Commuter Trains/Passes etc.

by Naramata

We will need to travel from Stockholm to Arla(Eskilstuna) for three of the five days that we will be in Sweden(6/6 - 6/11/10). Are there rail/commuter/transit passes that would also include the Arlanda Express? We may also use the underground to travel around Stockholm.

Re: Commuter Trains/Passes etc.

by marielexoteria

The Arlanda Express isn't covered by any pass, but you might get a small discount if you get the tickets online and sometimes they even have a 2 for 1 offer. The shuttles from Flygbussarna aren't covered by any pass either.

However, there's a travel card that covers all forms of transportation in Stockholm and that's the one provided by SL. Go to www.sl.se, choose "Other languages" and look for the 72-hour (or 3-day) card.

To go to Eskilstuna, look into SJ: www.sj.se or Swebus: www.swebusexpress.se.

Re: Commuter Trains/Passes etc.

There is a way to get to Arlanda by the SL card that Mariel mentions and that is to catch a commuter train to Märsta and then the ORDINARY Arlanda bus from their (i.e. not the designated airport buses which is a private company). That however takes time - check the SL page she gave you.

As for Eskilstuna, the trains are run by the Swedish state railways SJ indeed, but there is a specific commuter arrangement for the lake Mälaren region which is called TiM (Transport in Mälaren) and includes both SL and SJ plus others:

Not sure what they can offer for just a few days though.

Getting lost

by hevbell

on our first day of sightseeing we wound up getting on the correct bus but going the wrong way. Yeah we're that idiotic! We did realise straight away but it didn't seem so bad when we got off to change buses and found ourselves opposite this pretty fountain. sometimes its not really getting LOST, its just unexpected sightseeing!

Tre Kroner Museum is not a "must see"

by wadekorzan

The Museum Tre Kroner is part of the complex of museums located at the Royal Palace in Gamla Stan.
What you'll find inside is:
1. foundations of the 13th century defensive walls
2. exhibits which were rescued when the original castle was destroyed in 1697 (by fire)
3. coins
4. animal bones
5. a model of the original castle
...and other stuff like this...it's not the most exciting museum actually...

The entrance fee is 70 Swedish Krone, but it's a better deal if you buy the "combination ticket" for 110 Swedish Krone. This gets you into the Tre Kroner Museum, Royal Apartments, the Treasury, and Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities.

Gustav Vasa

The history of Stockholm
~~~~~~
Gustav Vasa


Gustav Eriksson (Vasa) was the first of the Vasa dynasty (1496 -1560). He was Swedish King from 1523. He was the founder of modern Sweden and a beloved monarch, but also a tough guy. One of his major 'accomplishments' was to take away the power of the Catholic Church in Sweden and turn into a Lutheran state owned church. He confiscated the possessions of the Catholic Church, which made him able to pay the Swedish debts caused by a lot of warfare.
Another accomplishment was that he managed to get the parliament to agree to a law that made the throne inheritable and by doing that he became a sovereign ruler of Sweden. Before this time they used to elect the kings, or just battle about it of course, lol ;-)
He actually was never called Gustav Vasa during his lifetime, only Gustav Eriksson. His father was Erik Johansson Vasa, who was executed by Christian II at the Stockholm bloodbath (see above). You can see this painting of Gustav Vasa at Gripsholm Castle.

Midsummer

by dejavu2gb

Midsummer is a important part of Swedish Culture, and based on their traditions.
The midsummer celebrations usually occur on the Friday closest to 24 June.
A midsummer pole which is decorated in flowers, leaves, flags and magic symbols, is raised and the Swedes sing and dance around the pole.

Please note that during this time many of the city people go to the countryside, and many places in the city will remain closed during this period.
