TRAVEL

Getting around

Though spread across 14 islands, Stockholm is surprisingly easy to navigate. Bridges connect most of the islands and ferries: the tunnelbana (metro) link the rest. Public transport runs to every corner of the city and surrounding areas. Walking or biking is often the best way to get around – check distances before setting out, as you might find you don't even need a bus or metro ticket.

City bikes, buses and the metro 

Stockholm’s Stockholms Local traffic (SL) is an efficient public transport system of buses, ferries, trains and trams which allows for quick travel. SL offers a 72 hour travel pass.

Climate

Despite its northern location, Stockholm has fairly mild temperatures throughout the year. As a result of its northerly latitude, the city sees a huge seasonal variation in sunlight, from more than 18 hours of daylight around midsummer in June. 

Currency, Credit Card and Exchanging Money

The currency in Sweden is called the Swedish crown, or the krona (SEK). Many stores are cashfree and accept only credit or debit cards. Forex is the place to exchange money or buy SEK. They are found throughout the city at 17 locations, including Arlanda and the Central train station. They have good exchange rates.
