Stockholm – the northern Venice of Vikings
City lights’ reflections in shimmering water, screams of seagulls, curving and narrow streets that lead to fairytale-like palaces – these things are what makes up Stockholm’s heart and soul. Each year the city welcomes one million visitors that are eager to admire both the Vikings’ heritage of the Middle Ages, and modern art. Add pricy but delicious food to this list of Swedish beauties, and you get a perfect travel plan.
How to travel?
Stockholm welcomes its guests in three airports. Depending on the airlines, you could land in Arlanda, Skavsta, or Broma Airports. Buses or trains will quickly take you to the centre of Sweden’s capital.
The city built on 14 islands offers inner transportation by minibuses, trams, or metro. Ticket prices are high, so a city card will be necessary if you want to economize. You can also travel island to island in ferries. Old town is usually best admired on foot.
What to taste?
Sweden’s capital is surrounded by water. That’s why locals love to indulge in various fish dishes. When visiting Stockholm, don’t miss out on trying some marinated herring from the Baltic Sea, fermented Baltic herring, and smoked, canned, or cooked salmon.
If you cannot resist meat and vegetable dishes, try some of the famous beef meatballs, or some yellow pea and bacon soup. You can quench your thirst with foamy Swedish beer or delicious fruit punch. We recommend trying some pancakes, cheese cake, and cinnamon rolls.
What to see?
Stockholm’s old town has preserved an amazingly authentic spirit of the Middle Ages. Even the simplest wandering around along numerous narrow cobble streets will leave you with some beautiful, intimate memories. By travelling from bridge to bridge you will be able to get acquainted with most famous places in the capital.
We recommend taking a closer look at the oldest building in Stockholm, the Riddarholm Church. It is located close to the Royal Palace that has even 55 rooms; this palace has been named the biggest royal palace in the world. The Stockholm Cathedral, town hall, and parliament are also worth seeing.
Scandinavian beauty of Stockholm can be observed better if you use the “Ericsson Globe” funicular, or simply take a walk along the fabulous Strandvägen Boulevard by the river. Magnificent history and culture of the country can be better understood by paying a visit to Stockholm’s Modern Art, Astrid Lindgren, and National Museums. If the weather’s favourable, definitely visit the first open-air museum, Skansen.
What to do?
The King’s Garden Park can offer you a calm and relaxing afternoon, or an intense and fun time spent in a live concert. In turn, Rålambshovsparken Park will be a perfect place for having a picnic, sunbathing, or for a friendly football match. Another possible type of entertainment is water tours. They will help you get a better look at the Stockholm archipelago and will show, that Stockholm can be likened to an inclusion of the Middle Ages, shimmering in the surrounding formation of modern megacities.
