Since shifting to Linköping, Sweden earlier in August, I always wanted to visit Stockholm. It’s nearly end of summer season type so I thought first week of September should be great time to visit, expecting relatively less tourist and nice weather. Flix Bus and Nettbuss has multiple direct buses to Stockholm from Linköping. Both, Linköping and Stockholm intercity, local bus and train station is middle of town. I took early morning (4:40 AM !) bus and reached Stockholm by 7:30 AM. After sitting / sleeping in bus, it was time to start WALKING. Yes, Since everything in central Stockholm near by, walking is great way to explorer the place. I walk 15+ km on both days.
Gamla Stan – The old town of Stockholm, has many palace, museums and churches to see apart from gorgeous old buildings. I visited many places in and around Gamla Stan. I also visited Drottningholm Palace, which has very nice garden and lake front. Central Stockholm has many shopping places and restaurants. Traveling in old trams has it’s own experience. I don’t know how my time flew. I took 7:40 PM bus from Stockholm and was back in Linköping around 10 PM. It was weekend well spent.
