It is quite possible that occasionally you can notice some sudden discount – for example, when obtaining the Member’s card from Ikea. Nevertheless, we do not advise counting on it because basically the card price cannot change during the whole year.

Firstly, the Stockholm Card is definitely recommended for those people who visited Stockholm to enjoy the sightseeing. They will then avoid paying those irritating entrance fees and save some money. Buying the Card pays itself if your visit lasts for few days but is full of events.

But we are not trying to exaggerate the functionality and usefulness of the Stockholm Card – we all keep in mind that this solution is determined mainly for the attraction seekers. People who prefers other activities in the capital of Sweden like nightlife, business trips and strolling will not need such a service like the Card.

Fortunately there are many kiosks in Stockholm where you can quickly get the city card if you suddenly change your mind.
