Christmas in the fairy tale
Stockholm has an especial place among all other world capitals. Winter Stockholm has a look of a piece of a fantasy reality. Stockholm Medieval part looks great all the time, however in winter it gains additional charm. Probably the reason is the fabulous ambience that presents in the old marketplace.
Become a baker
Skansen belongs to the most memorable points of interest of Swedish capital. Since 1891 Skansen has been the most interesting open-air museum in Scandinavia. Connoisseurs of the local architecture will be happy. Another awesome thing is that you can get inside of most of those buildings. The most interesting events begin in the evening of December, 24.
In December, for instance, they arrange a great Christmas market in Skansen. One couldn’t imagine winter Stockholm tourism without this fabulous place. You are not feeling like buying souvenirs? OK, but what would you say about baking Christmas bread in the bakery from 19th century? Looks rather challenging, doesn’t it?
Hunders of guests come to Skansen market daily. Patience will save you a lot of energy here since there probably will be queues and crowd, however it’s still worth coming.
When non-shoppers like shopping
You will turn into a true shopping fan if you go to Stureplan square. Buying doesn’t have to be the best part of it. The main satisfaction is in going around and finding unusual things. It’s really worth coming to Stureplan before Christmas. One will hardly find such a place with such a Scandinavian spirit in any other corner of the world.
If you feel exhausted of shopping – visit a great skate-rink situated not far from the market. Tourists from other countries like that ice-skating spot and quite often come there. So if you like meeting new friends it can be a perfect place for that.
Tourists of all ages will highly appreciate Stockholm museums. All in all, there are also places made specifically for parents and kids. For example, you can go with your children to Stockholm circus. Every show there is suitable for spending time with family. Your family will have so much fun! Stockholm circus is a brilliant attraction for any tour with family.
Ferry trips are fascinating too. You can go to this tour near the Opera and get to small amusing islands. Anyway, please remember that severe wind is not a good weather for sea tours. You will see warm and thick buck skins on a ferry for the people who are cold. When there is fine weather a ferry trip is a perfect pastime.
Fun for everyone
Stockholm has a short daylight in winter and sometimes the weather becomes simply unbearable. Low temperature is not a big problem, however the penetrating wind is. When it got windy in the street it could be a sensible idea to stay inside.
