Swedes may have a reputation as rather reserved people but in fact they love to have a good time - and so should you, as you enjoy Stockholm's variety of cool things to do. If you can't escape into the Swedish countryside, head for Skansen and have a look at how Swedes lived in the days of yore at this open-air musuem. If you're in the city during the winter, definiteley stop by the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi. It's the very first of its kind, an architectural and structural masterpiece that melts away and is rebuilt every winter - so no year is exactly like the last. Tusen Oars Kryssningday is a day cruise on the century-old M/S Waxholm III. It's known as the Thousand Island Cruise and that's no exaggeration, as the Stockholm archipelago consists of more than 24,000 islands. Sydpoolen is a famous and unique weekend destination. Kids love the swimming pool, with its waves, currents, waterfall and slides. However long your stay in Stockholm, you'll find many cool things to do to fill your days.
