Christmas in Stockholm

Stockholm is a capital which can’t be compared to any other. Winter makes the capital of Sweden an incredibly fantastic town. By some reason the old town of Stockholm looks much more amusing in winter than in summer. Maybe the reason is that amazing ambience that surrounds the old marketplace.

Become a baker

Skansen is probably one of the most memorable points of interest in Swedish capital. This famous open-air museum was built in 1891. All sorts of Swedish architecture are presented here. Moreover, there are some buildings not only preserved until now but still working! Schools, bakeris, forges and post offices are the most charming during the last pre-Christmas evening when you can go inside and take part in funny competitions.

Skansen also holds the Christmas marketplace in December. All guests who wish to learn what “Stockholm tourism” is like should certainly visit it. You don’t have to purchase anything if you don’t want to. You could go and bake a fresh bread instead. Looks rather challenging, doesn’t it?

Skansen market attracts more than thousand tourists daily. Please, have patience and don’t avoid queues and crowd and you will sense the festive ambience.

Shopping for everyone

Stureplan square in Stockholm will touch your feelings even if you are an inveterate non-shopper. Buying is actually not the best part of it. The biggest pleasure is in going around and finding unusual things. It’s really worth coming to Stureplan before Christmas. You will never find such a site with such a Scandinavian spirit in any other corner of the world.

After the shopping you may go for ice-skating and have fun with your family and friends. The skating rink visitors are mainly foreign travelers. Therefore the skating rink is an ideal place for making new acquaintances.

Spend your time with family

As a matter of fact, Stockholm museums are a great option for people of all ages. All in all, there are many attractions created for parents and kids. For example, you can go altogether to Stockholm circus. They offer a wide selection of performances for the kids and adults. Your kids will be thankful and happy, no doubts! Stockholm circus is a must-see attraction for any tour with family.

There are also ferry trips. They begin near the Opera building and pass the group of small islands. But one should be very careful – in a windy day it is very cold on board. There are thick and warm buck skins on a ferry for the people who are cold. If the weather is calm and without snow you will enjoy really memorable views of winter Sweden.

Fun for everyone

Sweden is a Northern country and from time to time its weather is really severe. Even if it’s zero degrees a piercing Swedish wind can make you feel like -15C or even worse. Wind is something really annoying that can make you give up and decide to choose some indoor activities.

Young tourists and just those who love thrilling ambience will appreciate Stockholm escape rooms. There are many cool escape rooms and you can find them on the Internet. There are several dozens of such rooms here in Stockholm!

The National Museum and the Royal Opera suit well for an afternoon occupation. Stockholm nightlife is one more amusing tourists’ attraction. The greatest place for tasting Stockholm nightlife is the Medieval town. Swedish bars and clubs look more or less the same like in the rest of European countries. The capital of Sweden is a rather expensive city, but you must taste the local beer. Stockholm nightlife is very hectic. All you need to do is to go out late and go along the streets. It’s not a big deal to find a nice place to stay.

Enjoy a great view of Stockholm

Globe-shaped Sports Center is another attraction of Stockholm. Actually, it’s the biggest ball in the world. It makes it a very interesting place to visit especially because it has an outstanding viewing point. The platform revolves around the Center and rises up to 130 meters! Entire Stockholm will be seen in plain sight.

Don’t miss the Christmas Eve in Stockholm, you will feel perfect here!
