Free tours around Stockholm
Almost sixty bridges and fourteen islands make Stockholm a Northern Venice. It may look strange, but the capital of Sweden has deserved the name “big but small” among tourists. The issue is that in spite of quite big population Stockholm is a rather close-together city. It is a bit narrow and thus suitable for going on foot.
As you have probably already understood walking is a very popular way to enjoy Stockholm. Free walking tours around Stockholm are like a big magnet for inveterate walkers. The old-fashioned urban design provides a great number of amusing things for them.
Car and bus tours will never let you feel the Stockholm atmosphere, but walking tours will. You will meet attractions literally on your whole way. If you want inspiration you may begin with, for instance, Riddarholmen Church or the Great Hall. Stockholm history is just fantastic, one will definitely agree on that.
One more attraction is the Stockholm subway. Tourists often say that every station is a masterpiece. Try to visit all of them and don’t even hesitate to pay for a 24-hours ticket. Stations of Stockholm subway are found in nearly all walking tours.
Plan your route
Creating a detailed plan is not a necessary thing when you go to Stockholm. People usually find something awesome spontaneously. Thus in Stockholm it can be more sensible to choose a free walking tour and not to buy a package one.
Let’s take the Royal National park for example – this lovely place is worth walking there for the whole day. It is rather impossible when you are on a bus tour around Stockholm. This place has a fantastic ambience of enervation. Tourists often go there to think and to relax.
Do you know what displays the majesty of Stockholm better than anything? There are about interesting museums available for all tourists. Everybody will find something interesting particularly to him or her. Arts, history, culture, weapons and hundreds of other exhibitions will definitely make you interested.
Time for fun
The proper time of your travel to Stockholm can provide a whole lot of pleasant surprising things. People in Sweden have their own vision of Easter and the children get dressed like Halloween monsters and play “trick-or-treat”. One will never find a more strange way to celebrate Easter when he or she sees Swedish children dressed exactly like Halloween monsters.
Another cool great to feel Sweden deeper is to come here for a crayfish festival. If you wish to join it – come to Sweden in August. Such a crayfish festival would be a great chance for you to know local people better. That’s a big opportunity to make new friends among Stockholm inhabitants and get memorable impressions.
Come and enjoy
Finally, the main goal of any traveling is making people satisfied and happy. Some of us have fun in clubs and bars, others like visiting museums and finally the rest prefers something different. We suggest you spending your time here as you like. It’s your travel and it’s up to you what to do. The more relaxed you are the more great things in Stockholm you will see!
