Things to do in Stockholm. There are many interesting places well known and loved by tourists and also those less famous where without the crowds you can sit on a bench or grass in the park and admire the capital of Sweden. Stockholm can easily be explored on foot. You can see sights, museums, churches, viewpoints, parks and other interesting places walking down the streets of the city.

I like Stockholm because outside the center was a quiet and peaceful city. The modern housing estate in Stockholm - Hammarby Sjöstad, was established in post-industrial areas.

Stockholm is a very interesting city for architecture lovers. Discovering Stockholm on foot is a great experience. Get off the main streets to the side and there between the residential buildings you will find true architectural wonders. Amazing the semi-circular building and park Fatbursparken.

M/S Birger Jarl - Hotel & Hostel, Stockholm

Cheap hostel very close to the center of Stockholm. The hotel is on the ship next to the Photographic Museum (Fotografiska) in Stockholm.

You can choose from a variety of cabin options from the cheapest multi-person room without bathroom, to cabin with window and bathroom - very different standards and prices.

The rooms are small but the proximity to the center and the waterbus stop (just behind the stern of the ship) are very good.

Free WiFi

The breakfasts were good.
