Christmas in Stockholm
Stockholm is a capital which can’t be compared to others. Snowy winter turns Stockholm into an absolutely fantastic place. The best way to see what Christmas Eve in Stockholm smells and looks like is to visit the Old Town. It has its own inimitable ambience with the market, handmade souvenirs, tasty chestnuts and glogg.

Skansen is probably one of the most memorable places in Swedish capital. Since 1891 Skansen has been the most amusing open-air museum in Scandinavia. All kinds of Swedish architecture are presented here. What is more, some of those historical buildings still work! The most exciting things start in the evening of December, 24.
It the second half of December you can get to a great Christmas market in Skansen. It’s impossible to think of winter Stockholm tourism without this fabulous place. You don’t need to buy anything if you don’t really like shopping. You could try to bake your own bread instead. Challenging, isn’t it?
Hunders of people come to the market in Skansen daily. Please, don’t get angry and don’t flee away from crowd and queues and you will feel the festive spirit.
Shopping for everyone
Stureplan square in Stockholm will attract you even if you are an inveterate non-shopper. People love strolling around and finding cute things. Stureplan should be a point of your Christmas Eve route. There is no other place in the whole world that has this Scandinavian ambience.
After shopping you may go for ice-skating and have fun with your family. The rink visitors are typically foreign tourists. So if you feel like meeting new friends it’s going to be an ideal place to do it.
Spend your time with family
As a matter of fact, museums of Stockholm are a nice option for both adults and children. But there are many attractions created for parents and kids. Foreigners love the circus of Stockholm so it would be great if you go there. Each show there is good for watching it with family. Don’t worry, your children will not leave the circus dissatisfied! Family leisure should be spent in nice places just like Stockholm circus.
One more pleasant thing is ferry. You can go to this tour near the Opera and have a travel to one of small amusing islands. But please remember that windy weather is not good for water tours. They offer buck skin to everybody, so don’t be modest and ask the employees about that. If the weather is calm and it doesn’t snow you will see really memorable landscapes of winter Sweden.
Fun for everyone
Sweden is a Northern land and from time to time its weather is really severe. Even if it’s zero temperature a keen local wind can make you feel like it’s -15C or even worse. Then it’s worth looking for an indoor activity.
You could also check out the local attractions called rooms which are very popular among tourists. Check Questrooms, Exit Games and other attraction sites like that. There are about thirty attractions of that type in Swedish capital!
Afternoon or evening can be devoted to the Royal Opera or the National Museum. At night it’s a great decision to relax in a bar. The most interesting place for checking out Stockholm nightlife is the Medieval town. In fact most of Stockholm pubs and bars can be compared to the European counterparts. The prices could seem rather high, but anyway Swedish beer is brilliant. Nightlife in Stockholm is really fascinating. All you need to do is to go out late and walk along the streets. You will find a nice bar or club very soon.
