There are 14 islands in the city of Stockholm. It is a city with cobblestone streets and typical gabled buildings. It is a city with breath taking green scenery, outstanding architecture, delectable cuisine, historical sites, and, of course, the ABBA museum.
Stockholm takes pleasure in being dubbed the “Open City.” Stockholm is for everyone, regardless of your identity, your religion, gender, colour, or sexual orientation, or whether you want luxury, adventure, or both. We experienced stunning scenery, clear blue skies, chilly temperatures, and a trip to Stockholm in the winter. Be sure to dress warmly! The activities we’ve included below are the ideal for keeping warm and exploring Stockholm in the winter, but they should also be on your summer travel itinerary. Try to squeeze as many of these into your 48 hours in Stockholm.
The Culture of Fika:
Do you know what fika is? Fika, which can be loosely translated as “coffee break,” is a common practise in Stockholm. The custom of going for fika, though, involves slowing down, taking your time, enjoying a sweet treat, and spending quality time with friends—unlike locations like Italy where you might grab an espresso extremely quickly. The idea was to serve seven different kinds of sweet buns or cakes. This dates back to a time when it was believed that having seven options prepared was a sign of a good housewife. Any less preparation would be deemed laziness by the housewife! Although it is a fairly antiquated idea, this custom may still be extended to Swedes visiting their grandparents.
Gronalund-Stockholm Amusement park:
There are 31 different rides and attractions in the park. There are thrill rides, funhouses (which were haunted when we went! ), and everything in between. The greatest views of Stockholm will be your reward for your daring if you ride one of the tall coasters that propel you straight up in the air!
Where to stay in Stockholm?
Nothing compares to Stockholm. The capital of Sweden is one of the world’s most distinctive cities; it is a sprawling wonder composed of 14 islands that is rich in culture, natural beauty, and an apparently never-ending supply of style.
Gamla Stan, often known as the Old Town, is where Stockholm’s inner city centres around its mediaeval core. Parliament, the Royal Palace, holiday markets, museums, vibrant churches, and winding cobblestone alleyways can all be found here. The challenge is figuring out where to start.
