Perhaps the best way to enter Stockholm (overnight from Helsinki). This multideck Viking Line ferry arrives to the historic part of the city (unlike its fellow Silija Line, which moors a dozen kilometers from downtown). The excursion lasts 30 minutes; you'll see a 500-meter length rock with mansions at the top and a small blue train disappearing inside the mountain. On the other bank lies Old Town, Gröna Lund Park and STF Vandrarhem af Chapman & Skeppsholmen Hostel-Ship.
Viking Line Terminal is a 10-minute walk from the famous Fotografiska Gallery and a 5-minute walk from the Marine Institute (a building of red brick walls). Here you will also find a glass bridge of Gondolen Restaurant offering high prices but stunning views of Gamla Stan. Patricia steamer is moored nearby; it is a typical mecca for gay people – a restaurant during the day and a club at night.
At the end you'll find yourself at the crossroads – Södermalm designer stores on the left and Gamla Stan tourist spot on the right.
