During your stay in Stockholm, it might be fun to break the usual routine and do something a little different than you usually do, like shopping, museums, walks and visit restaurants and bars. An excellent alternative is to visit some of the city’s pool halls. Besides that it’s fun, a great thing with billiard is that almost anyone can play regardless of age, physical strength or level.
