Stockholm

Sweden’s jewel on the coast

Stockholm is a relaxed city: Prestigious buildings and museums, residential neighborhoods and shopping quarters are dispersed among many islands; waterways and bridges coin the city and guarantee that the capital of Sweden never feels cramped. The atmosphere among the inhabitants is also open-minded – a large immigrant population ensures mixed cultures, various culinary influences and diverse religions. Stockholm has been adopting different styles and ideas since the middle ages and has infused them with their proper Swedish twist. The results are churches, like the Riddarholmskyrkan, or the baroque royal palace in the oldest part of Stockholm, Gamla Stan, or the redbrick city hall on the island of Kungsholem, which hosts the Nobel Prize ceremony each year. The Swede’s enthusiasm for art also appears in the city’s diverse nightclubs, which for decades have not only attracted jazz and pop musicians from around the globe, but have also repeatedly brought forth new Swedish stars.

  • Stockholm’s old town is like a Scandinavian version of Venice, and visitors can get lost walking among its small islands and narrow canals.

  • Stockholm is known as the "Venice of the North" as it is surrounded by water. It is a beautiful city and there are lots of outdoor activities to do in summer and in winter. Just remember to take a bit more spending money with you as Sweden is rather pricey!

  • You can't but fall in love with this city! So much to see and the nearness to the water has a very soothing effect. Be sure spend at least one day on Skansen (reachable by ferry) to visit the Vasa museum, Aquarium, Djurgården with the zoo and outdoor museum.

  • Si visitas Estocolmo y quieres alojarte en un velero puedes hacerlo en el STF/IYHF af Chapman. Las habitaciones son los camarotes del buque y desde su cubierta puedes, además de tomarte un café, ver Gamla Stan y el Palacio Real. Reserva con tiempo, suele estár muy solicitado.

  • I had the chance to spend 5 months in sthlm - nice and friendly people, very sophisticated food + fresh products, wonderful clubs and very very clean. yet a bit pricy, but worth every kronor - enjoy! i can recommend places like mosebacke, sturekompagniet, strolling down gamla stan and enjoying the many green fields, as well as waters all around the city. when you own an all day pass for stockholm transport you can use the ferry to go from gamla stan to djurgarden. enjoy!

  • Stockholm is one of the most beautiful capitols in Europe, especially in summer time. Earlier Sweden was said to be expencive, but that's not the case anymore. Unless you come from US... Good shopping, great culture life and splendid areas to explore. A must!
