About Stockholm

Including tips for the best time to visit Stockholm

Stockholm is one of the world’s cleanest and most compact capitals – even though it's spread across 14 islands. Some islands are connected by bridges for cars and pedestrians, but you'll have to take a ferry or the "tunnelbana" (metro) to visit others.

Regardless of how you're moving around town, you’re in for a treat. The picturesque old town, Gamla Stan, dates back to the 13th century. Here you’ll find old squares and narrow, cobblestone streets lined with gold-tinted buildings and fresco-filled churches. Stockholm Palace has over 600 rooms and several museums, making it one of the world’s largest, and the daily changing of the guard is a popular Stockholm attraction.

Learn more about Sweden’s medieval history at Skansen, an open-air museum and zoo, as well as the Vasa Museum – a near-perfectly preserved warship that sank only minutes into its maiden voyage in 1628. Over three centuries later, the ship was excavated up from the Stockholm seabed and turned into a museum. Take the guided tour to learn the story of its demise and resurrectio through short films and exhibitions.

Stockholm’s contemporary culture is just as interesting with plenty of bohemian cafés, designer boutiques, and museums like the Moderna Museet and Spritmuseum.

Take a day-trip ferry out to Stockholm's archipelago, famous for its pristine natural beauty and perfect for hiking, swimming, and fishing in the summer.

What other travelers say about Stockholm


Stockholm was a great city.

May 20, 2019

Stockholm was a great city. It was very clean and felt safe at all times. The public transport system is very easy to navigate around! It was expensive, but to be expected as all Scandinavian countries are! Definitely recommend Meatballs for the People for authentic traditional Swedish meatballs!

Although busy, still a silent city.

Although busy, still a silent city. Everyone is so well educated, respectful patient and quiet. Extremely clean and well organised. Although to my surprise, I didn't meet many people who speak English, they still tried their best to help out. Food in the old town is extremely expensive. Transport is very efficient. Getting around is so easy

Modern city with interesting museums and good design shopping. Some great Nordic food to be found. Efficient public transport. Safe. And a hop and a skip away from nature. Due to the relative value of the Swedish crown not as expensive as it used to be.

ABBA museum was awesome!

May 19, 2019

ABBA museum was awesome! Also spent a night out in Gämla Stan which was beautiful and a lot of fun. I also recommend one of the sightseeing bus or boat tours. Lots of great information without having to do a lot of walking or paying for a lot of museums if that suits your fancy!

Beautiful city.

May 15, 2019

Beautiful city. The ABBA and the VASA were our favorite museums. We took a steamer tour of the Archipelago and enjoyed the trip and a nice meal on board. The 24 hour Jump-on-Jump-off City Sightseeing bus ticket would be a good choice, but the 72-hour option was a waste of money.
