What you'll do
Stockholm is a beautiful city. The Old Town dates back from 1252. Swedish history is enthralling, dramatic, and droll! I have created an exciting historical tour in which afterwards you can connect Swedish history in 6 sentences. This walk is a mixture between dates; 20th century "street art"; medieval streets; colourful houses and unique characters. The main emphasis though is a look at Nordic history from a Swedish perspective. This is perfect if you are travelling around the Nordics and/or interested in history and culture. 60 - 75 minutes means we won't be exposed to the elements for too long. It is scenic, informative and fun - a great introduction to your trip to Stockholm! We identify and discuss historical turning points from Stockholm's past. Each stop I explain and analyze some of most epic stories from Swedish history. * Was it a peasant that sparked a sense of national pride in 1400s? * How many people died in Sweden's worst massacre? * What caused the unsinkable Vasa ship to sink? * Which King was assassinated? After this walk you will have a great understanding of the series of events that has created Sweden into the country it is today. This experience is for the history nerd / history buff - let us share Swedish history As an added bonus, I have extensive knowledge and experience in the Old Town restaurant and cafe scene.
As a guide for over a decade I have lived and breathed Northern European history; as a father of two girls in Sweden I have lived and breathed the modern Swedish social system; as a lover of food and drink I have lived and breathed Swedish culture and traditions. Welcome to Stockholm! My Airbnb experiences are designed to be informative; light-hearted; entertaining but most importantly encourage interaction with me and other travellers. I package together my knowledge of history + storytelling along with my personal experiences of growing up in Australia - to travelling and guiding around Europe - to raising a family in Sweden. It is a unique spin on history and culture that guide books can not give. Travelling is the people you meet. I love meeting new people hopefully I can meet you on one of my experiences. Duration: 60 - 75 min

Where you'll be
The medieval centre of Stockholm, The Old Town, dates back to the 13th Century consisting of charming alleyways and cobbled streets. It is beautiful all year around. I have created a 1 hour highlights walk of Swedish History that is flexible in accomodating for any weather that comes our way. Along the way I will share my inside local knowledge of the cafe and restaurant scene, show you small statues and sculptures, make you feel like a local.
