Christmas in Stockholm
Stockholm has a unique reputation among all other world capitals. In the winter time it looks like a storybook town due to clean and neat streets and decorated building. By some reason the old part of Stockholm is much more attractive in winter than in summer. Maybe it is due to that fabulous spirit that presents in the old market.
Bake your Christmas bread
Skansen can be found among the most memorable points of interest of Stockholm. It is a very big outdoor museum founded long ago in 1891. Connoisseurs of the local architecture will be happy. Furthermore, there are buildings not only preserved but still working! The most exciting things begin in the evening of December, 24.
It the late December they hold a nice Christmas market in Skansen. If you wish to feel the winter spirit of Stockholm – come here. You don’t have to buy anything if you don’t like shopping. You could try to bake a tasty fresh bread instead. Challenging enough, isn’t it?
Skansen market attracts several hundreds of visitors daily. Patience will save you a lot of energy here since there will probably be queues and crowd, although it’s still worth coming.
Shopping for non-shoppers
Stureplan square is an amusing place with outstanding market. Some say that the whole pleasure is not about the things you buy but to the shopping itself. Stureplan should certainly be visited during your Christmas holidays. There is no other attraction in the whole world which preserves such a Scandinavian ambience.
Ice-skating is a good solution after shopping, the skating spot is quite near to Stureplan. The skating rink visitors are typically foreigners. That is why the skating rink is an ideal place for striking up new acquaintances.
Without a doubt, museums of Stockholm are a nice choice for kids and adults. But there are many attractions made specifically for kids and parents. Stockholm circus could be a great choice. Each show there is suitable for watching it with family. Don’t worry, your kids will not be disappointed! Children like breathtaking shows and they will love Stockholm circus.
One more pleasant thing is ferry. They start near Opera and go through the small islands. But please keep in mind that windiness is not favorable for water tours. They offer buck skin to all tourists, so don’t be modest and ask any of the employees about that. When there is fine weather in Stockholm a ferry trip is an ideal solution.
Have fun in Stockholm!
Let’s remember that Stockholm is a Northern capital and sometimes it gets cold there. Even if the temperature seems to be OK the wind can ruin everything. When it got windy outside it could be a reasonable idea to spend time inside.
You could also check out the local attractions called rooms that are really popular among guests from all parts of the world. Exit Games, Questrooms and lots of other escape rooms are at your service. There are more than 30 attractions of that type in Stockholm!
Royal Opera and museums are great for an afternoon or evening. At night it’s a great idea to spend time in a local bar. There are dozens of them in the city center and in the Medieval town. As a matter of fact the majority of Stockholm pubs can be compared to their European counterparts. Swedish beer is incredibly specific and is worth trying regardless of the price. Stockholm nightlife is very active. All you need to do is to go out and walk along the streets. Everyone will quickly and easily find a cool place.
See the whole globe from the Globe
Stockholm Sports Center looks like a very big ball. Actually, it’s the biggest ball in the world. This building has another attraction besides its shape – there is an outstanding sightseeing desk there. The revolving deck moves around the Center and gets to the height of 130 meters! The entire city will be in front of you.
Don’t miss the Christmas Eve in Stockholm, it’s really worth coming here!
