No reviews, be the first!

A sprawling archipelago jutting out into the Baltic sea, Sweden’s capital makes a dramatic location for a walking tour, but if you want to make the most of your sightseeing time, here are a few tips for getting around in Stockholm.

1. Trains and trams
Stockholm is rightly proud of its public transport network, run by Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) and renowned for being one of the fastest and most reliable in Europe. Buses, trains, Subway trains (T-bana) and trams serve all areas of the city, including the airport. All transport requires pre-bought tickets, although a better deal is to buy an SL Card, available for a number of different time periods or invest in a Stockholm Card, a special tourist pass that allows unlimited use of public transport along with free boat tours, discounts and admission to over 80 museums and sights in Stockholm.
