A city surrounded by islands, the Swedish capital city of Stockholm is known for its harborside elegance. The city is dynamic and ever-evolving with a deep historic core. It’s one of the best prolific tech and start-up hubs second only to Silicon Valley. It attracts people from all over the world towards its beauty and liberal culture.
The first tourist attraction of the city you must visit is the world’s first open air museum Skansen, located in the island of Royal Djurgården. Founded in 1891 it provides valuable insight into the culture and traditions of the Swedish past. The hilltop is dotted with around 150 old houses and other exhibits that reflect ‘Sweden in miniature’
Located in the Old Town is Stortoget, one of the oldest squares in the city. The narrow alleyways are home to characterful bars, towering townhouses, and local cafes. It is one of the best places to try a hot beverage and some traditional Swedish cinnamon rolls.
The people of Stockholm are obsessed with nature. One of the greenest islands of the city is Djurgården. Visitors can enjoy fresh air over the lush woodland trails and calm watersides of the island. The island is also home to some of the most popular tourist attractions such as the Vasa Museum and Abba The Museum. The museums contain numerous quirky and interactive exhibits including a giant 17th century salvaged ship.
Stockholm has an abundance of vintage, retro, and second-hand clothes shops. The area of Södermalm alongside the waterfront offers a large collection of vintage clothes from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. In the warmer months you can find pop-up flea markets all over the city selling local artisanal goods including huge wheels of Swiss cheese!
Swedish cuisine is famous all over the world and most people have tried the traditional Swedish meatballs thanks to IKEA shops everywhere. In Stockholm you can get a taste of authentic Swedish cuisine including traditional mashed potatoes, thick gravy, cardamom buns, and lingonberry jam.
The nightlife in Stockholm is legendary with plenty of outdoor party spaces, electro clubs, and bars that burst into life during peak tourist seasons.
