Sweden trip in august -- please help!

Hi

My boyfriend and I are planning a one-two week trip to Sweden in the beginning of August. We definately want to spend some time in Stockholm and Uppsala and we are going to Linköping for a couple of days. If anyone could suggest places for us to go not too far away and things to do, it would be great!
thanx in advance

Vadstena at Lake Vättern. Santa Birgitta was born and lived there before she moved to Rome. Great castle, Vadstena Slott. Many old buildings.

Not to sound like an advertisement but maybe you should pick up the Fodor's guide on Sweden. It's got a lot of helpful information on planning, booking and cheap hotels. I'll be leaving for sweden in about 2 weeks... maybe i'll post a reply later and tell you how helpful it realy is =)

Olga: Think about a fast ferry to the Gotland Island and the walled village of Visby. Takes about two and a half hours. This beautiful medieval village, town small city, whatever, has it all; cobbled lanes, many historic buildings, smart shops, wonderful restaurants and cafes, a really fun harbor scene. The sea views from the village are fantastic. Biking the Island is also fun. This was one of the highlights of our Scandinavian trip last year.

Just spent last Wednesday & Thursday in Orebro, about a 2 hour train ride outside of Stockholm. Beautiful town with a spectacular castle. The old village, Wadkoping, was interesting too.
