Practical Information in Stockholm

Edit This
Tourist information: Here you will get all informations about the city you want and a decent city map as well (15 kr). The main office (open Mon - Fri from 9am to 6pm, Sat and Sun from 9am to 3pm) is on Hamngatan in Norrmalm, on the ground floor of Sverigehuset. Tel. 08 - 789 24 90

Stockholm Card: Very useful, gives unlimited travel on city transports (except airport and ferry buses), free museum entry and discounts on boat trips and tours (sold at the tourist offices). Prices: 199 kr for 24 hours, 398 kr for 48 hours, 498 kr for 72 hours.

Bank opening hours: Mon - Fri 9.30am to 3pm, on thursdays also 4pm - 5.30pm. Outside banking hours check the post offices or Växel/Currency Exchange offices. Bankomat machines give cash advances and accept all major credit cards.

Phone calls: For international phone calls you add 00 and the international prefix. Most public phones only accept phonecards and credit/debit cards. The smallest phonecard cost 30SEK so if you only need to call one time it is better to use your card. The international dialing to Sweden is +46 with the first 0 omitted.

Avoid: Going to any of the trendy bars in the city centre. First you have to q to get in, the prices are ridiculous, the locals are absolutely despicable and the bouncers at the doors seem to have all had lobotomies or iq's well below the average.

Sweden: The country is totally fantastic fron June to August then the weather turns nasty and cold. It's as if the whole country gets covered with a dark, wet and cold blanket. Swedish women are goodlooking and reasonable smart, seem to be very feministic at first. A few words of warning; once they have got a nice house, with all mod cons, a babe or two, a Volvo/ SAAB their feministic opinions seem to change to man hating. I really wish that I could say I was alone in saying this but I've spoken to enough foreign guys who are married to Swedish women and many tell the same tale.
