As for the Stockholm attractions we should definitely mention Skansen. This worldwide known outdoor museum was founded in 1891. All types of local architecture can be found here. Furthermore, there are buildings not only preserved but still functioning! Schools, bakeris, post offices and forging shops are the most attractive in the last pre-Christmas evening when you can enter them and join funny competitions.
Skansen is also the host of the Christmas market in December. All people who want to know what “Stockholm tourism” is like should definitely visit it. You don’t even have to purchase anything if you don’t really like shopping. You could try to bake a tasty fresh bread instead. Challenging, isn’t it?
Skansen market attracts about a thousand visitors daily. Please, don’t get angry and don’t avoid queues and crowd and you will sense the festive ambience.
When non-shoppers like shopping
Stureplan square is an amusing touristic site with fantastic local market. People love strolling around and noticing cute things. Stureplan should certainly be visited during your Christmas holidays. There is no better place in the world which preserves such a Scandinavian spirit.
If you are exhausted of shopping – visit a great skate-rink situated not far away. Foreign guests love that skating rink and often come there. It turns the skating rink into a perfect place for getting to know new people.
Travelers of all ages will highly appreciate the museums of the Swedish capital. Anyway, there are some activities aimed mainly on families with little kids. Foreigners adore the circus of Stockholm so it would be fantastic if you go there. They offer a wide selection of shows for the kids and adults. The kids will be thankful and happy, believe us! Stockholm circus is a must-see attraction for any tour with family.
There are also ferry tours. You can go for such a tour near the Opera and get to one of small amusing islands. But one should be careful – in a windy weather it can be very cold on board. But even if you are cold you can always ask the servicemen for a big and warm buck skin. When there is fine weather a ferry trip is a perfect solution.
