Much like many Scandinavian cities, Stockholm is even more magical in the winter; the crisp blanket of snow accentuates the myriad of natural colours that decorate the city, creating a postcard picture image that will inevitably become the envy of your friends. Each of the 14 islands that comprise Sweden’s capital are as beautiful as the other, though Djurgarden National Park won the aesthetics jackpot; verdant fields and surrounding fresh water create an idyllic setting that is perfect for a romantic stroll underneath the mild rays of the afternoon sun. Part of the park’s allure lies in its proximity to urban areas – the Old Town is only a short ride away – offering a remarkable insight into Stockholm’s architectural history.
When a city is as stunning as Stockholm, it is easy to become overawed by nature, but the list of things to do even stretches beyond the endless greenery. For a portal into Stockholm’s art and culture scene, Fotografiska showcases an array of enigmatic pictures and often hosts unique exhibitions. If museums and galleries aren’t your thing, head to the wealth of activity on show: K25 is a food hall offering a plethora of culinary dishes, and in the evening, Urban Deli affords copious tasty foods and refreshing drinks, made all the more spectacular on the rooftop overlooking the city. The downside to the selection of attractions is the popularity with tourists, so for a more tranquil experience, Södermalm affords an alternative assemblage of entertainment.
There are efficient bus and train systems in operation throughout the city, though most choose to travel the compact areas by bike for an active and cheap way to travel.
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden, and the most populous city in Scandinavia, laying on the southeast coast of the country. The port is oftentimes used as the gateway to other capital cities in Northern Europe, as well as shorter crossings around Scandinavia.
