Stockholm is breathtakingly beautiful and its canals are no exception to that statement. They provide hours of interesting walks and cruises on the city's well connected network of public boat transports.

We loved just walking around the canals, crossing the many bridges. Watching the locals embrace there city, from fishing in the clear water ways, to the many runners and cyclists using the bike ways, that hug the canals.

I was very fortunate that my day to walk Stockholm was brilliant and sunny. There are many canals and they can be seen from many different areas. However, the view is always stunning as the backdrop is of beautiful buildings whether they be merchant houses of the road Palace. Definitely a must see.

The canals are beautiful, but what surprised me the most are the people fishing from the bridges (it's allowed). I saw them in the summer as well as in wintertime.

The canals in Stockholm are stocked with salmon and there seems to always be a few fishing when we walk by. What a unique feature for a city center.

At some point you may like to walk the streets and bridges to take in the great viewa of the canals. I recomment going online and viewing the satellite view of the are before venturing out.

Considering the importance of the canals all around Stockholm, a cruise on the canals are quite compulsory to see all the aspects of the city. Several cruises are available to visit the canals.

We enjoyed our canal tour - we had participated in one during the summer months and the perspective was entirely different in the early spring. It is chilly in March so wear warm clothing.

Had a quick walk along a few of the canals whilst visiting Stockholm in January. Unfortunately it was really very cold and so the experience was really not as enjoyable as it might have been. So cold that my iPhone 6 just stopped working a few times!
