Experience all of Stockholm's attractions with this up-to date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. Discover beautiful hotels, authentic restaurants, the city's trendiest places and night spots, and also get tips on shopping and what to do with a limited budget. Also includes: Perfect Day, Festivals & Events, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Swedish Phrase Book and index. With MARCO POLO Stockholm you'll experience a cosmopolitan city where the wilderness reaches into the centre and where elks occasionally lose their way in the streets. This practical, pocket-sized guide leads you between magnificent buildings to street cafes where you get a blanket to keep warm, and along the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town, which, during the long summer nights, turn into party central. The Insider Tips reveal where you can visit the longest and deepest underground art gallery with a metro ticket, and where those with a sweet tooth can satisfy their desires.
The Perfect Day gives you a variety of experiences from the Swedish capital: from a walnut baguette breakfast in Sodermalm to the trendy Sofo quarter with its little shops, and a relaxing evening in the Gondolen bar, floating above the city's rooftops. Panels in each chapter of the main section suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where to pick up some real bargains. The City Walks chapter takes you to some lovely places: get to know Stockholm from the water or see some modern art in the former military facilities on Skeppsholmen island. Finally, the Dos & Don'ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the city. MARCO POLO Stockholm provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there's a detailed street atlas inside, a useful public transport map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
