Dear All,

I'm heading Stockholm & Paris for a week . I have a couple of questions as I'm in need for help.

1- I'm confused how many days to spend in Stockholm & in Paris. Does Stockholm has more scenery & places of attractions rather than Paris or what?...I'm going there for tourism & shopping. Should I stay 3 days in Stockholm & 4 in Paris or what??

2- Since I'm visiting both countries for a short time. What sightseeing is a must see? & What places I should go??

Thank you very much in Advance

Shopping in Stockholm will be very expensive. The Swedes opted out of joining the Euro and you'll have to exchange whatever currency you have for the Kroner. You can check exchange rates at xe.com and then compare prices of goods with what you'd expect to pay at home.

The rest of the EU member states though, with the exception of the UK, is Euro land. Paris will probably offer better value for money I would have thought.

Dear Blinq,

Thank you, but I'm not speaking of money now. I want to know if I have 1 week vacation, how many days to spend in Stockholm & how many in Paris in terms of attractions & sightseeing?

Thanks for the help

You could split it evenly between the two. The links I gave you include all the cultural activities on offer. It depends really where your interests lie.

You could possibly link up with a few Couchsurfing members who live in both those cities. Some of them allow you to stay over (sleep on the couch) while others offers themselves as tour guides.
