    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

    Christmas in Sweden is a very special time. Christmas Eve is always celebrated with the family members, so if you don’t have close friends in Sweden, you probably won’t have a chance to experience this magic tradition and won’t know anything about the way it is celebrated.

    With my Christmas walk you’ll be able to learn more about the Swedish Christmas. What is a must for almost all the Swedes? What do the Swedes eat on Christmas? Who are Kalle Anka and jultomten? What is the year’s Christmas present? Our great helper will be one of the most attractive things in the Christmas Stockholm, the wonderfully decorated windows of the department store NK.

    We’ll also try to get more of the Christmas atmosphere by visiting the exhibition of ginger biscuits (not on Mondays, available till January 7), taking a look at the tallest Christmas tree in the country and experiencing one of the most famous points of the light walk in the capital of Sweden.

    If we are cold, we can always get in a café and continue talking about the traditions with a cup of coffee.
