Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Trends in music, design, fashion, and technology are born here, and innovations that spread worldwide are invented here. Trendy bars and world-class restaurants are shoulder-to-shoulder with historic cafés and cozy neighborhood pubs. Stockholm is simultaneously urban and close to nature and water is an ever-present feature in this city where lake and sea meet. The atmosphere is open, tolerant and welcoming, and diversity and innovation are encouraged. Stockholm is a city for everyone.

Take a swim
The waterways of Stockholm are not only beautiful to look at, they are so clean and clear you can take a dip right in the middle of town. There are not a lot of cities in the world that can make that claim! There are several lovely beaches to bask on and cliffs to jump from around the city. Here are a few examples: Smedsuddsbadet This swimming beach at Rålambshov Park Beach is popular with families. Sun-worshipping Stockholmers choose neighboring Rålambshov Park instead. Långholmens bad Narrow beaches and several large rocks offer good swimming for the experienced. The green island of Långholmen is a popular destination for swimmers.

Public Transportation
Stockholm is often praised for its comfortable, efficient and safe transportation. Stockholm Public Transport, SL, is responsible for buses, underground trains, commuter trains, trams and certain ferry lines in Greater Stockholm. The underground is the easiest way to get around town. The city is divided into three zones, and zone tickets are good for several trips within the hour. Tickets can be purchased at SL Centers, underground platform barriers, newsagent kiosks or via SMS. It's not possible to pay cash for tickets on board buses in Stockholm. Most bus stops have ticket machines that take both coins and cards. Prepaid cards are the best alternative for those making few trips. It's also possible to buy 1, 3, or 7-day cards, which allow free travel in all zones during the validity period. A trip on the number 69 bus or number 7 tram is a superb way to discover Stockholm. The lines go out to Djurgården and major attractions like Skansen and the Vasa Museum. Stockholmers are always heedful of their beautiful surroundings, and this has led to many inner city buses running on eco-friendly fuels such as ethanol. The Stockholm underground is also known as the world's longest art gallery as so many of its stations are adorned with the works of different artists.
Local boat transportation
Travelling by local ferries is a fantastic way to experience a city built on islands. Ferries are used by both commuters and tourists wanting to take a better look around. There are ample ferry departures from Nybroviken and Slussen out to the leafy island of Djurgården. An SL Card includes ferries from Slussen and you can also buy single tickets on the quay.
Ferries and cruise ships
Several major ferry lines serve the countries around the Baltic Sea, and Stockholm's harbors are centrally located. Stockholm is also a popular cruise destination and every year around 300 cruise liners from all over the world put in to the city. The approach through the beautiful Stockholm archipelago with its 30,000 islands is an experience in itself. Read more about ferries and cruising to Stockholm below.
Taxi
There are many taxi companies to choose from in Stockholm. Approved taxis with metered fares always bear yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted. NOTE: Taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden; they may vary greatly. It is the customer’s responsibility to check prices beforehand. Check the price on the yellow-and-white label (pictured in the right corner above), which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle. The highest unit price of most taxis is between SEK 290 - 390. The price on the yellow label is based on a 10 km, 15-minute journey. The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor. For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport the major taxi companies have fixed prices of between SEK 450-500. Always ask the driver beforehand. In addition to the major taxi companies there are several independent firms; caution is adviced. You can easily get hold of a taxi by calling a taxi company, hailing one on the street or by taking a one from a rank, e.g. at NK on Hamngatan. There is a manned taxi centre at Central Station that can help you with finding the right service, e.g. if you need child seats in the vehicle. Several of the big Stockholm taxi companies have a very high proportion of eco-vehicles. A new rota system gives priority to cabs with low carbon emission levels.
Post Office
'Posten' no longer has post offices. Stamps are available for purchase at most kiosks, newsstands and convenience stores. Ask at the cash register.
