Stockholm is dramatically situated right where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. The city is divided into the districts of Sodermalm, Gamla Stan, Norrmalm, Östermalm and Djurgården—each with its own special character. Crossing Gamla Stan, the enchanting, medieval Old Town, you will pass the Parliament Building, the Cathedral and the Royal Palace overlooking Stockholm’s inner harbor. See the Royal Opera House and, via the narrow canal at Slussen, you will cross to Södermalm Island on Stockholm’s south side. Take a photo from Fjällgatan with its magnificent panoramic view of the city. The Western Bridge spanning Riddarfjarden offers extensive views of the city skyline and City Hall. You’ll drive through the diplomatic area and through Östermalm—a fashionable neighborhood of stately buildings—en route back to the ship.
This tour has been designed for scenic viewing from the motor coach only; however, the coach will stop for photo opportunities. Participants must be able to climb onto and off the motor coach.
