Attractions

paragraph image
Stockholm is an amazing city with a lot of options for sight seeing and activities.


 
Climate

The most amazing feature of a visit to Stockholm during summer are the blue nights: it never gets completely dark.
Most people think the climate is cold, dark and wet. Reality is different: you might enjoy sunny, warm and dry weather. (We still recommend to bring an umbrella, just in case.)

Currency

The currency in Sweden is the Kronor meaning "crowns" (SEK). Foreign currency may be exchanged at banks, exchange offices and ATMs.
