Its been long long time since I wrote about my travel in Stockholm.
The city Stockholm in general is not big enough that you ned to take public transport or taxi for travelling within the city. Everywhere you turn there are shops and shopping is a big industry here. After the first day where I had to get used to surroundings, I never took the tram or bus. From the place I was staying I walked about close to 7kms to visit Skansen. Skansen is a museum which has been modelled in a large space to showcase old age technique of making furniture, metal objects, glass. This also depicts the models of home in those times, windmills, bank. There also lot of scandanavian animals. Among the animals is also cows!!
There are lot more musuems, one for war times, one for art. Depending on your interest you can visit museum of your choice.
Nothing comes for free, so all museums charge a entry fee.
The most tourist spot in Stockholm is Gama Stan. GamaStan is old town and buildings inside this section have not changed with time. There is also a German church with a bit of history. And its also pleasant to take a long walk along the river.
Of course there is no need to fear of being mugged the city is always full of life. Yes, walking down the remote areas one can feel afraid with no one around but within another 5mins you can be at the one of the cross roads and there are lot of vehicles and people.
I walked more than 20 odd kms in Stockholm and of course if you are feeling tired sit down on benches provided in public places. This is one good thing to have benches to park yourself!!
Nightlife is very much there like any other city in Europe. In nightclub’s smoking is not allowed inside and if you are smoker you need to go to the road and if its cold at night you can be shaking. Probably this is a way to discourage smoking also and its good for non-smokers inside the club. Of course there are cops everywhere and no need to fear walking in the night. But as always be careful.
Stockholm is definitely a nice city to visit and for no reasons it is called best Capital city of the world.
