Stockholm weekend breaks
Stroll through Gamla Stan, the Old Town.
Sweden's capital city is referred to by the locals as "beauty on water" and it's no surprise why with its 14 individual islands that make up the city. The transition and transports to each of these islands are effortless and you should spend a day exploring the Old Town of Stockholm. This is one of Europe’s best preserved medieval city centres and you can wander the winding and narrow cobblestone streets, ponder at the beautiful architecture that highlights old colourful buildings and stop at a local coffee shop to indulge in a cup of 'Kaffe' whilst enjoy a fresh pastry. Soak up the atmosphere and feel the true essence of this beautiful city. If you prefer, you could take a 'free walking tour' to transport you around the Old Town whilst hearing all the historical significance of what you're viewing. Then when you're finished, return to your luxurious hotel for a good nights rest.
Explore Museum Island
Stockholm has a full island dedicated to all the wonderful museums you must visit on a weekend break to Stockholm. It's easy to spot from afar with its funfair rides and exhilarating rollercoasters.
