Sweden is not so expensive as you think!


How to spend less than 200 Euros for your trip to Stockholm?


Stockholm is one of the most expensive cities in the world, that is why many travellers on a budget are afraid of going there. I was one of them, however, I decided to take this risk.


By the way, it is a great idea to go there in winter. As this season is not high, the prices are lower. Even though it is quite cold there, it is still comfortable to travel.


First of all, find the cheapest tickets on Sky scanner. However, pay attention to the airport to which you come, as it may be situated in a different city. The two-way ticket for coaches from the airport to Stockholm costs approximately 30 €.


Secondly, you should definitely forget about luxury hotels. I can recommend the Generator hostel with four-bedroom.

Thirdly, the food in cafes and restraints is pretty expensive, starting from 10 €. Think about alternatives such as buying food in McDonald’s ~5€ and supermarkets ~ 6€.


And last, but not the least is attending the museums. My recommendations are Vasa Museum and Royal Palace. These are two most popular museums in Stockholm. By the way, don’t forget to show your student ID to get a discount!

You should also take two free tours: city tour and old city tours. Due to these tours you, you will be able to travel by foot, thus not to spend money on transport. You will find out lots of interesting facts about Stockholm and save your time. The concept of these tours is that you may give as much money as you think this tour deserves (~10€)
