Sigtuna Travel Guide: 71 reviews and 228 photos

I first visited Sigtuna with some classmates from SFI (Swedish for immigrants) when we went over to one of their houses for girl talk and some food.

Then today I felt a little bored, took my SL card and hit Sigtuna Stad. What an amazing place to go for, not far from home but still like in another time. It truly lives up to Sweden's oldest (still inhabited) city. A must do for viking and history lovers.

    ¿Conoces una ciudad que se llama Mariefred, merece la pena Sigtuna?

    Cute town indeed :-)) It is high on my list for my "next time" in Sweden. Have you been to Mariefred yet - this is heaven for you if you like these old phone booths and "old Sweden" :-))
