    We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top tips on what is unmissable in Stockholm. Here's what you told us...



    Discover the Vasa Museum

    Eleanor Venables says:

    The Vasa Museum! I spent an entire afternoon there. It's incredible!

    Nata Cherkashyna says:

    Vasamuseet.

    Juan Ignacio Simagona says:

    The Vasamuseet is a must-see.

    Shannon Patrick O'Connor says:

    When in Stockholm, you must go to the Vasa Museum and see the incredible war ship that was built in the 1600s, sunk on its maiden voyage and raised from its watery grave in the 1900s, and is now here for the world to see. This place was incredible!

    Rita Fratta says:

    Undoubtedly, the Vasa Museum!

    Juan Ignacio Simagona says:

    Vasamuseet.

    Nicolas Synnott says:

    Vasa Museum.

    Cody Irons says:

    Agreed - Vasa Museum.



    See the Kungsträdgården in bloom

    Dayana Alonso says:

    Everyone that's heading now to Stockholm go to Kungsträdgården and see the cherry blossoms! It's beautiful.



    See the city by boat

    Kerstin Patzsch says:

    A boat trip to Drottningholm Palace.

    Erika Zanella says:

    The boat trip through the floodgate!






    Spend the day at Skansen open-air museum and zoo

    Claudia Rossato says:

    Skansen...amazing.

    Elo Furias says:

    Skansen.

    Monica Cesar says:

    If it is possible, Skansen (at midsummer celebration).



    Explore the Södermalm neighbourhood

    Ignacio Hutin says:

    Södermalm, a very cool neighborhood with balconies [and] a nice view of Gamla Stan.





    Make the most of the buses

    Ali Humphreys says:

    Last year I went on the city sightseeing buses, two different routes; I would recommend them as a great way to see the city and get an idea of where everything is and what to do whilst there, such a beautiful city!



    Get to know Gamla Stan

    Kristína Jakubíková says:

    Gamla Stan!

    Daniel Eduardo Lurie says:

    Gamla.

    Juan Ignacio Simagona says:

    Definitely the beautiful Old Town!

    Jonas Johansson says:

    Old Town.



    See as much of the city as you can

    Dayana Alonso says:

    When you're in Stockholm you take thé bus to Kaknästornet, where your have the best view of Stockholm. After that take the bus to Djurgården Skansen (good for a family trip); from Djurgården you can take a ferry to Slussen. Nice to see Stockholm from the sea level. Getting off at Slussen, you have Gamla Stan to spend a few hours in. Make sure to go to the Old Town Square where you can have a nice stop for food and drinks.
    One must is to head to Mosebacken to see the panoramic view over Stockholm.
    If you're more of a athletics person I would suggest you to rent a bike (city bikes) and start in Medborgaplatsen and just follow the bike lane down to Slussen; pass the big old castle, forward to Kungsträdgården, over to Skeppaholmen where you will see the Old Town/castle from the sea. Continue out to Strandvägen and head out to Djurgården where your have Vasa and Skansen.
    If you want to continue you can get to Kaknästornet by not turning right at the big bridge that takes you to Skansen.
    If there's not much time take the hop-on-and-off boat or bus - an easy way to see the wonderful town.

    Jasmine Adu-Atwere says:

    As already mentioned, the Vasa Museet and the Old Town. But there are numerous museums you could visit. You should also take the trains or buses to the outskirts of Stockholm like down south or up north. Places like Sigtuna or Uppsala are worth seeing. Another nice place to visit would be the cemetery in the south, with a guided tour. I have never seen a cemetery that is so happy and open like this one! And the last thing...take a boat to the little islands that belong to Stockholm...wonderful in spring time.

    Neslihan Kol says:

    Skansen, Vasa Museum, Gamla Stan...[in short], all of Stockholm.



    Get around on wheels

    Shannon Patrick O'Connor says:

    Rent a bike to explore Stockholm. The city is really spread out and renting a bike will help you to see a much greater amount of this wonderful city in a shorter amount of time.








    And that's not all... You can find even more great tips from our Facebook fans here and here. Hopefully these top tips will help you make to most of your visit to Stockholm.
