Why Go on a Tour of Stockholm

A first-time visit to Stockholm is bound to be an incredible experience, filled with a mix of history, unique architecture and its best-known landmarks.

Being the largest city in Sweden and entire Scandinavia, it boasts a number of must-see sights and interesting museums that you won’t regret adding to your Stockholm itinerary.

By its beauty, Stockholm competes with lovely Paris and is often picked as the most favorite European city. And it's not without reason! The Stockholm Old Town, called Gamla Stan, is one of the biggest and most well-preserved medieval old towns in Europe, full of narrow alleyways, beautiful churches, history, and cozy restaurants and cafés.

You can spend an entire day wandering in the old town and visiting such sights as Gustav Adolfs Torg, the geographic center of the Swedish capital, the Royal Palace, the main cathedral, Stockholm City Hall, the Riksbron Bridge, among others.

Visiting museums in Stockholm can easily become a meaningful and memorable part of your experience as well. The lovely city is home to such incredible museums as the Stockholm Vasa Museum, housing a well-preserved 17th-century ornate ship, the only one of its kind in the world.

The Skansen Open-Air-Museum, offering a trip back in time to the country before the industrial revolution, is worth a visit too. You can also immerse yourself into Swedish culture by visiting the Abba Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Swedish History Museum, and so many more. So don’t hesitate to choose this truly magnificent city as your next vacation destination!
