“Waste of time ”

written by Brooklynz60 on 17/07/2022

It is a beautiful country no doubt… but if you’re a Muslim or even if you are someone who had choices to travel around the world do not choose sweden… I went to Stockholm and we finish everything in two days… the tourist attractions were mostly small and in my opinion not worth the travel or the time.. at the end of this trip my mom was asked to open her hijab which was very very disrespectful towards us Muslims. In conclusion I find that stockholm is a waste of money and time due to the small attractions it offers and honestly if it was your only choice of travel just stay home… save to go elsewhere where you’ll be respected and you’ll actually the things you see and do. 1/10

Perfect place for enjoying holidays and picnics. Feels so refreshing here. Not so cheap but worth the money. Good staying options are also available there with great and delicious food. Amazing Museum. Beautiful place to visit. Excellent experience.

“Great trip to Sweden”

written by JacquelinePiromalli on 03/07/2015

I am writing about the flight only as we stayed with relatives. The trip that was arranged by Cheapo air was fantastic. We will travel with Cheapo again, hopefully many many times.

“Absolutely worth a visit...or two, or three...”

written by SuMao on 03/09/2012

Stockholm is a beautiful, yet expensive city, but then the whole of Scandinavia is not exactly cheap. I stayed there about two years ago in the winter, it was very cold and the whole city was covered with snow. It just looked beautiful! While staying there in a very nice hostel (City Backpackers very close to the main station) I was able to explore the city by feet and didn't have to use the underground line once. The beautiful islands on which the city spreads are easy accessible by a lot of bridges and definitely worth visiting. I especially recommend to check out Gamla Stan (the old city of Stockholm) and the Vasa Museum (even if you're normally not into museums this is worth visiting). If you have some time, make sure to check out the archipelago in front of Stockholm, it is simply beautiful, as well in summer as in winter. Its a city to visit in every season, and I will make sure to visit it sometime in the summer again.

“Stockholm may not spring to mind when you are...”

written by kazza38 on 26/06/2005

Stockholm may not spring to mind when you are considering a weekend city break, but this vibrant waterborne city has a great deal to offer the short stay visitor.

Stockholm in the spring could be the new Paris, with its magnificent architecture, amazingly clean streets and crisp, fresh air filling your lungs with every step. In early April, the ice is still melting and floats down the rivers in huge sheets, accommodating ducks for a free ride.

With flights from many regional airports, and fares starting from as little as £130* it is well worth a closer look.

Accommodation of all types and budgets are available. Business people and backpackers alike will appreciate the comfort of the rooms of the Youth Hostel, with a cosy bar area and substantial breakfasts provided. Ask for a room on the ship moored alongside. The Af Chapman is very secure with swipe cards needed for every door, and the bunk rooms have their own portholes which certainly provide a different view of the city. Members can stay for under £20 per night (www.stfchapman.com)

As with any city break, you'll need to be organised to get the most from your short stay. Stockholm is teeming with over 70 museums, but don't leave without a visit to The Vasa Museum. The unusual building houses a warship which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628 and was brought to the surface in 1961. It is in remarkable condition and a guided tour round the exhibit is excellent, even if museums aren't your normal scene.

The City Hall is another must see for your itinerary. The guided tours offer an insight into the mind of the architect Ragnar stberg whose mind changed often during the building, so much that the 'Blue Room' is made of red brick. That room is extremely famous however, as it hosts the Nobel Prize awards each year, Sweden's most prestigious social occasion.(www.stockholm.se/cityhall). The Golden Hall is outrageously extravagant, but glorious none the less. Climb the tower to get a spectacular view over the city.

You can continue the ceremonial experience by attending the Changing of the guard at the Royal Palace (www.royalcourt.se).

Stockholm is situated on 14 interlinked islands, so your visit is not complete without a cruise on one of the many tourist boats. Most attractions are in close proximity to each other, so as long as you are prepared with comfortable shoes, you can walk around the city easily.

One of the nicest areas to explore is Gamla Stan, the old town. Here the narrow, cobbled streets open into social squares, ideal to rest your weary feet while drinking hot chocolate, and sampling the delightful apple cake.

Scandinavia is well known for being a little on the expensive side, but, in reality, meals out in Stockholm should cost no less than a city centre restaurant in the UK, with many offering main courses for around £10. Fish is certainly a speciality, but why not try Reindeer or Moose for a more unusual taste. Alcohol can be expensive with a pint of beer costing almost £5 in places. Wine with a meal shouldn't break the bank. At least you can guarantee a clear head in the morning to begin your sightseeing again.

No city break would be complete without a spot of shopping. If it's designer outlets you're looking for, head for the trendy SOFO (South of Folkungagatan) area, or for handicrafts to take back to the family, wander in Gamla Stan for hidden treasures.

Stockholmers make you feel very welcome, and most speak immaculate English. So, don't head for Barcelona or even Prague, give the heart of Sweden a try. And not an IKEA in sight.
