Marco Polo Stockholm: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips

Golden-yellow town houses glowing warmly in the clear Nordic light, magnificent Renaissance buildings bearing witness to prosperity, shrieking seagulls circling over skerry steamers. Stockholm: radiant capital of the North, is a fascinating place – especially because of all that water that glitters in the sun, and turns to ice in winter. 

With MARCO POLO Stockholm you’ll experience a city of unrivalled contrast. Cosmopolitan Stockholm, where the wilderness reaches into the centre and where elks occasionally lose their way in the streets, also has a surprising Mediterranean touch. This practical, pocket-sized guide leads you between magnificent buildings to street cafés 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 taste of the various different aspects of the Swedish capital: from a walnut baguette breakfast in Södermalm to the trendy Sofo quarter with its little shops, and a relaxing evening in the Gondolen bar, floating above the city’s rooftops.

The Best Of pages highlight some unique aspects of Stockholm, recommend places to go for free, contain tips for rainy days and where you can relax and chill out. 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.
