Travelling to StockholmThe main airport of Stockholm is Stockholm-Arlanda Airport, situated approximately three quarters of an hour from Stockholm by car. In order to get from Arlanda to Stockholm, you can either take an airport bus (a one-way trip costs 89 SEK per person and a round trip costs 170 SEK per person, 40 min) or the Arlanda Express train (a one-way trip costs 190 SEK per person and a round trip costs 360 SEK per person, 20 min) to get to the Stockholm Central station from where you can go by subway to your hotel. Alternatively you can get a taxi which will take you directly to your hotel.
Visa InformationIn Sweden, entry visas are governed by the rules of the Schengen Agreement. Under the agreement, all the EU countries (except Ireland and the UK), as well as the EEA countries of Norway and Iceland, have opened their borders to each other. Visas issued to any country which is part of the Schengen Agreement are usually good for entry to all of these countries and citizens of Schengen countries can move freely within the Schengen zone.
For further information on what nationals that need entry visas to Sweden, please see the visa information page at the homepage of the government of Sweden.
Travelling in StockholmIf you want to travel around in Stockholm on your own, the easiest way is to use the subway and bus networks. These networks are owned by Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL). Starting on May 1, 2006, the ticket cost will be 20 SEK regardless of the trip length. It will be possible to buy tickets seperately or in bunches of ten tickets (180 SEK). There are also 24 and 72 hour cards (for which the costs will be 60 SEK and 180 SEK, respectively, from May 1, 2006) for which you can use the networks freely for the duration of the cards.
