It is always wonderful to see major construction that has lasted for so long. It is very peaceful and relaxing to be by the canals before starting again the rush of trying to see everything in this wonderful city.

Stockholm is the second best city to be built around canals. There are several ways to enjoy the canals of stockholm. Stroll around the bridges, take the city boats and then the private canal curises.

The canals in and around Stockholm are very important to the city's transportation system but are also fun for the visiting tourist. We ended up on a Hop On Hop Off that included boat trips (highly recommend Stromma, do NOT use "Red" Bus) and it...More
