Berlitz Pocket Guide Stockholm is a concise, full-colour travel guide that combines lively text with vivid photography to highlight the very best that this creative city has to offer.
The Where To Go chapter details all the key sights. Start with a boat tour to get your bearings round the city that floats on water, then walk over to the Old Town and its picturesque cobbled lanes, winding alleys, mansions, palaces and soaring spires before heading to the Royal Palace just in time for the Changing of the Guard. There are also excursions to the exquisite Drottningholm Palace, dubbed the Versailles of Sweden, and historic Uppsala. Handy maps on the cover help you get around with ease.
To inspire you, the book offers a rundown of the Top 10 Attractions in the city, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Day in Stockholm. The What to Do chapter is a snapshot of ways to spend your spare time, from shopping for design Scandi home furnishings and glassware to catching some outdoor entertainment in the famous open-air museum of Skansen.
Youll also be armed with background information, including a brief history of the city and an Eating Out chapter covering its fresh, healthy cuisine. There are carefully chosen listings of the best hotels and restaurants, and an A-Z to equip you with all the practical information you will need.
