Get to know Stockholm
Thanks to the Helsinki Times, I now know that the city is constructed over 14 separate islands, which means that there're a lot of bridges and walkways to check out. Isn't that interesting? Man's ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. The next time I go to Stockholm I'll definitely be looking at it through different eyes.
Make sure that you spend a bit of time pondering the wonder that is the Riddarholm Church, the oldest building that the city has to offer. It's situated next to the Stockholm Palace as well, so if your attention does start to drift it certainly won't go far. And the centre of the township - aside from all the shops of course - boasts the House of Culture and City Hall, which is where the Nobel Prizes are dished out. Something else I had no idea of! I guess it's true that every day's a school day.
And the sculpture garden - Millesgarden - is an attraction I have yet to have a look at but which is definitely included on my next travel itinerary. It's located on a cliff and overlooks a bay, which sounds like a great locale in which to appreciate fine art.
For a tour with a difference, consider going on the Sodermalm trip which takes tourists around and about the various places featured in Stieg Larsson's Millennium books. Fantastic!
