Stockholm offers a taste of Scandinavia for travellers and holidaymakers young and old. The Swedish capital offers the ideal opportunity for shopping, culinary experiences, nature and culture. The city, which is known as 'the Venice of the North', sits on the water and is well known for its sea views.
The best time to book your Stockholm holidays is any time from spring to autumn. The city experiences its most pleasant weather from around May to September. There are four airports serving Stockholm and they are all connected to the city centre by airport buses. Once you are in the centre there is a public transport system with buses, overground and underground trains that is very easy to navigate. The city is also extremely bike-friendly, with bike paths to be found everywhere. The time zone in Stockholm is GMT +2.
Stockholm holidays can be tailored to meet your tastes. The city's most visted museum, the Vasa Museum, contains shipwrecks from around the world and is truly a fascinating experience. It is located within Stockholm's favourite park Djurgarden, along with the Skansen open air museum and zoo. Whatever you do, do not miss Gamla Stan, the Old Town, for its small alleyways and idyllic squares. It is one of the city's most picturesque and historical areas.
There are several options for day excursions from Stockholm. The medieval and ancient settlements of Uppsala and Sigtuna are short both journeys away and make for the ideal change from the city's hustle and bustle. Västerås, Sweden's sixth largest city, is also close by and its mixture of old and new is instantly loveable. The Stockholm archipelago is made up of 24,000 islands, islets and rocks which can be seen via a boat trip.
