Classic charm and natural beauty make Stockholm an unforgettable destination for your next holiday. The capital city of Sweden is built upon 14 main islands connected by 50 bridges on Lake Mälaren. In this bustling city, you’ll discover grand palaces, captivating museums, and a beautiful archipelago made up of 24,000 islands and islets. You’ll also find that Stockholm offers a fully cosmopolitan experience as well. You can discover plenty of places to shop, dine, and party to your heart’s delight. Come during the summer months and enjoy nearly endless daylight—up to 18 hours a day—or celebrate the winter with plenty of snow and great ski runs.
Start your trip off by visiting Stockholm Palace or the Drottningholm Palace, where the royal family resides. The city is home to more than 70 museums, so spend some time browsing the exhibits. The most popular are the Vasa Museum and the Skansen, an open air museum. Don’t miss out on Stockholm’s old town, called Gamla stan, where you can walk along cobbled streets and view buildings from the 13th century. At the end of the day, head to the island of Sodermalm, (known as “Soder”), which offers lots of fine dining options and a rocking night life.
