This morning your driver and guide will meet you on the pier.
Begin with a tour of Gamla Stan (Old Town) to explore the narrow winding streets and historic buildings. Storkyrkan, the Great Church, is set in the heart of Old Town. Dating back to the early 1500’s the Lutheran church is Gothic design and has been the setting for numerous Royal weddings.
Continue onto Djurgården, a natural resort in the heart of Stockholm. Here you will visit the Vasa Museum. This is Scandinavia’s most visited museum, for its maritime history and Housing of the Vasa warship. The Vasa, perhaps the grandest and most ambitious ship ever to be built in Sweden, is the city’s prized treasure. She capsized and sank straight to the bottom on her maiden voyage in the 17th century only to be salvaged nearly 333 years later in 1961.
Your guide will also take you to the Nordiska Museum, housed in a spectacular Renaissance designed building from the late 1800s. The ethnographic museum details the customs and traditions of Swedes over the past 1,000 years. Items include clothing, jewelry, furniture, table place settings and folk art.
