Gamla Stan – Stockholm
You’ll find that Stockholm is very organised and it’s a very easy city to get around. It is a very clean city, slightly expensive, especially the hotels, but not as expensive as its neighbor, Norway. You’ll notice here that the people are very tall, I’m from England, so I’m not particularly short, but I felt it here.
Gamla Stan is the old town of Stockholm and it’s a photographers paradise. You’ll find cobbled streets, medieval alleys and lots of colorful architecture. A circular walk I recommend (including a ferry) is from Gamla Stan, you walk across the Strombon Bridge and work your way around the promenade to Djurgården Bridge. You can then cross this bridge, maybe visit the ABBA museum and then take a ferry back to Gamla Stan. On this route you’ll see a lot and have lots of photo opportunites!
Flixbus – Stockholm to Copenhagen night service
I took the overnight Flixbus to Copenhagen, this was cheaper than the train but not as fast but with the prices of hotels in both Copenhagen and Stockholm being so expensive, it was definitely worth the slow overnight ride for €28. It left Stockholm at 2330 and arrived in Copenhagen around 8am the following morning. After making a stop in downtown Malmö, this service then continued over the Øresund bridge, which is the longest bridge in the Europe.
