You need to arrange a tour to properly see City. Our tour was tailored to meet our requests, including seeing city from a Jewish perspective. We had a great tour guide, an American ex-patriate with 12 years in Germany. At the Olympic Stadium, you also need to see the Landsmark--next door--build specifically to Hitler's specifications. It was one of the most eerie building we have ever seen. He held SS graduation ceremonies here. Bradenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the new Government Buildings and Train station are also a must.
Hard to rate this stop, since it poured rain all day. Nice City from what we saw, including Royal Palace, the Royal Stables and Danish Jewish Museum. Walking is very easy in town--I don't think a formal tour is required. A great place to buy amber
You need a tour to properly see city. Also tours get priority into getting into Hermitage and Winter & Summer Palaces. In addition to those sites--a trip on the subway(very safe) is a must. The stations look like palaces (built as the people palaces) Pushkin/Peterhof also a beautiful stop-- For those adventuresome and willing to have an expensive lunch, we'd recommend Elena Shitkova--a purported favorite of Putin. Traditional Russian dress and food. Over 100 different vodkas. I was tempted to have the "bear" for lunch, but chose a much a pedestrian choice.
Because of the poor NCL tour--we spent a long time waiting in line at VASSA and was shorted time at the end. This event impacted the day. Vassa Museum is very nice if you have the right time to view it properly. The 20 minutes we were given was not enough. We didn't get to the Nobel Museum--which was partially our fault. We did see the Palace and the changing of the guide--which was nice. Walking along the pedestrian street was also nice. Stockholm is the most expensive city we visited.
