Ah, Sweden's pride, the magnificient royal warship Vasa.. Sunk on her maiden voyage. :-) Vasamuseet is a museum built around the Vasa ship although they have another items on display as well. The ship is really huge and definitely worth seeing.

I join to recommend to see the Wasa ship and the old town. In the old town, there are plenty og smalla boutiques and cosy coffeehouses. These are the best places in Stockholm, otherwise it is like any big city - high houses and busy traffic.

I love Lush store! They sell fresh handmade cosmetics and the boutique is definitely wicked! I love the smell and the colours and the products. My favorite is sonic death monkey soap and I visit this store every time I'm in Stockholm. They have stores in Götgatan 26, Södermalm; Centralstation and Stureplan

this hotel is situated to world's biggest IKEA!!! if you're visiting stckholm with a car, i recommend this hotel, otherwise it may be quite far away from the city center... the hotel is not dirt-cheap, the prices are quite the same as in Finland. hotel rooms are comfortable and very quiet and the staff is very friendly!
Lovely hotel downtown Stockholm just a few steps away from central railway station and Sergel's Torg. Hotel is comfortably decorated with velvet wall papers and cat themed paintings. Beds are comfortable and service friendly, overall a very excellent experience if you are looking for a good night in Stockholm.

Belgobaren in the first floor of Hotel Freys has the largest collection of Belgina beer in whole of scandinavia.
To add to the experience, Belgobaren also serves excellent dishes from giant burgers to swedish specialities. If you have dislike for hotel restaurants, this is the place to visit and see a brilliant exception.

It has been a few years since I have been here last time, but I remember that the Viking Boat is a horrible thing :D It makes you feel so ill!
In the early Autumn, when the nights are allready dark, the park is looking interesting because of the colorful lights.
