Our first couple of days were basically wasted as we tried to get the hang of the train system but never really felt comfortable enough to get too far, afraid we'd get hopelessly lost. And the hotel was attached to the airport and not close to ANYTHING. Walking anywhere was not happening. UGH!
So we boarded the boat and headed to Stockholm. Got a great sunset photo while sitting on the balcony.
Discover a 17th-century warship, 13th-century Old Town and a village founded before Stockholm was even a city. Your guide will lead you through the sights of Old Town, including the majestic Royal Palace and Great Square, with time to explore on your own. See the mighty Vasa, rescued from the sea floor after three centuries and carefully restored. Then it's on to Sigtuna, an idyllic village with Sweden's oldest street and Scandinavia's smallest town hall.
GAH! This was a toilet on the sidewalk. No matter how dire the emergency, don't think I could go here!! HA
A runestone near one of the seriously old churches.
Inside, so beautiful!
And the Vasa warship, beautifully reconstructed. More to come...
