Your trip to Sweden would not be complete without the visit to Birka, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the very first city on Sweden. A two hour boat ride away from Stockholm, Birka will take you back to the times of the Vikings. Once the country’s most important trading centre, today, the city is a live museum of Viking culture and history. Go on a guided tour of the area: visit the Viking Museum and Viking Village and learn how the Vikings spent their days. Complete the trip with a hearty lunch and make sure to take plenty of photos to remember your trip back in time.
