Christmas in the fairy tale

Stockholm has an especial reputation among all other capitals. Winter Stockholm has a look of a part of a parallel fairytale world. The best way to check what Christmas Eve in Stockholm looks and smells like is to visit the Old Town. Maybe it is so because of that amazing atmosphere that surrounds the old town market.

Bake your Christmas bread

Skansen can be found among the most memorable points of interest of Stockholm. It is a very big outdoor museum founded long ago in 1891. Connoisseurs of Swedish architecture will be happy. What is more, some historical buildings still work! You just should come in the last evening before Christmas and see all those old schools, bakeries, forging shops and post offices.

Skansen is also the host of the Christmas marketplace during whole December. All tourists who want to learn what “Stockholm tourism” is in reality should certainly visit it. If you are not a shopper you can, let’s say, try baking some bread with the 19th century bakery equipment. Challenging, isn’t it?

Skansen market attracts several hundreds of tourists daily. It means that you should be ready for a lot of people and have plenty of patience.

Shopping for everyone

Stureplan square is an exciting touristic site with outstanding local market. People love walking around and noticing interesting things. Stureplan should not be ignored during your Christmas holidays. There is no better place in Europe which preserves this Scandinavian spirit.

If you feel tired of doing shopping – visit a great skating rink located not far from the market. Tourists from other countries love that ice-skating spot and regularly come there. Therefore the rink is the most suitable place for striking up new acquaintances.

Spend your time with family

Each performance there is suitable for watching it with family. Your family will have really much fun! Family leisure should be spent in nice places just like Stockholm circus.
