nevermind has indicated that this thread is about Sweden

Hi! i'm going to Stockholm for 5 days (friday to wednesday).
I'd like to know the best places to see during the day, where to eat (cheaply) and where to go for the nights (pubs, discos, particular places where to meet young people).
Oh, if you have also places to AVOID... tell me, please! ;-)
Thank you really much!

Buy the "Stockholm card" and you get free entrance to several sights, free rides on busses and the subway, free boatrides (don't miss - the boatrides are great!) etc. Go see the royal castle and the area surrounding it, called "The Old Town". But don't bother to look at the treasury (where they keep the royal jewels - booooring). Visit the "Livrustkammaren" instead - much more interesting. Visit the park "Skansen".

And there is always McDonalds!

Have a blast in Stockholm!

For some extra inspriration, check this thread on Stockholm, from last month:http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum.cfm?thread=35663 For sure don't miss the Vasa-museum (you can combine it with Skansen) I don't know how late you arrive but on wednesday it's opened till 20.00 hours (on other days till 17.00)

There is a good (and cheap) Chinese restaurant on Kungsgatan. I have only forgotten how it's called. (I should start making notes about restaurants one day).

I see you don't ask for a place to stay (but may for others reading this thread), http://www.fridhemsplan.se/main.asp?lang=eng The Fridhemsplan, might be a little bit more expensive, than the normal hostel, but as far as hostels are concerned, my number 1 (with the Circus in Berlin, in a close 2nd place)

A place to avoid at night is Sergels Torg (outside the Central Station)

Have a nice trip,

René

Thanks a lot Linda and René!
I didn't ask before, but is it there any place where to eat typical dishes for a reasonable price? I don't want to go in sweden to eat chinese food

Quoting Herr Bert

A place to avoid at night is Sergels Torg (outside the Central Station)

err... i think i'll arrive exactly there at about 1am with a bus from skavsta airport, i hope it's not so bad! I'll try to walk as fast as i can

I'll be at City Backpackers, it seems to be a great hostel. I hope so!
Anything about where to drink a beer and chat with locals and tourists?

Thank you all again!
