Stockholm – A city of islands, a city for all
On top of the royal grandeur, unique design and trendy restaurants, urban Stockholm offers its visitors verdant parks and an archipelago atmosphere. Stockholm is built on 14 islands that are connected by 57 beautiful bridges.
Djurgården is filled with entertainment for all young-hearted and Astrid Lindgren fans. And, of course, families with kids: Skansen open-air museum and zoo, Junibacken children’s cultural centre, the Vasa Museum, Gröna Lund amusement park and the ABBA Museum are all located on this island. Walking and using public transportation are both easy options for moving around.
Stockholm’s newest restaurants and nightlife gems are all located near to the historical sights of Gamla Stan. Food culture here is rich: you can find everything between food trucks and three-star Michelin restaurants. When you stroll around the streets of the old town, your holiday in Stockholm is sweetened by the mesmerising scent of a freshly baked cinnamon bun. Going for a fika – having coffee and a piece of pastry – is a really Swedish thing, so take a breath in your new favourite café.
