Arriving and departing Manila Airport
Like the rest of Sweden it was untouched by the World Wars, but particularly between and , hundreds of old buildings in Norrmalm were demolished in a large-scale modernization process, encouraged by similar projects in other European cities. Since then, only infills and a few areas have been developed with new architecture in central Stockholm.
Despite its northern location, Stockholm has fairly mild temperatures throughout the year. As a result of its northerly latitude, the city sees a dramatic seasonal variation in sunlight, from more than 18 hours of daylight around midsummer, to around 6 hours of daylight in late December. Stockholm enjoys an average of nearly 2, hours of sunshine a year. Average yearly precipitation is mm Snowfall can occur from late November to early April, but the amount of snowfall varies greatly from year to year and through the winter season.
Deep snow cover throughout the winter is rather uncommon. The main station, Stockholms Central , serves both commuter and long-distance routes. It is located in lower Norrmalm, connected to T-Centralen , the central hub for the subway system, and Cityterminalen , the long-distance bus station.

A daily overnight train is available from the northern Norwegian city of Narvik 14 h. There are numerous direct domestic services to Stockholm from most major cities. Conventional trains mostly follow the same routes, and run slightly slower, but can slash prices considerably.
Most other mid-sized cities in Sweden have a train connection with Stockholm. WiFi is included in the price. The City Terminal Cityterminalen  is the main bus terminal, directly connected to Stockholm Central and the T Centralen subway station.
There are multiple daily departures to most other cities in Sweden, as well as a few international routes. Swebus Express  operates routes to Copenhagen and Oslo with several daily departures, and a twice-weekly service to Berlin. Eurolines  has some departures to Copenhagen. Smaller operators offer connections with Prague , Budapest , Zagreb , Banja Luka  among other cities.
The port of Stockholm consists of several port areas. Stockholm is the main Swedish terminal for the Baltic Sea cruises. They are by far the cheapest way to get to and from these cities from Stockholm.
Note carefully that cities and places are written and pronounced differently in Finnish and Swedish. This is a lesser case with other Baltic Sea countries.
If you intend to use the boats to travel to- or from- Stockholm, it is almost always cheaper to book a cruise kryssning , or even two head-to-head cruises and discard the returns, rather than buy one-way tickets. Storstockholms Lokaltrafik, SL Stockholm Public Transport  runs an extensive subway, commuter train and bus system as well as some light rail and ferry services, all using an integrated ticket system called "SL Access". The paper strip coupon ticket system was discontinued as of Suburban ferries, airport buses, the Arlanda Express and regional trains are not part of the SL network, and thus not included in any of these tickets.
Tickets cannot be bought from bus drivers. Instead, there are cash and credit card machines at most bus stops and metro entrances. The SL website has detailed ticket and price information, and a journey planner. Kindly note that SL doesn't have visible information before journey that there is no travel card reader aboard to pay journey.
For more general info, see Public Public Transportation in Stockholm. Stockholm has a metro system called the Tunnelbana , commonly abbreviated T-bana , and symbolised with a blue T on a round white sign.
With exactly stations, it is extensive for a city of this size, and will get you around almost all the downtown places as well as many inner suburbs. Trains run from Night buses replace the trains on weekdays. The metro is probably the fastest way to travel to many inner suburbs not served by suburban rail, as well as offering a scenic view from the bridge between Gamla Stan and Slussen.
The SL website offers a guide to the artwork that is featured in many subway stations, with nearly all stations offering some form of permanent artwork on display. The artwork on the blue line in particular is of note.
Directions in Stockholm are often accompanied by the name of the closest subway stop, using T as an abbreviation for "Tunnelbana", e. This practice is followed below when appropriate. There are four lines:. Off-peak sees 4 tph tph in the bracketed section on lines 27 and 28, 2 tph on line Suburban trains are included in Stockholm's transport ticket system, with the exception of Knivsta and Uppsala on line 38, which employ Uppsala's local transport fares.

At Blockhusudden and Nacka Strand, there are nice restaurants just by the water. Cycling is an attractive option during warm seasons, and there are many bikepaths. On a bike, a journey across the inner city takes no longer than 30 minutes, and can be faster than travelling by subway or car.
There are cycle paths along most major streets and drivers are generally considerate towards cyclists. In winter, when paths can be covered by ice, extra care should be taken. Make sure you bike on the right hand side of the street, just as the cars. Taxis are on the expensive side. Even worse is the fact that some small dodgy operators charge outrageous prices: The antidote is to always check the black and yellow price sticker on the rear passenger window.
The price shown in large digits is the maximum for instance during night hours fare for a 10km, 15 minute journey and reputable companies charge around SEK for this. If the sticker shows a much higher price, stay away or be ripped off. The taxi market was deregulated several years ago which made it considerably easier to find a taxi but the downside is that the rip-offs aren't even illegal, just "supply and demand"!
Note that many minor companies use "Stockholm" in their names to mimic their competitor, so look for the phone number 15 00 00 which appears below the logo on all Taxi Stockholm cars. Among the companies to avoid is Taxi 08 that operates at the limit of the legal rate. Most taxi firms operate a fixed price regime between central Stockholm and Arlanda airport, mirroring the rates for the journey into town of around SEK It's a good idea to check with the driver that you will get the fixed price before you set off - the meter price for the same ride may cost twice as much.

Rumours say that these cabs are usually controlled by organized crime, and some unpleasant episodes have been known to happen to passengers, so try this at your own risk, and preferably not alone.
