City Information

Stockholm

Sitting atop an archipelago that leads to the Baltic Sea, Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the Scandinavian countries. Boasting several rivers, waterways, and islands, the city offers many scenic locations for curious tourists. One of the city’s star attractions is the famous Old Town quarter, which was founded in 1252. The area features cobblestone streets as well as winding alleyways and colorful quaint houses with characteristic Scandinavian architecture. If you are interested in some history lessons, check out the Vasa Museum, which is completely housed in a sunken warship. For nature-lovers, don’t hesitate to visit Djurgården, which is an island located close to the city center and reachable by ferries. The island is a big green oasis that boasts a wide range of activities such as hiking, strolling, and picnicking.

Some of the most notable restaurants in Stockholm include Stockholm Gastabud and Agrikultur, both of which offer authentic Swedish dishes. For fusion dishes, don’t hesitate to check out Frantzen.

Main arrival station: Stockholm C (FlixTrain)

Stockholm Central is a large transit complex and the centre of railway transportation services in Stockholm. The palatial station first opened in 1871, and while its historic facade has been maintained, its interior has modernized significantly. If you take the metro from Central, don't miss the vivid murals in the subway tunnels. Besides the local metro, the station serves long-distance trains and commuter trains, plus coach service from the adjacent Cityterminalen stop. The sprawling complex includes a wide shopping hall under arched ceilings, restaurants, luggage lockers, restrooms, and plenty of seating. Be sure to arrive with plenty of extra time to find your platform in the massive station while gawking at some of the architecture along the way.
