Christmas in Stockholm

Talking about the most charming world capitals Stockholm comes to mind first. In the winter time it resembles a fantasy place due to its neat and clean streets and decorated building. By some reason the old town of Stockholm is much more amusing in in winter. It possesses its own unmatched ambience with its handmade souvenirs, market, sweet chestnuts and glogg.

Turn into a baker

Skansen can be found among the most memorable sites in Swedish capital. Since 1891 Skansen has been the most amusing open-air museum in entire Scandinavia. One could find all types of Swedish architecture there. What is more, some of those old buildings still work! Bakeries, schools, forging shops and post offices are the most interesting during the last pre-Christmas evening when you can go inside and participate in funny competitions.

In December, for instance, they hold a Christmas market in Skansen. It’s impossible to think of winter Stockholm tourism without this place. You are not feeling like buying anything? OK, but what about baking Christmas bread in the 19th century bakery? Challenging, isn’t it?

Christmas market in Skansen museum traditionally attracts a great number of tourists. Patience will be very helpful since there will probably be queues and crowd, however it’s still definitely worth coming.

When non-shoppers like shopping

Stureplan square is an amusing touristic site with fabulous marketplace. People like walking around and watching cool things. Stureplan should definitely be an important point of your Christmas route. There is no other attraction in the whole world that has this Scandinavian spirit.

Ice-skating is a good thing after shopping, the rink is not fat from Stureplan. It’s a public place where mainly foreign tourists come. It means that if you want to meet new friends it seems to be an ideal place for that.

Spend your time with family

Visitors of all ages will appreciate Stockholm museums. Anyway, there are also activities aimed mainly on parents and children. Tourists like the circus of Stockholm so it would be great if you go there. They offer a wide selection of performances for the kids and adults. Don’t worry, your kids will not be dissatisfied! All kids like breathtaking performances and they will love Stockholm circus.

One more great thing is ferry. One can find a ferry just near the Opera and join a great tour around the see area. But be very careful – in a windy weather it is really cold on board. You will find thick and warm buck skins on a ferry for those who are cold. If the weather is nice and it’s not snowing you will see really unforgettable views of winter Stockholm.

Enjoy your time in Stockholm

Sweden is a Northern land and from time to time its weather gets really severe. Low temperature is not a big problem, but the wind is. Wind is something that can make you give up and vote for some indoor activity.

Afternoon or evening could be spent in the Royal Opera or the National Museum. Stockholm nightlife is one more amusing attraction for the tourists. The most interesting place for night hanging out is the old town. Typically nightclubs in Stockholm look a lot like same places in Europe. The prices could seem quite high, but anyway local beer is worth tasting. Nightlife in the Swedish capital is really fantastic. City center is full of awesome nightclubs, pubs and bars. Everyone will quickly and easily find a cool place.
