    Default Stockholm trip

    Hi,

    Will be going to Stockholm on a business trip in August 06. Anyone got any ideas on what to shoot/ places to visit, cause I might have some time or a few days when I can go around.

    Thanks for your suggestions in advance!

    Gamla Stan is not to be missed! I love the small cobbled lanes.

    Stockholm pictures are those towards the end of the series, in sepia tones.

    Those are solid pictures! Thanks for the advice. Since I will be unlikely to extend my trip, should I just stay in Stockholm and explore the city? or travel out for a day or 2? Any nice day trip to consider?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Stockholm by itself is already nice to explore. I'd personally suggest 2 days in stockholm.

    You can go around the areas like Uppsala. I've never been there before, but people said it's an university town.

    If you have many days to spare, I'd highly recommend you reserve 2-3 days on a trip to Gotland, an island off Sweden east coast. You can see some of the pictures in the link I've given above. You have to take a train to Nynashamn (~1hr from stockholm central station), then a ferry (3-4hrs) to Visby, Gotland. It's like stepping back in time, imagine an old town with cobbled streets and really nice and cosy old buildings. When you're there, you should spend a day driving north towards Faro and get some really really awesome scenery and the coastal drive overlooks magnificient limestone formation.. Should you need more information regarding this, let me know.
