Christmas in the fairy tale

Stockholm has a unique reputation among all other capitals. Winter Stockholm looks like a part of some fairytale reality. Tourists often say the old town of Stockholm is much more amusing in in winter. It has its own unmatched atmosphere with the marketplace, handmade souvenirs, sweet chestnuts and glogg.

Become a baker

As for the Stockholm attractions we’d like to mention Skansen. Since 1891 Skansen has remained the most interesting open-air museum in Scandinavia. All kinds of local architecture are presented here. One more great thing is that tourists can get inside of most of the old buildings. Bakeries, schools, post offices and forging shops are the most interesting in the last pre-Christmas evening when you can go inside and take part in funny competitions.

It the second half of December there is a nice Christmas market in Skansen. One couldn’t imagine winter Stockholm tourism without this place. You don’t have to buy anything if you don’t like shopping. You could try to bake your own bread instead. Looks challenging, doesn’t it?

Christmas market in Skansen museum traditionally attracts a great number of people. Therefore you should be ready for a big crowd and be patient.

Shopping for everyone

Stureplan square in Stockholm will charm you even if you are an inveterate non-shopper. Some say that the whole pleasure is not about the goods you buy but to the process itself. Stureplan should certainly be visited in your Christmas holidays. There is no better attraction in the world which preserves such a Scandinavian ambience.

After shopping you may go for ice-skating and have a great entertainment with your family and friends. It’s a very popular place where mainly foreigners spend time. Therefore the rink is an ideal place for striking up new acquaintances.

Spend your time with family

The museums of the Swedish capital are amusing for both young and adult guests. But there are certain attractions made for families. For example, you could go together to Stockholm circus. Great artists always prepare something incredibly amusing. Don’t worry, the kids will not be disappointed! All kids like exciting performances so they will fall in love with Stockholm circus.

Ferry tours are fascinating as well. You can take it near the Opera and then go to small beautiful islands. Anyway, please remember that strong wind is not a good weather for taking sea trips. But even if you are cold you can always ask the employees for a thick and incredibly cozy buck skin. You can delight your eyes with magnificent views from the deck if the weather is nice.

Have fun in Stockholm!

Let’s remember that Stockholm is a Northern capital and occasionally it’s cold there. Even if it’s zero degrees outside a keen wind makes it feel like it’s -15C or colder. When it’s windy in the street it can be a good idea to stay inside.

Young tourists often recommend visiting Stockholm escape rooms saying that they have nice design and plot. There are many cool escape rooms and you may find them online. There are more than thirty attractions sites of that type in Stockholm!
