Who could need the Stockholm Card?

Stockholm is a splendid but rather costly capital. It’s kind of a big challenge to find all its points of interest and capture the charm of the city without losing all money.

What the Stockholm Card Offers.

The main purpose of this card is to help short term visitors learn a lot of exciting things and places in Stockholm. So what actually does the City Card do? Well, it:

  • Saves you the expense of entrance fees in over 80 Stockholm museums each full of interesting things. All attraction sites and places of interest are accessible for you without any limitations! As a Card owner you will be able to avoid spending too much money in case if you would like to visit at least several big museums.
  • Grants free access to all public transport – use buses, trains, trams and even boats without having to pay for it!
  • Provides attractive discounts for many sightseeing tours arranged on buses and boats and for visiting Cosmonova IMAX theatre.

Until When Can I Get The Card?

To save your funds there are four price solutions for different number of days. You can choose among one, two, three or five days visit and thus pay only for needed number of days without any extra costs.

Where can I get the card and what is the price?

The price depends on the package you select – 525 SEK (Swedish Krona) is for the one-day plan, 675 SEK is the cost of the two-day plan, 825 and 1095 SEK are needed for three and five-days plans. Every tourist can easily and quickly buy the City Card in absolutely any information service center in Stockholm.

The Card costs the unchanged amount of money during the whole year and discounts happen occasionally – for example, Ikea provides attractive discounts for the buyers who become owners of the Family Membership card of Ikea.

When To Buy One

Firstly, the Stockholm Card is basically recommended for the people who came to Stockholm to enjoy the sightseeing. They will not have to pay those annoying entrance fees and save some money. Purchasing the Card pays itself if your stay is short but eventful.
