Walking tours in Stockholm for free
Stockholm is a so-called Venice on North situated on 14 islands. However, the Swedish capital has deserved the name “big but small” among travelers. The issue is that regardless of big population Stockholm is a compact city. It makes Stockholm incredibly convenient – you may check almost all possible attractions by simply walking around.
Travel on foot
According to the foreign tourists’ opinion, the best possible way is to choose a walking tour. Many foreign tourists come for free walking tour in Stockholm daily. A tourists-friendly city arrangement makes each walking tour remarkable and captivating.
While on a walking tour, you can see more than looking through windows in a bus or a car. The points of interest are literally everywhere and all you need is to find them timely. If you wish to get some inspiration you can start the tour with, let’s say, Riddarholmen Church or the Great Hall. You will quickly see that Stockholm culture and history are spanless.
One more attraction is the Stockholm subway. The stations are very different and beautiful. We suggest you trying to see all of them and don’t hesitate to buy a day ticket. As a matter of fact many walking tours route have metro stations included.
Plan your route
A trip to Stockholm doesn’t mean that you need to plan your whole route. Rather often the most amusing things happen during a spontaneous walk. It means that purchasing a tour that looks presitigious no one guarantees you see everything.
Attractions like Royal National park deserve more attention than bus tours offer. A group tour will not let you stay there for several hours. This park has a fantastic atmosphere of relaxation. Tourists often come there to think and to relax.
Have you ever heard that Stockholm is a cultural capital as well? Then check at least several museums out of more than 70. It is easy for everybody to select the most fascinating exhibition. Culture of Sweden, Stockholm history and many other exciting things are found in the museums.
Time for fun
A big number of funny and cool events happens in certain time. People in Sweden have their own perception of Easter and the children get dressed like Halloween creatures and go for “trick-or-treat”. That’s quite unusual for the foreigners and thus funny.
Crayfish parties attract dozens of people including curious tourists. Those who would like to attend this outstanding event should come in August. Such a crayfish party would be a great chance for you to know locals better. There is no better chance to strike up new acquaintances and get that much fun.
