If you haven't already booked a city break from Shannon Airport to Stockholm, the post below, thanks to one of our passengers, may tempt you to do just that!!
'Stockholm is a beautiful city really laid back and really easy to get around, you can walk to a lot of the major attractions.
Take the Arlanda Express from Arlanda Airport to Stockholm which takes 20 minutes and runs every 10 minutes and on time. You can buy your ticket buy your ticket at the Arlanda Express office at the airport there was a special deal if you bought two return tickets approx €35 per return ticket but this is only up to the end of August, the normal return is approx €50.
-Buy a ticket on the Hop on Hop off bus to cover a few days, it’s great and stops off at all the major locations and you can get on and off at any time.
-Go on a cruise, Stockholm is surrounded by islands and bridges connecting the islands. You can walk over to the islands but go on a cruise from the Big Red cruise which takes 60 minutes or a longer more serious cruise.
-Most restaurants will not take cash they take credit cards however shops do take cash and some restaurants in Galma Stan take cash.
-Eating and drinking is more expense than here but there are plenty of restaurants to choose from and they vary in price.
-If booking a hotel make sure to include breakfast.
Places to visit
-The Royal Palace and old Stockholm town – Galma Stan. They are both on the same island and easy to walk to and really beautiful.
-One of the top attractions is the Vasa Museum and it is excellent, beside the Vasa Museum is the Vikingaliv Museum which is a new 2017 interactive museum also very good and for Abba fans the Abba Museum is just beside the Vikingaliv Museum all within easy walking distance. They are all on in Djurgården and on the Hop on Hop off bus route.
-The Hop on Hop off bus is great and it brings you to all the major attractions but a lot are within walking distance from the centre of the city.'
