Venue and transportation

It’s easy to understand why Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, earned the moniker “Venice of the north”, given how it sprawls across an archipelago of fourteen islands in the Baltic Sea. Each of these islands has its own distinctive character. Stadsholmen is home to Stockholm Palace, the official residence of the Swedish monarchy. Längholmen is a popular place for walks, picnics, and swimming at the small beaches, even in the year’s colder months. Södermalm, formerly a working-class neighbourhood, is now the city’s trendy bohemian and cultural centre.

The Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is located 40 kilometres north of the city centre. Taxis take around 40 minutes to get into the city from the airport, depending on the traffic. There are a few train options to get into the city centre: both the Arlanda Express train (320 SEK) and the SJ Intercity train (214 SEK) take around 20 minutes. In comparison, local trains take approximately 40 minutes and cost 160 to 180 SEK.

ECIO delegates will receive a 20% discount code for the Arlanda Express to use to and from the airport; the code will be sent after registering for the conference. Information on this express train can be found here.

By subway, tram, bus, ferry, or commuter train, Stockholm’s local transportation is an efficient way to get around the city. A single ticket costs 38 SEK and can be purchased at SL’s ticket machines, via their app, or directly at the turnstiles. There is also the option to buy 24- or 72-hour tickets.

Not to miss! The Stockholm underground is known as the world’s longest art gallery since many of the stations have large art instalments from different artists. Read more about art in the subway here.
