What the Stockholm Card Offers.
The Stockholm Card is the most attractive option for short term tourism and for those who are curious about cultural life of the capital, since it:
- Offers you free access to over eighty touristic spots where you have a great chance to broaden your mind. Having the card, you get easy access to different tourist spots without any limitations.

- Offers attractive discounts for different sightseeing routes arranged on buses and boats as well as for visiting Cosmonova IMAX theatre.
How Long Will The Card Last?
The duration of your visit is the most significant factor determining the best plan – there are 1, 2, 3 or 5 days plans available. The automatic activation of the Stockholm Card happens in the day of purchase and remains active until the chosen plan ends.
How much does the Card cost and where to buy it?
The price solution is very fair and transparent – you pay correspondingly for the number of days that he or she spends in Stockholm. There are discount cards for 1, 2, 3 and 5 days – take any that matches better.
The card price remains unchanged during the year. At the same time, there are discounts on occasional basis. Ikea, for instance, gives out discount codes to customers who obtain the Ikea Family membership card.
Who could benefit from the Stockholm Card?
The City card is a great surprise from the city authorities to all visitors who have very short time for staying in Stockholm. Now everybody can do really a lot of things even within a couple of days.
