Nykoping is a small town roughly 100 kilometres from Sweden’s capital city Stockholm. It is one of the oldest cities in the country and was once the capital of one of Sweden’s kingdoms in medieval times. Today, many of its attractions offer a look into the past, with the medieval Nykoping Castle at the top of the must-see list, alongside the St Nicholas Church and Sormland Museum. Make your way around this historic city with a Stockholm Skavsta Airport car hire.
Once you’re in the driver’s seat of your car rental in Nykoping, the rest of Sweden is your oyster. It takes just over an hour to drive to Stockholm, so you can easily take a day trip in your car hire to visit the Stockholm Palace, Gamla Stan, and Vasa warship museum. It’s an even shorter drive to Norrkoping, which is just 50 minutes away and makes for a beautiful day exploring the canals and historic streets.
