Stockholm can be a fascinating city to visit with its cultural traits, attractions and the beautiful archipelago. A few travel tips will come in handy before visiting, so you will be more prepared for the trip. You can start by stocking up on Swedish Krona (SEK), whether purchased before your holiday or at the airport. You will soon find that most places take all major credit and debit cards as well, so walking around with cash is not necessary. While coming through Arlanda Airport, it can also be a good idea to stop by the Visitor Center in Terminal 5, where you can find top travel tips for attractions in Stockholm.
Getting from Arlanda Airport to central Stockholm is made easy using the Arlanda Express shuttle train. The distinguishable yellow-tipped train departs every 10-15 minutes, taking 20 minutes nonstop to reach the Central Station. Many local attractions can be reached on foot from the Central Station, like for example Gamla Stan which is just 10 minutes away. On longer stays, purchasing a metro travel card can be efficient and affordable as the metro system is well-connected all through the city.
The city center is composed of many individual islands, and visitors will find major sights such as the Royal Palace, Fotografiska museum of photography and the Vasa Museum. The city has a Visitor Center at the House of Culture at Sergels Torg Square, where you can enquire for more Stockholm travel tips.
