Cruise to Stockholm
A SCANDINAVIAN PARADISE
tockholm—the capital of Sweden and the caretaker of 760 years of magniﬁcent history— is also a real world cosmopolitan Mecca where contemporary charms and attractions rival its historical magniﬁcence. Countless art galleries, theaters and restaurants mix classic tradition with contemporary chic. The city’s architecture transitions seamlessly from the old to the new, all in a blend of yesterday and today that makes for a present-day partnership of its modern and open lifestyle, melded in a comfortable marriage with the living traditions of its history and culture. Certainly one of the best surprises for North American travelers on Baltic Sea cruises is waking up to the incredible beauty of Sweden and its charming, centuries-old Baltic port city of Stockholm, where a port visit will almost certainly lure cruisers back for a pre- or post-cruise stay or even a stand-alone vacation stay on a future trip. Stockholm sits amidst an aquatic womb of an archipelago, sprawling across 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The majestic city wears the archipelago’s 30,000 islands and rocky islets like a grand necklace, inviting its residents and visitors alike to bask in the beauty of this aquatic playground. The island group getaway of Fjaderholmarna is just a 20-minute boat ride away from the city-center. Here, too, is Vaxholm, a picture-perfect, turn-of-the-last-century town with its charming pastel-colored wooden buildings waiting to be explored. Stockholm’s 760-year-old Gamla Stan (Old Town) is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city-centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. The district’s narrow, winding cobblestone streets snake their way through a fascinating and irresistible collection of restaurants, cafes, bars, museums and places to shop for handicrafts, curios and souvenirs. In the following pages, there’s all this and more including in-depth information on attractions, magniﬁcent historical and contemporary museums, city parks, ABBA and “Millennium” tours, boat sightseeing tours and dining. All of the wonderful and fascinating Stockholm vacation experiences you can develop for clients are all waiting for you in this in-depth Cruise Stockholm Travel Planner.
