Stationary rotating strings can be viewed as geodesic motions in appropriate metrics on a two dimensional space. We obtain all solutions describing stationary rotating strings in flat space time strings have infinite length with various wiggly shapes. Averaged value of the string energy, the angular momentum and the linear momentum along the string are discussed.
