The Stockholm Card-Do I Need One?
Stockholm is an outstanding place, it has a lot of adventure and it is the best place for feeling nature at its best. The glory of Stockholm can be seen at every corner of the street, in museums and parks. Several Swedish cities have discount cards that are specifically designed for short term visitors. The Stockholm Card is the short cut to entertainment and great experiences while in Stockholm.
What benefits does the Card have.
While visiting Stockholm for a few days, The Stockholm Card is the access to funny activities and nature investigation. The card:
- Grants you free admission to over 80 cultural objects where you can explore to your fill. Having this card, you get access to different tourist spots without any restrictions. Therefore you will not need to pay entrance fees in the museums as long as you hold the card; it will let you save much money especially if you are going to visit at least several museums and tourist attraction sites.
- Allows you to travel for free by all Stockholm trams, trains, buses and even by boats! Forget about the tickets – you don’t need them!
- Guarantees discounted tickets for different points of interest and services such as the Stockholm Panorama sightseeing bus, the Double Decker Tour bus tour, Boat routes to Drottningholm palace and to Cosmonova IMAX theatre.
How Long Does The Card Last?
The Stockholm card is valid for 5 days after the purchase day or for different number of days based on for how long you stay and which price plan you have chosen. There are several plans available – one day, two days, three days and five days.
How much does the Stockholm Card cost and where can I buy it?
The price depends on the chosen package – 525 SEK (Swedish Krona) is for the one-day plan, 675 SEK is the cost of the two-day plan, 825 and 1095 SEK are the prices for three and five-days plans. Every tourist can easily and quickly buy the Card in any information service center in Stockholm.
It is possible that sometimes you can find some discount offers – for example, when getting the Membership card from Ikea. Nevertheless, we do not suggest relying on it because actually the card price does not change throughout the whole year.
What is the best time to buy the Card?
Firstly, the Stockholm Card is basically recommended for the tourists who came to Stockholm to enjoy the sightseeing. They will then avoid paying those annoying entrance fees and save some money. Buying the Card pays itself if your stay lasts for few days but is full of events.
Don’t pass up a good opportunity to make your short visit to Stockholm full of new and interesting information. You can calculate everything yourself using all information concerning fees and prices on the web. You will then see that the pluses are obvious.
However, if sightseeing and other cultural activities are not in your schedule there is hardly any sense in getting the Stockholm Card. The same thing can be said to the people who prefer discovering and enjoying Swedish capital by leisurely walking the streets and get acquainted with local people.
Luckily there are dozens of spots in Stockholm where you can buy the card in case if you change your mind.
