Sigtuna is a town situated on Lake Mälaren, near Stockholm (1 hour approx.). It was founded over 980 years ago. It appears as if it is straight out of a children's story. It was in this city that was first coined currency in Sweden was made. You can get there by train, bus or boat from the center of Stockholm. Or alternatively, you can rent a car, as we did. It is the perfect idea if you have little time and a long list of places to visit. It´s a nice place to stroll around the lake or the streets, spend some time shopping and above all, enjoy the cafeterias. Here you can see some pictures that were taken during the spring of 2010.
