    Hi! My name is Julia. Born in Russia, I've become a passionate lover of Sweden and everything about and around it. That's why I've spent half of my life studying the Swedish mentality, traditions and history... At the moment I work with various projects, some of which involve teaching Swedish, guiding in Sweden, writing books about Sweden - and that's what I'd like to share with you: my knowledge of all the secrets I've discovered so far. What makes me so different from other guides? Well, here are some examples: - I've written 3 thick travel guides over Sweden, Stockholm and Scandinavia, all of them with tons of fascinating facts - I've been guiding in Sweden since 2000 - I create excursions for various travel agencies - I give lectures about Swedish mentality and customs

  • What you will see and do

    Have you ever wondered how it's possible to pronounce all those Swedish street names? And to read those typical Scandinavian letters å ä ö? Let's take a walk in the Old Town and learn some different facts about the capital of Sweden!

    During our walk, we'll discuss the Swedish language in all its aspects. What has influenced it during the ages? Is it possible to understand the medieval documents? is there one Swedish language or more? Is it easy to study it? And is there any use of Swedish, when so many Swedes speak fluent English?

    We'll also learn some basics of Swedish, partly by finding parallels in other languages, and partly by reading the street names and the signs we see in the streets. And surely you'll find out that you already know some words in this totally new language.

    After our walk we'll go by one of Stockholm's cafés, where we'll continue talking about the typical Swedish dishes and pastry. And you know what? You'll already be able to order your lunch or coffee in Swedish!

    At the end of our walk you'll get a short vocabulary brochure filled with good Swedish words to remember. So, see you in Stockholm!

    We loved it! Not only did we learn the words, we learned the history behind the words as well as an overview on how Stockholm came to be Stockholm. It was all very interesting and fun. Julia also made us cookies! I definitely recommend this tour.
