We know Stockholm inside out here at Stockholm today but it is always nice to read the tips from someone with a different perspective and looking at Stockholm from the outside in.
Probably one of the best sources of tips you can get is from the fellow named Nomadic Matt. A well know world traveler excelling at traveling comfortable but still on a budget.
His Stockholm guide is written for budget travelers by a budget traveler, cheaper options for food, activities, and accommodation in Stockholm
From Nomadic Matt:
Stockholm can be traveled to on a cheap budget. How do I know? I’ve done it. I went there and spent only $20 USD per day.
One of the best tips from Nomadic Matt is to use the public transportation system with reduced ticket prices for day cards.
Get transportation passes – Stockholm metro tickets are costly but you can buy a transportation card for 325 SEK that’s valid for seven days (46 SEK per day) and unlimited use. There’s also a 72-hour pass for 250 SEK. While the city is incredibly walkable (I rarely, if ever, take the train), if you plan on taking the subway or buses, be sure to get a pass. All you need to do is use the train twice a day to make the pass a better value than individual tickets. And chances are, if you use the train once, you’ll use it twice.
I’ve been to Stockholm dozens of times, lived there, and speak a little Swedish (it’s just a pretty language!). I know the city like the back of my hand and used my personal experience to write this direct and straightforward guidebook.
