Christmas in the fairy tale
Stockholm has a unique place among all other European capitals. Winter Stockholm resembles a piece belonging to a fairytale world. Stockholm older part always looks great, but in winter it gains even more charm. You will be surprised with its look and with the market located there.
Bake your Christmas bread
Skansen can be found among the most memorable sites of Swedish capital. This well-known outdoor museum was built in 1891. All sorts of Swedish architecture can be seen here. Moreover, there are whole buildings not only preserved until now but still functioning! The most interesting things start in the evening of December, 24.
In December, for instance, they have a great Christmas market in Skansen. If you have a desire to explore the winter spirit in Swedish capital – come here. You are not feeling like purchasing souvenirs? OK, but what about baking your Christmas bread in the 19th century bakery? Looks quite challenging, doesn’t it?
Several hunderds of guests come to the market in Skansen every day. It means that you should be ready for a large crowd and have plenty of patience.
Shopping for everyone
You will become an inveterate shopping fan if you visit Stureplan square. Buying doesn’t have to be the best part of it. The biggest satisfaction is in walking around and choosing things. Stureplan should definitely be an important point of your Christmas Eve tour. There is no better attraction in Europe that has such a Scandinavian ambience.
If you are exhausted of shopping – check out a great skating rink situated not far away. It’s a well-known place where mainly foreign tourists spend time. That is why the rink is the most suitable place for making new acquaintances.
Spend your time with family
Visitors of all ages will appreciate the museums of the Swedish capital. However, there are also activities mainly oriented on families with little kids. Tourists like Stockholm circus so it would be great if you take your family there. They offer a large number of shows for the families. Don’t worry, the kids will not leave the circus disappointed! All kids appreciate exciting performances and they will love Stockholm circus.
Another pleasant thing is ferry. You can go for such a tour near the Opera and have a travel to one of small amusing islands. But please keep in mind that windiness is not good for that. You will see warm and thick buck skins on board for the people who are cold. When there is good weather in Stockholm a ferry tour is an ideal solution.
Fun for everyone
Let’s keep in mind that Stockholm is a Northern capital and sometimes it gets frosty there. Even if the air temperature looks OK the piercing wind can ruin all plans. When it got windy in the street it could be a sensible idea to spend time inside.
You may also go to the local escape rooms which are very popular among guests from all parts of the world. Check Questrooms, Exit Games and other spots like that. Experienced escape room fans can visit more than 2 dozens of places of that kind!
Afternoon and evening could be spent in the Royal Opera or the National Museum. Stockholm nightlife is one more great tourists’ attraction. There are tens of them in the center and in the Medieval town. As a matter of fact most of Stockholm pubs and bars could be compared to their European counterparts. Swedish capital is a rather expensive place, but you just must try the local beer. Nightlife in the Swedish capital is really fascinating. All you need to do is to go out and walk along the streets. You will find a nice bar or club very soon.
Picturesque view of the capital
Stockholm Sports Center looks like a very big ball. There is no other ball in the world larger than that. In addition, you could enjoy a great view from the Sports Center viewing platform. The platform revolves around the Center and rises up to 130 meters! The Stockholm view from there is really breathtaking.
