What are the reasons for purchasing the Stockholm Card?

Stockholm is a brilliant but at the same time rather costly capital. It’s sort of a big challenge to find its attractions and sense the ambience of the city without leaving there much money.

What the Stockholm Card Offers.

All short term visitors will highly appreciate the city discount card which is incredibly useful in museums, theaters etc., since it

  • Offers you free admission to over 80 touristic spots where you have a great chance to expand new horizons. With this card, you get access to tourist attraction site with no restrictions. Thus you will not have to pay entrance fees in the museums for the whole time the card is active; it will let you save much money especially if you’d prefer visiting at least several museums and other tourist attraction sites.
  • Releases you from necessity to pay for public means of transport – choose any bus or any tram and go around the city in any direction. More than that, you can become a passenger of any of the boats for free as well! It’s that awesome?
  • Guarantees discounted tickets for interesting places and services like the Stockholm Panorama bus, the Open Top Double Decker bus tour, Boat routes to Drottningholm palace and to Cosmonova IMAX theatre.

How Much Time Is Left To Get The Card?

The duration of the stay is the most important factor determining the best plan – there are 1, 2, 3 or 5 days plans available. The Stockholm Card is automatically activated in the day of purchase and remains active until the chosen plan ends.

Where can I obtain the card and how much does it cost?

The price policy is very fair and transparent – a customer pays correspondingly for the number of days spent in Stockholm. There are city cards for 1, 2, 3 and 5 days – choose any that suits better.

The Card costs the same amount of money during the whole year and discounts happen occasionally – for example, Ikea offers discounts for the buyers who sign up for the Family Membership card of Ikea.

What is the best time to buy the Card?

Visitors can have many pleasant advantages with the Stockholm Card. They will be free from paying entrance fee when enjoying sightseeing and museums – if you intend to have a great number such activities then purchasing the Card will allow you to save expenses.
