Christmas in Stockholm
Talking about the most amusing world capitals Stockholm dawns upon first. Winter Stockholm resembles a part belonging to some fantasy reality. Stockholm Old Town always looks perfect, however in winter it becomes incredibly charming. It has its own unmatched spirit with the handmade souvenirs, market, tasty chestnuts and of course, glogg.
Bake your Christmas bread
There is a great place in Stockholm called Skansen. It is a very popular open-air museum founded in 1891. Fans of Swedish architecture will be satisfied. One more great thing is that you can get inside of most of those buildings. You just should come here during the last evening before Christmas and see those amazing old bakeries, post offices and forging shops.
In December, for example, they have a Christmas market in Skansen. If you would like to feel the winter spirit in Swedish capital – come here. You don’t need to buy anything if you don’t like shopping. You could try to bake a tasty fresh bread instead. Looks quite challenging, doesn’t it?
Skansen market gathers more than thousand tourists daily. Patience will help you a lot since there probably will be a crowd, however it’s still worth coming.
Shopping for non-shoppers
Stureplan square is an amusing place with fantastic market. Buying doesn’t have to be the best part of it. The main satisfaction is in going around and selecting things. It’s really worth coming to Stureplan on Christmas Eve. One will never find such a place with such a Scandinavian atmosphere in any other part of the world.
Ice-skating is a good activity after shopping, the skating spot is quite near to Stureplan. Tourists from other countries love that ice-skating rink and often go there. It makes the rink an ideal place for meeting new people.
The museums of the Swedish capital are interesting for tourists of all generations. But there are certain attractions created specifically for kids and parents. For example, you can go together to Stockholm circus. Great performers always prepare something incredibly exciting. The children will be happy and thankful, believe us! Stockholm circus is a brilliant place for any tour with family.
Ferry trips are fascinating too. Find a ferry just near the Opera and go for a fantastic tour around the area. But please remember that blowing weather is not good for water tours. There are thick and warm buck skins on board for those who are cold. When there is fine weather in Stockholm a ferry trip is an ideal solution.
Enjoy your time in Stockholm
Let’s remember that Stockholm is a Northern capital and sometimes it is frosty there. Even if it’s zero degrees a piercing wind makes it feel like it’s -15C or colder. When it got windy in the street it can be a reasonable idea to stay inside.
Young tourists and just those who like thrilling ambience will appreciate Stockholm escape rooms. You can check Questrooms, Exit Games and other attraction sites like that. Experienced escape room fans can find more than 2 dozens of places like this!
Royal Opera and museums are great for an afternoon or evening. The bars in Stockholm are awesome and you simply must see them. The greatest place for checking out Stockholm nightlife is the old town. Stockholm bars and clubs look more or less the same like in the rest of European countries. Swedish beer is very tasty and is worth trying regardless of the price. Hectic nightlife is another significant characteristic about the capital of Sweden. City center is full of awesome nightclubs, pubs and bars. It’s not a big deal to find a nice place to stay.
See the whole globe from the Globe
Globe-shaped Sports Center is another attraction of Stockholm. There is no other ball in the world larger than that. This building has another attraction besides its shape – there is an outstanding sightseeing desk there. 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 hesitate and select Stockholm as your Christmas holidays destination!
