A walking tour in modern city centre

What was the reason why Stockholm was appointed Green Caital of Europe 2010? How come downtown Stockholm has such a special architecture? How do the Stockholmers live today with the sustainable growth in this fast growing city? - A modern city walk through 4 major parts of Stockholm.


We meet outside the main Tourist Office in Stockholm City Centre and walk through the city's modern parts while I narrate and highlight special buildings and sites. Modern and old parts come together in a good story as we walk along the streets and parks. Meet 20th century Stockholm as well as 17th century areas and after a quick boat ride, ending at one of the "must Cs" in Stockholm, the Skansen open air museum.
As far as starting times, I am somewhat flexible, so please send me a message and we'll discuss the most appropriate starting time!
