Talking about the most attractive capitals Stockholm comes to mind first. Winter Stockholm looks like a part of some fairytale reality. It’s known that the old part of Stockholm is much more amusing in winter than in summer. You will be surprised with its tremendous look and with the old market located there.

There is a worldwide known place in Stockholm called Skansen. Since 1891 Skansen has remained the most interesting open-air museum in Scandinavia. Connoisseurs of the local architecture will be satisfied. Moreover, there are buildings not only preserved but still working! You just should come in the last evening before Christmas and see yourself those amazing schools, forging shops and post offices.
Skansen is also a place of the Christmas marketplace in December. If you wish to feel the winter ambience of Swedish capital – come here. You are not feeling like purchasing anything? OK, but what do you think about baking Christmas bread in the bakery from 19th century? Looks quite challenging, doesn’t it?
Skansen market gathers several hundreds of visitors daily. Please, have patience and don’t go away from crowd and queues and you will sense the festive atmosphere.
Shopping for everyone
Stureplan square is an exciting touristic site with fantastic marketplace. People love strolling around and finding cool things. It’s really worth coming to Stureplan before Christmas. One will never find such a site with such a Scandinavian atmosphere in any other place of the planet.
After shopping you can go for ice-skating and have fun with your family. The rink visitors are usually foreigners. This is why the skating rink is an ideal place for making new acquaintances.
The Stockholm museums are interesting for both young and adult people. However, you can find certain “family attractions”. Foreigners love Stockholm circus so it would be fantastic if you take your family there. Every performance there is good for watching it with family. Your children will be thankful and happy, believe us! Family leisure should be spent in nice places like Stockholm circus.
Another pleasant thing is ferry. One can find a ferry near the Opera and join a fantastic tour around the see area. However, please remember that strong wind is not a suitable weather for taking sea tours. There are warm and thick buck skins on a ferry for those who are cold. But if the weather is nice and it’s not snowing you will enjoy really memorable views of winter Sweden.
Enjoy your time in Stockholm
Sweden is a Northern land and sometimes the weather gets really tough. Low temperature is typically not a big problem, but the penetrating wind is. Then it’s worth looking for some indoor activity.
Young travelers quite often recommend visiting Stockholm escape rooms saying their tremendous design and plot. Exit Games, Questrooms and other places are waiting for you. There are almost 3 dozens of such rooms in Stockholm!
Royal Opera and museums ideally suit for an afternoon or evening. The Stockholm bars are fantastic and you just must visit them. The old part of Stockholm is full of bars and clubs. Typically nightclubs in Stockholm look a lot like clubs in Europe. The prices could be quite high, but anyway local beer is worth tasting. Nightlife in the Swedish capital is really fantastic. Great clubs and bars can be found in any part of city center. It’s not a big deal to find a nice place to stay.
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. This building has another attraction besides its shape – there is an outstanding sightseeing desk there. You will see entire Stockholm at a plain sight from the height of 130 meters! The entire city will be in front of you.
Don’t think twice and choose Stockholm as your Christmas holidays destination!
