Free tours around Stockholm
Almost sixty bridges and 14 islands give Stockholm the name of a Northern Venice. However, the capital of Sweden has the name “big but small” among tourists. The reason is that the Swedish capital is not stretched around like the most of modern cities. Therefore Stockholm is a really convenient place to have a walking tour.
Travel on foot
As you have probably guessed walking is a popular way to investigate Stockholm. A lot of people come for free walking tour around Stockholm every day. The classical city design provides an endless number of opportunities for everybody.
Bus tours will not let you feel the Stockholm atmosphere, but tours on foot will. You will see points of interest literally on the whole way. Riddarholmen Church or the Great Hall could be nice points to start. You will come to the conclusion that Stockholm cultural and historical background is simply spanless.
The tourists are highly surprised with the local subway. Tourists often emphasize that each station is a masterpiece. We suggest you trying to visit them all and don’t even hesitate to pay for a 24-hours ticket. Subway stations can be found in almost all walking tours.
Create your own route
Creating a detailed plan is not an obligatory thing when coming to Stockholm. On practice it regularly appears that there is not that much sense in it. It means that buying a tour that looks nice no one guarantees you see all great things.
For instance, it is a great idea to spend whole day in beautiful Royal National park. A group tour will hardly allow you to stay there for several hours. The park is incredibly charming and calm. It is the most comfortable place of Stockholm for spending time with family or in solitude.
Have you heard that Stockholm is a cultural capital as well? There are 70 exciting museums available for all tourists. There are dozens of museums devoted to different things.
Time for fun
The right time of a visit to Stockholm can bring a whole lot of surprising things. For example, you have hardly imagined that local kids and teenagers can dress up just like for Halloween and ask for sweets and candies on Easter. One will rather not find a more strange way to spend Easter when he sees Swedish children dressed like Halloween monsters.
A crayfish party is another great event that tourists like in Sweden. Those who have a desire to visit this great feast should come in August. Such a crayfish festival would be an awesome opportunity for you to know locals better. That’s a great opportunity to make new friends among Stockholm people and get new impressions.
Come and enjoy
From time to time people forget that the main goal of any trip is pleasure. Some people entertain in clubs and bars, while others like visiting museums and finally the rest prefers something different. 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!
