Are you wondering what the "Must-Sees" of Stockholm are?
Throw all your previous plans overboard and spend the morning on this tour. It is guaranteed the must-sees in Stockholm will give you a wow-experience. Starting from Stortorget, or "The Main Square" in the Old Town (Gamla stan in Swedish), you will set out on a guided walk, diving into the history of the city. After exploring the hidden gems of the Old Town, board a public ferry for a short sailing between the islands and across the harbor to the island of Djurgården, where another treasure awaits. Of course speaking about one of the most visited museums in the country, The Vasa Museum. What is the Vasa Museum you ask? It is home to the world's oldest, most well-preserved ship (not to mention most impressive) – the grand warship “Vasa.”
Thinking about the Vikings? Think again! This beauty was built in the 1600s, during a time when the Swedish Empire was THE force to be reckoned with in Northern Europe! Feel like one of the distinguished guests invited to the maiden voyage as you skip the line at the Vasa Museum. Not only is the Vasa an artistic masterpiece, but she also has a fabulous story which the guide will share with you in the museum.
Before you end the tour inside and let you go explore on your own, the guide will give you the “lay of the land” and clue you into some of the top sights to see at the Vasa Museum.
