Free tours around Stockholm
Nearly sixty bridges and 14 islands make Stockholm a Northern Venice. At the same time Swedish capital is often claimed to be “World Smallest Large City”. The reason is that Stockholm is not stretched around like the most of modern cities. It is a bit narrow and thus suitable for going on foot.
Travel on foot
According to the foreign tourists’ point of view, the best way is to move around Stockholm on foot. Many foreign tourists go to join free walking tour around Stockholm every day. As the practice shows, it will be difficult to find a disappointed visitor.
Bus tours will never let you feel properly the Stockholm atmosphere, but tours on foot will. The attraction sites are just everywhere and all one needs to do is to notice them timely. If you want some inspiration you may start the tour with, for instance, Riddarholmen Church or the Great Hall. Within a couple of hours you will see how brilliant the local cultural and historical heritage is.
The tourists are highly surprised with the local subway. Tourists like saying that absolutely every station is a masterpiece. Some tourists buy a day ticket and simply go one by one station and see them all. Subway stations are included in almost all walking tours.
Create your own route
A trip to Stockholm doesn’t consider that you should plan your whole route. Rather often the most exciting things occur when you are at an unplanned walk. Even if you buy a good Stockholm city tour it doesn’t mean you will see as much as you could see walking.
Let’s take the Royal National park as an example – this lovely place is worth walking there for the whole day. A group tour will not allow you to stay there for several hours. The park is very charming and calm. Tourists adore to come there alone to think and to rest.

A big number of funny events takes place in certain time. Let’s say, you have hardly ever imagined that local kids and teenagers can dress out just like for Halloween and demand candies on Easter. One will never find a weirder way to spend Easter when he or she sees Swedish children dressed exactly like Halloween creatures.
Crayfish parties gather really a lot of people including curious tourists. If you want to visit it – go to Sweden in August. Such a crayfish festival would be a great opportunity for you to know local people better. That’s a big chance to make new friends among Stockholm people and get new impressions.
Don’t worry and travel
Finally, the main purpose of any traveling is in making people happy. Some people entertain in clubs and bars, others like visiting museums and the rest prefers something different. Please, listen to your heart and go to the places you feel good in. It’s your travel and it’s up to you what to do. Come to the Swedish capital and enjoy your time!
