The Swedish capital is at once historic, modern, romantic, intellectual, grandiose and elegantly understated.
Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and comprises 14 islands and more than 50 bridges joining them all together. It is a city that has a young and vibrant brigade on the cutting edge of fashion and culture, as well as a long and steeped history.
An exciting side tour in Stockholm, especially for the children is a visit to Junibacken, a theme park for children. It is inspired by the writer Astrid Lindgren and the park is based on her writings. Lindgren’s most famous character is Pippi Longstocking and her house, Villa Villekulla is the resounding highlight to a train ride through the park. There is also the ABBA Museum, filled with ABBA memorabilia, which cannot be missed.
The traditional food in Sweden is delicious. Soul food or ‘humsnskost’ is the Swedish equivalent of middle-class country-style cooking and it has slowly moved into pubs (krog) as traditional pub food. It’s a mix of vegetables and potatoes, meat from farm or wild animals, fresh fish and herbs from local gardens.
Another popular local dish is Raggmunk – pancakes made from grated or ground potato, flour, and egg, seasoned with onions and garlic and served with chunks of bacon.
It is not all about traditional food, with fine dining restaurants, family restaurants and takeaway culture thriving in the city.

Stockholm is a busy city, with a million people calling it home, but there are so many accommodation options for everyone visiting, and they will fit any budget. It is generally not cheap however, so a little bit more research will find you the bargains.
Most visitors, however, end up in the Gamla Stan or the Old Town area, where there are plentiful restaurants, cafes, and bars as well as accommodation options for all.
Those people visiting for business head for the Norrmalm area, where most of the commercial aspects of the city are housed, but where there are many upmarket business accommodation options.
You’re going to hire a bicycle in Stockholm because it’s the thing to do. Everybody is on a bike or walking, and it’s a tolerant and friendly vibe. There is also an excellent public transport system, with bus lines, commuter rails and trams throughout the city.Share this tour
