Flights to Sweden
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden is widely known as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Its beauty is backed by ten centuries of rich history and culture. Few places in the world would allow you to enjoy the perks of a metropolis on top of offering magnificent natural scenery, and this mix is exactly what is alluring about this city.
To learn about Stockholm’s rich history, travel to The Vasa Museum, which features The Vasa, the only fully preserved seventeenth-century ship left in the world. Take a walking tour with a guide to understand more about the ship’s mystical wonders.
Moving on, you can witness the change of guard at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, the official residence of the King of Sweden. Wander around the museums in the area on foot and admire the grandeur of one of the largest palaces in Europe. Speaking of palaces, be sure to visit the Drottningholm Palace as well. It is Sweden’s best preserved royal palace and is also one of Stockholm’s three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Stroll along to the City Hall, with its spire featuring The Three Crowns, one of the most renowned silhouettes in Stockholm. Entry is via daily guided tours only, so be sure to get your tickets into the country’s epitome of romantic architecture. Interestingly, the Nobel Prize Winners banquet is held there as well.
If you are a fan of ABBA, be sure to head over to the ABBA Museum, where interactive exhibits showcase their music, sense of style and everything that made them iconic. You’ll certainly be singing along to ABBA songs for the rest of your day.
You can travel around Stockholm via the T-bana, the city’s version of a metro system. Places that cannot be reached by the subway can be accessed by bus or taxi. However, do note that taxis are very expensive in Stockholm. An alternative way of getting around is by bicycle, which should be a good enough mode of transport to see most of the attractions within the city centre.
But don’t just spend all your time in one city! Take the opportunity to also visit Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg. The city of Gothenburg is located on the west coast, and its closeness to the sea has given the city a reputation as a seafood haven. With amazingly fresh lobsters, crayfish, oysters and shrimp, Gothenburg has plenty of offerings to tantalize.
Apart from its gastronomic offerings, Gothenburg also offers many entertainment options and beautiful landscapes. The city is a bustling centre of innovation and business. Visit the Universeum Science Discovery Centre, which is the biggest science centre in Scandinavia. The place for exciting family fun, the science centre is home to seven floors of educational exhibitions and interactive displays. Explore the indoor rainforest, or marvel at some of the largest aquariums in the whole of Europe.
For a true and historical Swedish experience, head over to the Swedish ship Gotheborg. A replica of an 18th century sailing ship, the Gotheborg is the largest of its kind that is still in operation. As a result, the ship only docks in the port of Gothenburg for a brief part of the year, and if you should happen to be in Gothenburg then, don’t miss out on the opportunity to join a guided tour of the ship! You can even learn how to be a crew member – taking night watch duties on the deck, or making the dangerous climb up the teetering rigging.
Discover Gothenburg at your own pace by biking around! The city is extremely bike-friendly, and you can reach most places with a bicycle. Visit parks like the Slottskogen or the Botanical Garden, or even the seaside. Both environmentally-friendly and a great opportunity to exercise, a bicycle is a prime mode of transportation to explore the city.
