Great 1:30+ tour through town, highlighting both the past and present history of Stockholm and Sweden. Great Aussie accented puns and trivia from Ryan on H&M, IKEA, Gustav 1 thru 4, and Christina.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and

I agree that at least 10 dollars (or Euros) and 1000 SEK is fair. We gave 20 dollars for the two of us. It was a great deal. We had a girl and she was awesome.
