Stockholm, Sweden


Stockholm is one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved mediaeval city centers, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction. Stockholm offers a wealth of museums, theatres, sights, attractions and events, whether your interest lies in history, art, opera, modern dance, traditional handicraft, contemporary design or virtually anything else.


Port Orientation

There are two possible docking places. The best place to dock is virtually right in town. On congested cruise ship days, some vessels wind up at the city's commercial port, about a 20-minute ride from the heart of Stockholm.



Regardless of docking spot, cruise ships generally offer shuttles to the center of Stockholm. There are taxis available from the port the cost is approximetly $5 - 10. From the commercial terminal plan to pay about $20 each way.


The City is very walkable or there are ferries available.



Stop by a must see, Gamla Stan (The Old Town).  The history here dates back to the 15th century. Of course there is shopping here as well.

You can take a tour of the city.  Either through canal tours or walking tours.
