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.

Stockholm is a beautiful, relaxed and friendly city with lots of things to see and experience. Just wished we could have stayed longer. It wasn’t very expensive either. Will go back there soon. The weather was nice and sunny, but on the negative side, it was quite chilly when the winds picked up. Felt a bit odd to freeze in the middle of the day on a sunny summer day.

Think of the elegant cosin of Berlin, quieter, more shy but much more beautiful, green and equally cool and stylish. It may look like boring at first glance, but it's full of interesting spots and surprises in every corner.

Stockholm is very accessible and fantastic for those who like to explore on foot. The underground system is a great way to get around, but it can be a bit expensive if you are buying single tickets (37Kr per trip, up to 90 mins including transfers). There are many social groups that welcome visitors, many of which are free, or very cheap. Eating out can be expensive, but is comparatively cheap compared to drinking! There are endless choices of locally brewed and interesting beers to be had, but they come at a price - always check first if you're on a budget! For social runners there are several options to get out and see some of the city, or meet locals: Parkrun in Haga Park, Hash House Harriers ( and Mikkeller Running Club.

It is a walkeable city. Take the city bus tour around. We liked hanging around the old town, the changing of the guard at the palace. The cruise ships' leaving the port in early morning, on a sunny day, was spectacular. From May- August is the time to visit the many islands around the city. People is the service industry are polite, helpful, and most speak english. Also, the life philosophy of the country comes through.

A great place to spend 36 hours, crazy as this sounds, it is doable with hardly no sleep, a great idea to fly in and fly out if you have a little budget as it can be costly here, thankfully the boat we stayed on was decently priced. stunning place to take pictures.
