Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Stockholm University
(Stockholm, Sweden)

Stockholm's main roads are prone to flooding. In fact, the city is known as the Venice of the North. Road travel is not really a great way to tour the city because most people use the gondolas and ferries to get around.

Travel by Air

Visitors flying in from other countries can land at either of the two international airports in Stockholm. The Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is an international airport located in the town of Marsta, 40 km / 25 miles north of Stockholm. It is the finest airport in Sweden and one of the largest in Europe. The Stockholm-Bromma Airport is located in the heart of Stockholm. It is not as well equipped as the Stockholm-Arlanda, but it has the advantage of being directly in the city.

Car Hire and Road Transport

With it's hundreds of islands and expanse of water in the greater Stockholm area, the city is perhaps not the best place to try driving if you are unfamiliar with the road system. Parking is also a problem. Car hire isn't cheap in Scandanavia but there are some worthwhile nearby attractions to get to. Booking online is your best bet for good value rates.

Car Parking

Parking spaces in the city may seem widely available, but most streets without no-parking signs are most likely to get flooded easily.

Travel by Trains and Rail

Stockholm has one of the most extensive light rail transit systems in the world, with three separate lines covering the cardinal compass points. The Saltsjöbanan, Roslagsbanan, and the commuter rail are the city's three regional rail transit systems. It also has three light rail transit systems, which are Tvärbanan, Nockebybanan, and Lidingöbanan. These lines have a total of more than 40 stations between them, making commuting simple, quick, and affordable. The University of Stockholm has its own station.

Travel by Buses and Coach

Visitors can travel by bus around the city. The bus lines are divided into inner city and suburb lines, with convenient overlaps between the two.

Ferry services

Viking Line Ferries is the main ferry operator from Stockholm with sailings between Stockholm and Helsinki, Langnas, Mariehamn and Turku. The terminal is modern and has good facilities. It is also within walking distance of the city centre, Nynashamn Port is also neaby and has three daily voyages to Gdansk in Poland operated by Polferries.

Taxis in Stockholm come in the form of ordinary cars or small vans. Visitors are advised to check for the driver's license posted in front of the taxi for safety. Most of the taxis in the city accept major credit cards and give out receipts.
