  Arlanda Airport
by polardabar

Coming to Stockholm might be a problem as well as piece of a cake. But luckily the Swedish transportation system works quite perfect, so keep that in mind. In the following couple of tips I'm gonna try to fill you in on the usual & the easiest ways to come to this city.

Flying to Stockholm is easy, but getting to the city from the airport might be a bit hard, depending on where you're flying to. Arlanda is both Stockholm's & Uppsala's airport, built right in the middle between those two. It's the biggest airport, has the most flights & the best connections. Flygbussarna will take you to cities around the airport, from Stockholm to Uppsala. A one-way bus ticket costs 89 SEK [owners of ISIC cards pay 59 SEK] & a return ticket costs 170 SEK. They drive pretty often, but check the times in advance, so that you're at the airport on time. The buses leave from Stockholm City terminal, located right next to Centralen.

Arlanda Express is a faster, but more expensive mean of transportation to & from Arlanda. A one-way ticket costs 190 SEK, but if you're under 25, you pay only 100 SEK & you can get the tickets on machines also. Considering the fact that the bus is only 11 SEK cheaper, I advise you to take the train [if you're eligible for the discounted ticket]. It pays off, especially because the train only takes 20 minutes to Stockholm Centralen & it doesn't stop. So just sit comfortably & enjoy the ride!

Taxis are unbelievably expensive, so a one-way ride to / from Arlanda can cost you up to 800 SEK! I wouldn't advise that unless you're in an unbelievable hurry. The train is cheap & comfortable enough...
