The Glorious Capital of Sweden

If you're wondering what the capital of Sweden all about, it is a truly vibrant city with style in its genes. Many people agree that Stockholm is the best place to experience the beauty, simplicity, and functionality of Scandinavian design.

The main advantage of the city is that it's small enough to easily get around on foot or by its efficient public transportation system. That's why most of the tours in Stockholm do not include transportation.

Don't worry, walking Stockholm streets is enjoyable and will not affect the number of sights you'll explore. Besides, taking a ride in the Stockholm metro is an incredible cultural experience as it is called the world's biggest underground art museum with absolutely out-of-this-world station designs.

The Stockholm Old Town with its cobblestone streets, narrow alleys, and old buildings is an absolute 'must see' on any Stockholm tour. This extremely charming place embodying 700 years of history has been the number one tourist attraction.

As for shopping, you can start your shopping tour from abundant vintage boutiques, Scandinavian design stores, and of course the local H&M.

And then it is time for coffee! In Sweden a coffee drinking pause is called "fika" and is much more than just a coffee break, it's somewhat of a local cultural phenomenon and an opportunity to catch up with friends sharing coffee and a piece of Swedish cake in numerous cozy cafes or 6 beautiful city parks.

Like in most cities located on the waterfront, boat tours in Stockholm Sweden are mandatory. You can discover thousands of small islands in the Stockholm archipelago tour and it's simply breathtaking. The waterways of Stockholm are not only for looking at beautiful sights but you can also take a swim right in the center of the city.

Stockholm can also be proud of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Royal Palace Drottningholm (open to public) which is sometimes compared to Versailles and the magical Skogskyrkogården, or Woodland Cemetery.

Moreover, make sure to place several more places on your Stockholm itinerary, these are the City Hall, the Stockholm Cathedral, as well as the Royal Opera House.
