This exhilarating two-minute ride takes you to 426 feet above sea level, where the "bubble" will stop for you to have ample time to marvel over the magnificent views of the city.
Continue your introduction tour of Stockholm at ground level with a panoramic drive covering the major sights. The Fjällgatan area, with its charming old houses and wonderful view of the city, sprawls over no less than 14 islands.
Watch for the enchanting medieval Gamla Stan Old Town with the Royal Palace overlooking Stockholm's inner harbor. Proceed past the Royal Dramatic Theatre along Strandvägen and past the island of Djurgården, home to Stockholm's amusement and recreation center with great parklands and beautiful gardens.
You will visit the famous Vasa Museum. The warship Vasa was the pride of ancient Sweden's mighty navy, but she sank in Stockholm's inner harbor on her maiden voyage in 1628. The discovery of the wreckage in 1956, and subsequent salvage in 1961, were among the most important events ever in maritime archaeology. Painstakingly restored to much of its original magnificence, the Vasa is an authentic piece of history and the fascinating museum is literally built around the 17th-century warship.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. You will have approximately 45 minutes of free time to shop or purchase a snack or lunch at your own expense. The coach transfer back to Nynäshamn is unguided.
