Stockholm has an especial place among all other world capitals. Snowy winter makes the capital of Sweden an incredibly fabulous town. Stockholm older part looks great all the time, but in winter it becomes incredibly charming. You will be surprised with its look and with the market located there.
Turn into a baker
Skansen can be found among the most remarkable sites of Swedish capital. It is a very large open-air museum founded in 1891. You could find all types of Swedish architecture there. One more cool thing is that you can get inside of most of the old buildings. The most interesting events start in the evening of December, 24.
In December, for example, they hold a great Christmas market in Skansen. If you have a desire to feel the winter spirit in Stockholm – come here. You don’t need to buy anything if you don’t want to. You could try to bake a fresh bread instead. Looks challenging, doesn’t it?
Christmas market in Skansen traditionally gathers thousands of tourists. Therefore you should be ready for a lot of people and be patient.
Shopping for non-shoppers
Stureplan square is an exciting touristic site with fabulous local market. People love walking around and watching cool things. It’s really a great plan to go to to Stureplan on Christmas Eve. One will hardly find such a place with such a Scandinavian atmosphere in any other place of the planet.
If you are exhausted of shopping – check out a great skate-rink located not far from the market. Foreign guests like that ice-skating spot and regularly go there. So if you want to meet new people it’s going to be an ideal place for that.
Undoubtedly, museums of Stockholm are a great leisure solution for both adults and children. But there are also places created for parents and kids. Stockholm circus would be a great choice.

Ferry trips are exciting too. They start near the Opera building and pass the small islands. But please remember that windy weather is not good for water tours.
