Stockholm for a weekend

Day 1

Departure: 8:00 am from the station towards Linköping Stockholm by bus (the cheapest, counted on average 150Kr for a ride).

Arrival: 11:00 to Stockholm Central Station.

Once we arrived we bought the bus/metro card to travel in the capital. The best deal if you make more than 7 trips it’s 72h unlimited card.

Once the card is purchased we can visit Stockholm toward the sights to see (thanks to the “Maria’s Guide”, one of my  corridormate she was Erasmus student in Stockholm).

We start towards Gamla Stan. The old Stockholm. Paved street, souvenir shop, The Royal Palace, Tyska kyrkan, Post-museum. Nice for walking. We saw the changing of the guard by luck (Saturday at noon). I do not know if it’s all Saturdays at noon …

Lunch was at Va Piano, (Thanks Maria), very nice place and not too expensive for a pizza or pasta.

After a good meal we went to our hotel. We opted for the Formule 1 which is at Telefonplan stop.

To end the day, walk on Kungsholmen island: Stadshusset and the shores. Finally ride at Östermalm (pretty little square with a fountain). We ate in Sergels Torg street, not far from the station we found a mall with stalls of all nationalities to eat.
