Where to go what to do?

Hi

Im off for 4 days with my boyfriend to Stockholm I want find out what are the best tourist sights/must see things to do as well as reccommendations on good restaurtants, bars, clubs and shopping for me of course. Do you have to book the Ice Bar in advance and is it better going at night or during day? Also whats the public transport like what tickets do you get just to cover for a couple of days

Thanks

4 days you lucky thing!!! Stockholm is one of my favourite cities as I spent 8 days there in June 2006. When are you going?

Fist on the list has got to be The Vasa Museum. WE spent over 2 hours there as we were both enthralled with the place and my hubby loves ships :-)

2. Explore Gamala Stan the old town with all it's beautiful narrow streets and lanes.

3 Skansen is also a must. It's a great place to wander around with all it's traditional Swedish buildings. Most are original buildings that have been brought to the park. There is also a great zoo with all the animals you would find in Sweden.

3.The Royal Palace is very interesting and the changing of the guard takes place around Midday (not sure of the exact time) You also get entry to the Royal Museum with your ticket.

4.I would certainly take a boat trip around the city. Boats leave from outside the Royal Hotel (if memory serves me right). We also took a boat out to the islands which were beautiful in June!

5.My hubby loves music and he had great fun in the music museum wouldn't recommend it for a 4 day trip but since then The Abba museum has opened .........and when in Sweden!!!!! WE spotted Benny outside the national concert hall which was gas :-)

To be honest we didn't do too much shopping but make sure to visit NK . Hopefully locals will be able to offer you more advise on shopping and clubbing ;-)
