The Stockholm Card-Do I Need One?
Stockholm is a charming place, it has a lot of adventure and it is the right place you can feel nature at its best. The beauty of Stockholm lies at every corner of nearly every street, in parks and museums. Several Swedish cities have discount cards specifically designed for short term visitors. The Stockholm Card is the fast track to entertainment and amazing experiences in Stockholm.
What advantages does the Card guarantee.
The Stockholm Card is the best solution for a few days visit and for those who are curious about cultural life of the capital, since it:
- Saves you the expense of entrance fees in nearly 80 Stockholm museums full of fantastic things. All places of interest and attraction sites are accessible for you without any limitations! As a Card owner you can avoid spending extra money in case if you are interesred in visiting at least several big museums.
- Lets you travel for free by all Stockholm trams, trains, buses and even by boats! Forget about the tickets – with this card you don’t need them!
- Provides you with discounted tickets for interesting places and services like the Stockholm Panorama bus, the Double Decker Tour bus tour, Boat routes to Drottningholm palace and to Cosmonova IMAX theatre.
For How Much Time Will The Card Be Valid?
The length of the stay is the most significant factor determining the most reasonable plan for you – there are 1, 2, 3 or 5 days plans available. The Stockholm Card is automatically activated in the day of purchase and is active until the end of the selected plan.
Where can I obtain the card and how much does it cost?
To get the card, simply visit any of Stockholm information desks and purchase it there. The price of the card is different depending on the number of days you buy it for. A one day plan goes for 525 Swedish Krona (SEK), 675 SEK is the price for a two days plan, 825 SEK for a three day plan and 1095 SEK is the price for a five day plan.
It is actually possible that occasionally you can encounter some sudden discount – for instance, when obtaining the Member’s card from Ikea. However, we do not suggest relying on it since actually the card price is not supposed to change during the whole year.
Who could need the Stockholm Card?
Firstly, the Stockholm Card is basically created for the people who visited Stockholm to enjoy the sightseeing. They will not have to pay those irritating entrance fees and save decent money. Buying the Card pays itself if your stay is short but eventful.
Taking a simple calculator and a computer you can easily and quickly compare the costs related to the card to the costs of being in Stockholm without the city card. We know the result for sure.
On the other hand, if you do not plan doing much sightseeing, then it is not a really good idea to get one. For Instance, if you would rather prefer to investigate Stockholm without any hurrying and visit few sites a day, purchasing a Stockholm Card does not look worthy. That is why it is called a short term tourist’s discount.
The good news is that there are many points in Stockholm where you can buy the card if you suddenly change your mind.
