    • Refilling my Swedish prepaid mobile phone when I am in Poland

      by Tom475 Online Now Jan 13, 2016 at 7:50 AM

      How can I top up my Telenor prepaid mobile phone when I am in Poland? I cannot buy a Telenor prepaid voucher anywhere here, only In Sweden, where I will return in a few months from now. I also don't have a Swedish bank account, yet. And the Telenor website rejects valid credit cards, for some incomprehensible reason. I need kontantkort Telenor Rörligt 100 kronor. What are my options?

      Where to go on New Year night?

      by Muscovite Online Now Dec 4, 2015 at 10:23 AM

      Is there any Christmas / New Year Tree locals dance around, or fireworks, or anything special for the occasion in the street? (Apart from Skansen, because I'd rather have it free :))

      I happen to be in Stockholm December 31 – January 01, and it appears that most cafes / food-stores, even the food markets I looked up are closed.
      Anyone knows of anything around hotel Central (that’s opposite the Central railway station), that functions?
      And, by the way, how about transportation - bus, tram etc.?

      Traveling from Stockholm to Oslo in spring of this year I see that there is a train and at least two bus services available. Any advice as to which one to take. Please rate by cost, comfort and your recommendation if you have actually taken this route before. I would qualify for a senior fare. Thanks

    • Invited to Stockholm for Nobel Prize week, what should I expect?

      by dprice98 Online Now Sep 5, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      As said in the title, I have been invited to Nobel Prize week held at Stockholm University. However, I've never stepped foot outside of the United States before in my seventeen years of life, so this presents a couple of concerns on my end. Being under eighteen and neither parent having any interest in attending the event with me, what kind of complications will this cause in terms of travel, lodging, and social scenes? Assuming I make it to Stockholm, I will be arriving early to mid December, so how bad is the winter there and what can I expect (side note: I am from Florida; we don't have winter here)? Travel expenses and all other things have been covered by family finances, scholarships, etc., so that is not a concern at this time. I just need to know what to do when over there IF I can get there because frankly I am a little intimidated by the complexity of planning this trip along with no one to help me.

      From Arlanda aeroport to Uppsala

      by Muscovite Online Now Aug 5, 2015 at 2:02 AM

      Going there August 14.
      SL tells me:
      Vid lokala resor i Upplands län gäller UL-biljetter. För resa över länsgränsen behövs biljett för både SL och UL. Se eller för mer information.
      Börjar eller slutar resan vid pendeltågsstationen Arlanda C, behövs en passagebiljett för att passera spärren. Biljetten kan du köpa när du påbörjar resan eller när du kommer till Arlanda.

      I am happy with my old SL Access card. But where on earth do I get all those regional tickets?

      August festival

      by Muscovite Online Now Jul 31, 2015 at 6:48 AM

      I understand there will be only tourists around as any sensible Stockholmare is already on vacation.
      With this festival - mainly in the streets - are there any places to avoid? I don't mean anything dangerous, just don't like noise. (Don't see Kunliga Operan to take part)

      White Hills’ Magnolia

      by Muscovite Online Now Jul 23, 2015 at 6:39 AM

      Hi, how do I find the Vita Bergen magnolia tree at the Sofia Church?
      There must be a statue there, too - the founder of the community, I guess, cannot find that Internet-link again
      I have been there before, but haven’t noticed anything that looks like it.
      Or maybe I just cannot tell magnolia from anything else :)

      I'm a 32-years old Italian boy who likes so much travels, I'm going to plan a journey in Stockolm from 26 to 29 of June 2015 and I'm looking for new friends to meet during the journey, and possibily suggestions for accomodations.

      To be honest this is the first time for me in VirtualTourist site, I used and updated my world travels in another famous site, so I'm going to create my profile to set as much as possible informations about me and my travels. I'm a serious person who search only to see new places and do new experiences with friends, that's all!!! Also, I work and live in Rome in a nice house where I can host and reciprocate any trip with my friends around the world.

      I work like Computer Engineer in a wonderful company in Rome, the first in Italy that follow Anglo-Saxon kind of company, and I'm very enthusiast for my work that gives me many many satisfacions. Because my origins are Sicilian, during my adolescence and my studies I worked like a DJ in many disco in Palermo (Sicily) so I like to experience night life and entertainment with friends.

      I hope to find people who likes to share experiences with me, for any further question please contact me, I reply as soon as possible.

      Thank you and have nice trip!!!
