Christmas in the fairy tale
Speaking about the most attractive capitals of Europe Stockholm dawns upon first. Snowy winter makes Stockhol an incredibly fantastic place. The best way to see what Christmas Eve in Stockholm looks and smells like is to go to the Old Town. You will be astonished with its tremendous look and with the old market located there.
Bake your Christmas bread
There is a famous place in Stockholm called Skansen. It is a very famous open-air museum founded in 1891. You could find all sorts of Swedish architecture there. Another cool thing is that you can go inside of most of those buildings. You just need to come in the last evening before Christmas and see yourself those old schools, bakeries, post offices and forging shops.
It the second half of December you can get to a nice Christmas market in Skansen. All people who want to learn what “Stockholm tourism” is like should definitely visit it. If you are not a shopper you can, for example, try baking bread with the 19th century bakery equipment. Challenging enough, isn’t it?
Skansen market attracts about a thousand visitors daily. It means that you are recommended to be ready for a lot of people and be patient.
Shopping for non-shoppers
You will turn into an inveterate shopper if you visit Stureplan square. Buying is actually not the best part here. The main pleasure is in going around and selecting things. Stureplan should definitely be a point of your Christmas Eve route. There is no other place in the world that has this Scandinavian spirit.
After shopping you can go for ice-skating and have a great fun with your family and friends. It’s a well-known place where mostly foreigners come. Thus if you feel like meeting new people it seems to be an ideal place for that.
Spend your time with family
Travelers of all ages will highly appreciate Stockholm museums. Anyway, there are also some activities aimed mainly on families with little kids. For example, you could go with your children to Stockholm circus. They have a large number of performances for the kids and adults. Your family will have really much fun! Stockholm circus is a must-see place for any tour with family.
Another pleasant thing is ferry. Find a ferry near the Opera and go for a fantastic tour around the see area. But please don’t forget that windiness is not good for that. There are warm and thick buck skins on board for those who are cold. You can delight your eyes with magnificent views from the ferry if the weather is nice.
Enjoy your time in Stockholm
Sweden is a Northern country and from time to time the weather is really tough. Even if it’s 0C a piercing local wind can make you feel like -15C or colder. Then it’s better to look for an indoor activity.
One may also go to the local attractions called rooms that are really popular among tourists. There are dozens of different escape rooms and you can find the information about them on the Internet. Experienced escapers can visit more than 2 dozens of places like this!
The National Museum and the Royal Opera are amazing options for an afternoon occupation. Stockholm nightlife is one more interesting tourists’ attraction. The old town is literally full of clubs and bars. As a matter of fact most of Stockholm bars and pubs could be compared to the European counterparts. The capital of Sweden is a rather costly city, but you just must taste the local beer. Active nightlife is another significant thing about the capital of Sweden. Great bars and clubs can be found in any part of city center. You will find a nice bar or club very soon.
Enjoy a great view of Stockholm
Stockholm Sports Center looks like a very big ball. Actually, it’s the biggest ball in the world.
