Katarina Church

by Rojo72

Finalized in 1694 Katarina Church was the church of the newly formed parish on the island of Söder in Stockholm.

Today it's a clear landmark for all of Söder, easily visible from the waterfront by the Grand Hotel, Skeppsholmen or one side of th old town.

The church completely burnt in 1990 and only the outer walls remained. It was reopened in 1995.

The nationwide famous band Imperiet have even written a song bearing it's name. "Katarina klockor", "The Bells of Katarina"

train from stockholm to oslo

by Zouley

I want to take the train/bus from stockholm to oslo to take my flight from Torp airport 17.05. Is there a train which I can take to get to the airport.

how much does it cost to get from Stockholm to Torp/Oslo

Thank you very much.

You change trains in Oslo and then take a bus the last part from Sandefjord to Torp. There is also a bus from Oslo direct to Torp.
You probably need to start quite early in the morning from Stockholm to make the whole trip.

The trip Stockholm C - Oslo S takes between 6 adn 7,5 hours, including one change of vehicles so I think you either should to go Oslo the day before the flight or try to find a cheap ticket with Norwegian.

Check prices and timetables for Stockholm-Oslo at www.sj.se.

online booking for trains

by Zouley

Hi,
Thanks. Could you please tell whether it is cheaper to travel by bus or train from oslo to stockholm.
I and my three children (who are adults) we are going to stay only one day and half in stockholm. could you please tell me which places are most worth visiting

Thanks

Re: train from stockholm to oslo

by marielexoteria

If booked ahead, both the bus and the train are just as cheap.
In fact, with most SJ departures you'll take the train to Gothenburg and then a bus to Oslo, but they have direct trains as well.

A day and a half in Stockholm? I'd say the Old Town (Gamla Stan), Skansen and/or Vasa Museum, I could recommend more things depending on your likes and dislikes.

Re: train from stockholm to oslo

I'm sorry, I read Stockholm-Oslo, not the other way around, please disregard my above answer about that, but not what I recommended to see in Stockholm.

Re: train from stockholm to oslo

If that is all the time you have, I would recommend taking a flight between the two cities. The distance is far as Stockholm is "on the other side" of Sweden. A bus is of course cheaper, but it takes many many hours to drive....

Re: train from stockholm to oslo

by marielexoteria

Agreed. My guestimation is that it would take between 11 and 12 hours. 4 between Oslo and Gothenburg and the rest to Stockholm.

Flying takes 1 hour plus transfer time.

Re: train from stockholm to oslo

I hope guess you know that Sandefjord/Torp is around 120 km south of Oslo. There are direct buses from Oslo to Torp. You can see the timetable here http://www.torpekspressen.no/.

As for transport from Stockholm to Oslo you could consider the nightbus if you think you are able to get enough rest on the bus. That way you will get some time in Oslo as well before you go to Torp. You will find the timetables and prices for the buses here http://www.swebus.se/.

Since you will travel from Stockholm to Oslo I think you should use the Swedish train company SJ for booking your train if that's what you decide upon. http://www.sj.se/

As someone suggested above you could also fly from Stockholm Arlanda to either Oslo Gardermoen or Sandefjord Torp. The first alternative will probably be a cheaper flight (Norwegian) but you need to take 1-2 buses/trains to get to Sandefjord. The other alternative will be a bit more expensive (SAS) but will save a lot of time.

Travel Tips for Stockholm

Kronor

by Arial_27

Sweden is one of the European countries that don't use the Euro dollar. Instead they use crowns : "Kronor."

One Kronor is equal to 13 cents American. So something that is labeled 10 kronor is only worth $1.33!

Use this map to get an orientation

by wadekorzan

It's helpful when reading about the tips to have an idea of how the city is laid out and wher things are. You can get a good map of Stockhol at the Tourst Center at Sergels Torg Square, which would be my first stop when visiting Stockholm.

In the middle of the city (#'s 2 and 8 on the map) is the old town known as "Gamla Stan". This is a small area best explored on foot. Here you'll find the Rpyal Palace, Changing of the Guard, the Treasury, Armoury, GustavIII's Antique Museum, etc. Also explore the shopping street Vasterlanggatan and Stortorget Square. Central Stockholm (#'s 10, 11, 13) is more modern--with the main shopping street Drottningsgatan, Central Station, Sergels Torg, etc. The city hall, which is a must is located at #9, on the island of Kungsholmen. The Nordiska Museum (#5), Vasa Museum (#1), and Skansen (#3) are all very lose to each other in the Royal Garden (Djurgarden).

South of Gamla Stan is the round island called Soedermalm--be sure to explore the street Gotgatan and main square Medborgplatsen.

Djurgarden is one of the islands that make up Stockholm. It was right across from where we were staying. Aside from Grona Lund, it had several museums and parks. We walked there from our flat & saw alot of interesting things.

Dala Horses

by CharleneP

The Dala Horse is a symbol of Sweden. These colorful horses date back to the 18th century. In the best of Swedish folk tradition, hand-carved and painted wooden horses from Dalarna. They are real pretty. :o)
