Christmas in Stockholm

Stockholm is a capital that cannot be compared to any other. In the winter time it looks like a fantasy town due to its clean and neat streets and decorations everywhere. The best way to check what Stockholm Christmas Eve looks like is to stroll around the Old Town. You will be surprised with its tremendous look and with the old market located there.

Bake your Christmas bread

Skansen is probably one of the most memorable points of interest in Stockholm. It is a very big open-air museum founded in 1891. Fans of Swedish architecture will be satisfied. Another great thing is that tourists can get inside of most of those buildings. Schools, bakeris, post offices and forging shops are the most charming in the last evening before Christmas when everybody can go inside and participate in funny competitions.

It the late December you can get to a great Christmas market in Skansen. All guests who wish to learn what “Stockholm tourism” is in reality should definitely visit it. If you are not a a big shopper you can, let’s say, try baking bread with the 19th century equipment. Challenging enough, isn’t it?

Several hunderds of people come to the market in Skansen daily. Therefore you should be prepared for a large crowd and have patience.
