The Stockholm Card-Do I Need One?

Stockholm is a magnificient city with a great deal of events and it is the best place for enjoying nature at its best. The beauty of Stockholm can be seen at nearly any corner of the street, in parks and museums. Several cities in Sweden provide special discount cards designed specifically for short term visitors. The Stockholm Card is the short cut to fun and amazing experiences while in Stockholm.

What benefits does the Card provide.

The main purpose of the discount card is to allow short term tourists to discover as many as possible interesting places and things in Stockholm. But what exactly does the Card do? Well, it:

  • Gives you free access to over eighty touristic spots where you have a great chance to explore to your fill. With this card, you can easily access to all kinds of attraction sites with no limitations. It means that you will not need to pay fees in the museums as much as you hold the card; this could save you a lot of money especially in case if you are going to visit several museums and other tourist points of interest.
  • Grants you with the unlimited access public transport. Having such a discount solution, you can go anywhere by trams and city trains, buses and even boats.
  • Saves your funds by guaranteeing a discount for various city tours on a bus (including doubledecker) and for boat routes to the palace of Drottningholm and tickets to Cosmonova IMAX theatre.

How Long Does The Card Last?

The Stockholm card is valid for 5 days after the day of purchase or for another number of days, depending on for how long you stay and what plan you have selected. There are several plans available – one day, two days, three days and five days.

How much does the Card cost and where can I buy it?

The price policy is really fair and transparent – a buyer pays correspondingly for the number of days that he or she spends in Stockholm. There are cards for 1, 2, 3 and 5 days – take any that suits better.

The Card costs the unchanged amount of money within the whole year and all the discounts are occasional – for instance, Ikea gives attractive discounts for the buyers who sign up for the Family Membership card of Ikea.

What is the best time to buy the Card?

This City discount card is a surprising gift from the city authorities to all visitors who have quite little time for staying in Stockholm. Now everybody can do really a lot of things even within a couple of days.

Taking a simple calculator and a computer you can easily and quickly compare the costs of using the card to the costs of traveling around Stockholm without the card. We are perfectly aware of the result.

Without a doubt, the Stockholm Card can be called a interesting solution for those tourists only who wants to spend a lot of time on sightseeing – tourists who like cultural time will definitely highly appreciate all those strong points the Stockholm Card grants. The rest will rather consider it useless – if you are going to hang out in night clubs or to simply stroll about at a leisurely pace you have no need to buy the Card

Fortunately there are many spots in Stockholm where you can purchase the city card if you suddenly change your mind.
