Stockholm weekend breaks
Being built on 14 islands Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden has become known as the Venice of the North. The Stockholm islands are connected by bridges giving easy walking access to all the main tourist sights and gardens. Although Sweden is cold in the winter, Stockholm is the perfect city for long weekend
breaks in the summer when other destinations in the south of Europe are just to hot for walking around all day. The old town is a must for some real character, wooden houses on cobbled streets and very clean like the rest of Stockholm. On long weekend breaks in Stockholm visit the Royal Place, Storkyrkan Cathedral, Drottningholm Palace and also the 500 feet high Kaknas TV Tower, the view of the city from above is spectacular! Before you leave, a Stockholm weekend break should include a boat trip round the Archipelago
of islands that make this city unique for short mini holidays. The Swedish Krona is low at the moment meaning you get much more for your pound on a trip to Stockholm.
Stockholm flights arrive into Stockholm Arlanda Airport where there is a regular express train (journey time 20mins) and a bus sevice (journey time 40mins) which connect to the city center.
Private transfers to your Stockholm hotel can be booked in advance.
