Being the capital of Sweden Stockholm is very often regarded to be one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe. It is impossible not to fall in love with this city. It sits on numerous islands connected by bridges offering you an opportunity to explore the city from the water. You may also stroll through the narrow cobbled streets of Old Town which will make you feel like a character of a fairytale. All these combined made Stockholm one of the most visited cities in Europe.

Visit Gamla Stan
As I have already mentioned it is an Old Town and is the first place you should visit in Stockholm. It is famous for its attractions like the Royal Palace, the cathedral and the Stockholm’s parliament. Gamla Stan is a perfect example how both medieval and modern attractions can exist side by side. It is one of the best places to visit in stockholm to go shopping in Stockholm. There are lots of markets and shops where you can buy something for yourself or for a present for friends and family.
Rent A Bike
Renting a bike in Stockholm will give you an opportunity to save more time and money. It is one of the most popular way of transportation in the city. In terms of number of bikes Stockholm of course can’t compete with Amsterdam, but it doesn’t mean that cycling in Stockholm is any less fun.
Stockholm is also a place with a festive atmosphere, especially in the S¶dermalm district, in which there are plenty of nightclubs and high-traffic areas.
When moving in the city of Stockholm, take precedence over all use of the subway and commuter rail and maritime transport that communicate both the various districts of the city as Stockholm with other major cities Sweden, as in this Nordic country the ship is a very common means of transport.
Stockholm may not enter our regular tourism plans, but not a bad option. Is sure to catch us with its islands and buildings and their landscaped parks. It is true that the average annual temperature does not exceed 7 C but with a good coat we can move to find an interesting city, unlike many other parts of Europe.
