Christmas in Stockholm
Stockholm has a unique reputation among all other European capitals. Winter Stockholm has a look of a piece belonging to some fantasy world. By some reason the old Stockholm looks much more attractive in winter than in summer. It possesses its own unmatched spirit with the handmade souvenirs, marketplace, tasty chestnuts and glogg.
Bake your Christmas bread
As for the Stockholm attractions we should definitely mention Skansen. This famous outdoor museum was built in 1891. All types of local architecture are presented here. Another cool thing is that guests can go inside of most of those buildings. You just need to come here during the last evening before Christmas and see yourself those amazing schools, forging shops and post offices.
Skansen is also the host of the Christmas market in December. All tourists who would like to know what “Stockholm tourism” is like should certainly visit it. In case if you are not a shopping fan you can, for example, try baking some bread with the 19th century bakery equipment. Looks challenging, doesn’t it?
Skansen market attracts more than thousand visitors daily. Patience will be very helpful since there will certainly be queues, but it’s still definitely worth coming.
Shopping for everyone
Stureplan square is an exciting point of interest with fantastic marketplace. Buying doesn’t have to be the best part here. The biggest pleasure is in going around and choosing things. Stureplan should certainly be visited in your Christmas holidays. There is no other place in the whole world which preserves this Scandinavian spirit.
Ice-skating is a great thing after shopping, the rink is quite near to Stureplan. The rink visitors are mainly foreign travelers. Thus if you feel like meeting new people it can be an ideal place for that.
Spend your time with family
Visitors of all ages will highly appreciate the museums of the Swedish capital. All in all, there are many attractions created for families. Foreigners love Stockholm circus so it would be great if you go there. Great artists always prepare something incredibly exciting. Your children will have so much fun! Kids appreciate exciting shows so they will love Stockholm circus.
There are also ferry tours. You can take it near the Opera and then go to one of small amusing islands. But please remember that windy weather is not good for water tours. They offer thick buck skin to everyone, so don’t be modest and ask any of the employees about that. But if the weather is still and it doesn’t snow you will see really memorable views of winter Stockholm.
Enjoy your time in Stockholm
Sweden is a country on the North and sometimes its weather is really severe. Even if it’s 0C a keen wind makes it feel like it’s -15C at least. Wind is something really annoying that can make you choose some indoor activity.
Young tourists often suggest visiting Stockholm escape rooms emphasizing their nice design and plot. Exit Games, Questrooms and other places are waiting for you. There are about 30 attractions of that kind in Stockholm!
The National Museum and the Royal Opera suit well for an afternoon visit. The bars in Swedish capital are fantastic and as a tourist just must see them. The old part of Stockholm is literally full of clubs and bars. Basically the majority of Stockholm pubs and bars can be compared to their European counterparts. Swedish beer is incredibly specific and is worth trying without looking at the price. Active nightlife is another significant characteristic of the capital of Sweden. Great clubs and bars can be found in any part of city center. You will find a nice bar or club very soon.
