5. Stockholm: Bus or Bus & Boat Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
Explore the Swedish capital by open-top bus and boat. With regular departures at all stops, choose how much time you wish to spend immersed in the history and culture of each fascinating site.
Stockholm boasts a 700-year-old history and is the epicenter of Swedish culture, dotted with grand public buildings and palaces. The 24-hour pass grants access to buses and boats that will take you to the highlights of the picturesque city's sightseeing circuit.
Visit the vast Stockholm Palace, the official residence of the Swedish Royal Family, and the City Hall where the annual Nobel Prize banquet is held. Discover beautiful gothic churches and explore the city's key museums, including the Vasa Museum, home to the tragic 17th-century warship, and Skansen zoo.
Buses cover the Old Town area and the trendy SoFo district at Södermalm, with its many bars and boutiques. Art and literature exhibitions abound, with readings and concerts at the controversially modern-looking Kulturhuset.
Participants looking to splash out will enjoy the NK/Hamngatan shopping district. Strändvagen offers leading restaurants to quell the deserved appetites of the intrepid tourist, with regular boat cruises of the scenic archipelago to boot.
