Description

The usually-reserved Swedes brave the cold, let their hair down and go wild on the Nyårsafton (New Year's Eve) celebrations each and every year. You can almost smell the tradition in Skansen, where New Year's Eve has been celebrated every year since 1895, and you will certainly feel chills down your spine as the clock strikes midnight and, as they do every year without fail, a well-known Swede reads Tennyson's 'Ring Out, Wild Bells'. The sounds of the annual New Year's Eve concert ("Nyårskonsert" in Swedish) at Storkyrkan Church in Stockholm's old town mixes with the sounds of trumpets and streamers as the clocks strike twelve. Stick around to admire the annual fireworks display with the crowds as the lights explode over this watery Swedish city, and whatever you do, don't miss out on New Year's Eve in Stockholm this year!
