Christmas in Stockholm
Speaking about the most interesting capitals Stockholm comes to mind first. In the winter time it resembles a fairytale town with all those neat and clean streets and decorations everywhere. The best way to check what Christmas Eve in Stockholm looks and smells like is to visit the Old Town. Maybe it is due to the fabulous ambience that surrounds the old market.
Become a baker
Skansen can be found among the most remarkable points of interest of Stockholm. It is a very large outdoor museum founded in 1891. All kinds of local architecture are presented here. One more awesome thing is that you can go inside of most of those buildings. The most fascinating things start in the evening of December, 24.
It the second half of December they hold a great Christmas market in Skansen. All people who wish to know what “Stockholm tourism” is in reality should definitely visit it. You don’t need to buy anything if you don’t really like shopping. You could try to bake a tasty fresh bread instead. Challenging, isn’t it?
Hunders of tourists come to the market in Skansen daily. Patience will be very helpful since there will certainly be a crowd, but it’s still worth coming.
When non-shoppers like shopping
You will become a true shopper if you visit Stureplan square. People love strolling around and watching cool things. Stureplan should certainly be visited during your Christmas holidays. You will hardly find such a site with such a Scandinavian ambience in any part of the planet.
Ice-skating is a great solution after shopping, the skating spot is not fat from Stureplan. It’s a well-known place where mostly tourists spend time. It makes the rink the best place for meeting new people.
Spend your time with family
The Stockholm museums are great for tourists of all generations. All in all, there are many attractions made for families. Stockholm circus could be an awesome choice. They have a large number of performances for the kids and adults. Your kids will be thankful and happy, no doubts! Stockholm circus is a brilliant place for any family tour.
Ferry tours are fascinating too. You can go for such a tour near the Opera and then go to one of small beautiful islands. However, please remember that severe wind is not a suitable weather for taking sea trips. But even if you are cold you may always ask the employees for a big and warm buck skin. When there is fine weather in Stockholm a ferry tour is an ideal solution.
Have fun in Stockholm!
Let’s keep in mind that Stockholm is a Nordic capital and between times it is really cold there. Even if it’s zero temperature outside a keen local wind can make you feel like -15C at least. Then it’s worth looking for an indoor kind of activity.
Young travelers quite often suggest going to local escape rooms saying that they have nice design and plot. There are many cool escape rooms and one can find the information about them on the Internet. There are about thirty attractions sites of that type in Swedish capital!
Afternoon and evening could be devoted to the Royal Opera or the National Museum. At night it will be an awesome decision to relax in a bar. There are dozens of them in the city center and in the old part. Swedish bars and clubs look nearly the same like in other Europe. Swedish capital is a rather costly place, but you must taste the local beer. Awesome nightlife is another significant characteristic about Stockholm. City center is full of awesome nightclubs, pubs and bars. It’s not a big deal to find a nice place to stay.
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. In addition, you could enjoy a great view from the Sports Center viewing platform. The revolving deck moves around the Center and gets to the height of 130 meters! Entire Stockholm will be seen in plain sight.
Don’t think twice and select Stockholm as your Christmas holidays destination!
