When to go
In winter, the city gets just five hours of daylight. At weekends in July, it can be very quiet as everybody heads to their summer-island properties.

TrainsA 20-min Arlanda Express Train costs SEK 180 and takes you into Stockholm Central Station. From here you can access Stockholm’s underground, called the Tunnelbana.
AutomobilesA taxi costs SEK 400. A car is only an advantage if you want to leave the city centre.
TaxisYou can hail cabs on the street; taxi's aren't cheap but they do, handily, accept payment by debit and credit card (including AmEx).
