First Impressions

Upon arriving at Arlanda International Airport, I realized quickly how different Stockholm would be compared to other cities. It's a city of lazy swiftness where details come and go non-chalantly as everything is cluttered, though not sloppy. Stockholm to me is a city where everything gradually comes to focus as you make sense of its color, beauty, and charm.

The Many Museums of Stockholm

Such as the Nordiska Museum here, there are many interesting museums with lots of great artifacts about Swedish Culture. With a Stockholm Tourist Card, your public transportation and visits to most musuems are paid for.

Highlight of Stockholm

In my opinion, anyone who has traveled to Stockholm cannot leave without having visited the Vasa Museum. This reconstructed ship which sunk in the 1600s is amazingly huge and really places ones curiosities back in time.

Please do not leave Stockholm without having been here.
