Holidays in Stockholm
[ Tuesday, 8th May 2012 ]
A few years back I visited Stockholm. Its not your typical holiday destination but there is an awful lot more to Stockholm than ABBA and IKEA. Stockholm is made up of lots of islands and offers a wonderful archipelago, boat trips can taken but make sure your visiting in Spring or Summer because Winter is freezing!! Stockholm boasts one of the largest palaces in Europe! The Royal Palace is the official residence of His Majesty the King of Sweden, with over 600 rooms. The Palace is open to the public and no less than five museums. You don’t want to miss the daily changing of the guards. Another popular tourist attraction is The Vasa Museum holds the Vasa Ship in remarkable condition. The ship sank in 1628 in the middle of Stockhom’s harbor. It only sailed 1,300 meters before heading below the city. It really is something to see. Public transport is excellent and easy to use. The city itself is has some beautiful quaint cobble blocked streets to wander around, but make sure you wrap up because there’s cold and then theres Stockholm.
