What's Stockholm Like?
Stockholm is a city where the modern world meets history within an idyllic archipelago and tourists will find a variety of unique attractions here. A number of highly interesting museums are available for tourists to visit, such as the Moderna Museet, an art museum dedicated to the artwork from the beginning of the 20th century up through contemporary works, including pieces from Picasso, Salvador Dali, Derkert, and Matisse. The museum offers a children's workshop and has exhibits throughout the year. Visitors can relax at the museum's restaurant after taking in the exhibits. The Vasa Museum chronicles the life of the Vasa, a Swedish warship which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628 and was salvaged in 1961. The ship has been painstakingly restored and showcases ten different exhibits based on everyday life aboard the ship. Drottningholm Palace has been the official residence of the Swedish Royal Family since 1981 and was commissioned by a queen in the 1600's. A magnificent Baroque-style garden soon followed in 1681 and there is also a theater on the campus that still often uses the original 17th-century equipment.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Stockholm
One attraction locals enjoy is the Vitabergsparken, a local park that offers impressive views of Stockholm and tours of a local church. Sweden has a surprising large amount of film buffs, so a popular location to view would be the Cinemateket, which has an impressive listing of programming. At times, silent films will even be accompanied by a live pianist. Stockholm has a fairly decent public transportation system, which they call the Tunnelbana, or T-Bana for short. Getting tickets for this is generally not difficult, but it's probably best to purchase a multi-journey ticket so that you are able to use the buses as well. An area that is popular with the locals during the winter is the Kungsträdgården, which is a skating rink where individuals can rent skates and enjoy the rink without any time limit. During your visits around Stockholm you might notice several things: you might notice the name "Bellman" popping up here and there. Bellman was the last name of an 18-century Swedish poet renowned for his early descriptions of Stockholm. You might also notice more men pushing baby carriages then usual. This is because men are allowed to take time off work with pay for the first six months of their child's life in Sweden. You can trust Hotels.com for all of your hotel listing information.
