The Stockholm Card can make your life in this great city much more pleasant and easy and help you avoid inconvenient moments and time wasting.
What advantages does the Card offer.
During a short-term touristic visit to the capital, The Stockholm Card is your access to entertainment and nature investigation. The card:

- Relieves you from paying anything
For public means of transport – take any bus or any tram and go around the city in any direction. Moreover, you can become a passenger of any of the boats for free as well! It’s that awesome?
- Offers interesting discounts for different sightseeing tours arranged on boats and buses and for visiting Cosmonova IMAX theatre.
How Long Does The Card Last?
The length of your visit is the most significant factor determining the most suitable 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 stays valid until the end of the selected plan.
Where Do I Get the Card from and what is its Price?
You can obtain the Stockholm Card in any information center in Stockholm. The cost depends on the number of days you need the Card for – one-day use costs 525 SEK (Swedish Krona), two-day plan goes for 675 SEK, three and five days plans cost 825 and 1095 SEK respectively.
The Card costs the unchanged amount of money during the whole year and discounts are occasional – for example, Ikea provides attractive discounts for the buyers who decide to obtain the Family Membership card of Ikea.
When To Buy One
This City discount card is an awesome gift from the authorities to all tourists who have very short time for staying in Stockholm. Now they can visit many great places even within two or three days.
Stockholm has a great number of very interesting attraction sites that have no comparable copies in the world. If you are an experienced tourist then you know it perfectly.
One way or another, if sightseeing and so called “rubberneck tour” are not in your list there is actually no sense in buying the Stockholm Card. The same concerns the people who prefer discovering and enjoying Swedish capital by roaming the streets and meeting new people.
Luckily there are many spots in Stockholm where you can purchase the card if you change your mind.
