The day I went to Millesgärden, I didn’t expect I would leave the park at 2pm. So I decided to enjoy the rest of the day trying my luck in Sigtuna, the most ancient Swedish town, founded in 970. I read in some blog that the town was precious, that’s why I decided to go there. I was lucky as the guy at Central Station told me that I could take a conmuter train to Märsta and then take a bus to Sigtuna, which meant my SL card was valid. I didn’t think twice and catched the train to Märsta. There I asked a bus driver and took a bus to Sigtuna center.
Sigtuna is really small, but you can enjoy a walk following Mälaren lake, it’s really lovely. Even though I didn’t enjoy a good weather, it was really nice and peaceful.
Sigtuna’s main street (there are not so many anyway) is lined with characteristic shops and it’s really pleasant to walk on it. Sigtuna’s main street (there are not so many anyway) is lined with characteristic shops and it’s really pleasant to walk on it.
Stora Gatan, the oldest Swedish shopping street…
Its old signs…
And its town hall, which was formerly a biscuit fabric, and which is considered the smallest in Scandinavia!
As Sigtuna is really small, I tried to walk towards Steninge Slott, a Tessin’s palace, which I knew was South of Sigtuna. I had no idea about the distance, but it’s part of my craziness!
I don’t know what I did, but I looped in Munkholmen, so I decided it was better to get back and catch a bus, as it was already 8pm and last train to Stockholm was at 9pm! I now now that it was 8km from Sigtuna and that I couldn’t get there following Mälaren lake!
