.
Plan your route
There is an annoying stereotype that you should make a detailed plan of a trip to another place. People often find something incredible spontaneously. The conclusion is that buying a tour that looks interesting you are not guaranteed to see everything.
For example, it could be a good idea to spend whole day in beautiful Royal National park. A package tour will hardly let you stay there for long. There is a unique meditative ambience there. Tourists like to go there alone to think and to rest.

Sometimes people forget that the goal of any travel is pleasure. All of us prefer different ways to spend time – some go to a club, while the others can do something else. Don’t make yourself bored going to the places you are not really interested in. Do what you want and don’t look at others. The more relaxed you are the more great things in Stockholm you will see!
