2 answers

1. Take the Stroma boat to Birka, Its really well done and worth the price. A much much better value than the Vasa museum or Skansen.
2. Rent a bike spend a day riding around Södermalm, Kungsholmen, Djurgården and Brunsviken. City bike share is 165 SEK for three days. Some hotels have bikes to use.
3, Of the palaces, my favorite is Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, there is an art museum included in the price. If you don't care about seeing the palace, the grounds are wonderful and see an orgininal The Thinker Statue, and couple of other Rodin statues. I like the grounds better than Drottingholm.
4. For history buffs, the Royal Armory is very good, and free!. If you are a science buff, the nautral history museum is good, and Bergan Botanical garden is nearby. Both free.
5.Uppsala is close. It was the captial of Sweden and is the Educational center It has the largest church in Sweden, a huge castle, Lineas Garden, romantic walks along the main street river.. I like Uppsala alot,
6. Food: Vasterbotten pie is a must try. If you are a meat eater. Eat some reindeer, moose and bear, Not Hawkers, but supermarkets have hot food bars, around 130 SEK/kg. Libraries, Chuches and Museums are relatively cheap, authenic Swedish food. The roof Cafe of the Culture House, is great for photos
6. Booze; i buy a duty free bottle, alcohol is really expensive.
7. Shopping; Ikea and H&M are cheaper in Sweden than Singapore, skip the malls.
