Just thought that I should share some Swedish travel news I’ve overheard or did catch in different places lately. A mix of short good to know travel bits.

  • The tourism in Sweden is increasing further, as it has the past eight years, despite the economical crises around in the world. Last year the tourists spent 87 billions Swedish crowns – which is more than double the amount Sweden did earn on the Swedish car export…
  • In the last quarter of 2011, Sweden had the most expensive hotel rates of the whole European Union, with a average of 1180 Swedish crowns/night. Denmark came in on the second place, UK at third place. Though I must say to Sweden’s defense that the hotels in Sweden generally keep an high standard.
  • The most visited Museum in Sweden is the old and famous outdoor museum out on the Djurgården island, neighbor to the only amusement park in Stockholm, Gröna Lund. After that it’s the Vasa Museum with the old Vasa ship and then the Museum of Modern Art.
  • Flybe starts a new flight route Bromma (Stockholm) and Oslo in the beginning of May with 22 departures per week. Already today you can take a flight to Copenhagen, Tallinn of Helsinki with Flybe.

We were just looking around a bit… and we were VERY tempted to book two other trips, because we found awesome bargain prices for flights to both Palma de Mallorca and Venedig with another airline.

I tell you: we were soooo close to book since the weather is really boring here in Stockholm right now and we had booked them for sure – if it were not for the fact that we need to save for our long Europe trip later this year… *sigh*
