Overview

Stockholm, Sweden is the largest city in Scandinavia and takes up space on 14 islands. Established in 1252, it grew into a popular port for cruises to Northern Europe. It mixes together its modern history with its medieval one- both preserving the old and embracing the new. Stockholm is constantly evolving and is Europe’s cultural capital with a sense of style, as well as the first Green capital. Everyone can find something to enjoy here, be it history, new trends in food and culture, and great shopping. 

Things to Do

Iconic Neighborhoods

  • Gamla Stan- Painstakingly preserved, this literally means “Old Town” and is one of the largest collections of 16th century houses in Europe. Wander through the enchanting medieval streets and see the vividly painted houses that you would more regularly find in the Mediterranean.
  • SoFo/Nytorget- South of Folkungagatan, travelers can fund unique coffee shops, vintage shops, and a kitsch flair everywhere. It’s also a haven for artists and designers. Don’t miss the Nytorget Urban Deli- a giant supermarket, deli, bistro, bar, and bakery complex all in one.
