Christmas in Stockholm
Stockholm has a unique place among all other world capitals. Winter Stockholm resembles a piece of some fantasy reality. The best way to see what Stockholm Christmas Eve smells and looks like is to go to the Old Town. Maybe it is so because of that fantastic ambience that presents in the old market.
Bake your Christmas bread
Skansen belongs to the most remarkable points of interest in Stockholm. It is a very famous open-air museum founded long ago in 1891. Fans of the local architecture will be happy. More than that, some of the historical buildings still work! You just need to come during the last evening before Christmas and see those old bakeries, forging shops and post offices.
In December, for example, they hold a Christmas market in Skansen. If you want to explore the winter ambience in Swedish capital – come here. You are not feeling like purchasing anything? OK, but what would you say about baking your Christmas bread in the bakery from 19th century? Challenging, isn’t it?
Several hunderds of tourists come to Skansen market every day. It means that you are recommended to be ready for a lot of people and have patience.
Shopping for non-shoppers
Stureplan square is an exciting point of interest with fabulous marketplace. Buying doesn’t have to be the best part here. The biggest pleasure is in walking around and selecting things. It’s really a great idea to visit to Stureplan before Christmas. There is no better attraction in the whole world which has such a Scandinavian ambience.
After shopping you may go for ice-skating and have a great fun with your family and friends. People from abroad like that ice-skating spot and often go there. Therefore the rink is the most suitable place for making new acquaintances.
Spend your time with family
The museums of the Swedish capital are definitely great for tourists of all generations. But there are also places created specifically for families. Tourists adore Stockholm circus so it would be fantastic if you go there. They have a wide selection of performances for the kids and adults. Don’t worry, your kids will not be dissatisfied! Stockholm circus is a brilliant place for any tour with family.
Ferry trips are exciting too. They start near the Opera building and go through the group of small islands. Anyway, please keep in mind that strong wind is not a good weather for taking sea tours. They have thick buck skin to everyone, so don’t be modest and ask any of the employees about that. When there is fine weather in Stockholm a ferry tour is a perfect solution.
Enjoy your time in Stockholm
Sweden is a Northern country and from time to time the weather can be really severe. Low temperature is typically not annoying, but the penetrating wind is. Then it’s better to look for an indoor kind of activity.
You may also check out the local attractions called rooms which are very popular among tourists. There are many different escape rooms and one may find them on the Internet. There are almost three dozens of escape rooms in Stockholm!
Local museums and Royal Opera are great for an afternoon or evening. Stockholm nightlife is one more interesting tourists’ attraction. The most interesting place for tasting Stockholm nightlife is the old town. Stockholm bars and clubs look nearly the same like in the rest of European countries. The prices can be rather high, however local beer is worth tasting. Nightlife in the Swedish capital is really fantastic. City center is full of awesome nightclubs, pubs and bars. You will find a nice bar or club very soon.
Enjoy a great view of Stockholm
Globe-shaped Sports Center is another attraction of Stockholm. Actually, it’s the biggest ball in the world. In addition, you could enjoy a great view from the Sports Center viewing platform. You will see entire Stockholm at a plain sight from the height of 130 meters! The Stockholm view from there is really breathtaking.
Don’t miss the Christmas Eve in Stockholm, you will feel perfect here!
