Welcome to the beautiful city of Stockholm, made up of 14 islands, 57 bridges and a whole lot of character. Experience the perfect mixture of modernity with tranquility that feels like a breath of fresh air.
Start in the neighborhood of Sodermalm, a creative and trendy area where you’ll find vintage stores, eclectic stores and boutique Swedish fashion. Keep an eye open for the immaculate looking Stockholm hipsters who meet here in the swish cafes.
The next neighborhood we discover is Gamla Stan, also known as the old town. This is one of the best preserved medieval city centers in Europe and is actually where Stockholm was founded in 1252. The whole area is like a real life museum, full of cobbled streets and ancient architecture. Look out for the notorious Royal Palace.
From here, we’ll make our way to Norrmalm, the city centre full of Stockholm department stores and the more affordable highstreet shops. During spring time note how the Kungsträdgården is full of magical pink cherry blossom. Be fascinated by our trip to the City Hall, a fine example of the romantic architecture and constructed with over 8 million bricks. Inside you’ll discover unique art pieces and the unforgettable Golden Hall that consists of over 18 million gold mosaic tiles.
Pass through the post residential area of Östermalm, which strangely has the highest amount of nightclubs. Meander through the Östermalmshallen market hall, contemplating all the colourful, fresh food.
And of course, our final stop is Djurgården often described as a relaxing oasis that has been owned by Royalty since the 15th Century. Here we’ll visit The Vasa Ship museum, the most visited museum in Scandinavia. Learn about the tragic event that took place in 1628 but is now visible for you to see 98% intact.
