Get Cozy For Three Days In Dreamy Stockholm
On your trip to Stockholm you will immerse yourself into one of the most hip and fashionable cities in the world that is also home to one of the most beautiful, quaint old towns in Europe. Beginning with the island known for its vintage, eccentric bars, coffee shops, and all-around good vibes, take a walking tour of some of the most striking, classically Stockholm streets. Your second day will take you through the old town with its narrow colorful alleys, and lantern-lit restaurants.
Södermalm - Katarina Church - Medborgarplatsen
Take a walking tour of Södermalm. Begin walking through the Katarina-Sofia neighborhood. This area has a multitude of fashionable shops and restaurants.
You will stumble upon many side streets with unique stores. While in this area, take the time and make sure to see Katarina Church. Just a few minutes walking from here, Medborgarplatsen is located in the heart of the island on a main shopping street, Söderledstunneln. In order to get the most out of Södermalm, make sure to stroll down the entire street. There are plenty of large name stores as well as side streets with more exceptionally chic boutiques.
Come back to where you began using the parallel street, Götgatan. Then you are ready to make your way to another must see street selling everything from African art to licorice to second-hand clothing is called Hornsgatan.
From here, walk head for the water where you will find Monteliusvägen. This is the name of the street where you will not be able to resist taking out your camera and snapping a photo of the fantastic views of the old town and the harbor.
Gamla Stan - Stortorget
It’s time to see the homeliest and sweetest area of Stockholm. A charming little island located just off the mainland of the city, Gamla Stan is breathtaking. Each street is a postcard. Tiny restaurants and cafés line the narrow streets, and each building a different color. One of the cheeriest areas is a square called Stortorget.
Many people come here to sit on the bench and people watch, and in winter, it is turned into an ice skating rink.
You will also find the baroque-style Stockholm Royal Palace and a beautiful 19th-century church just next to the residence called Riddarholmen.
You will want to tour both buildings as well as the Nobel Museum, which showcases winners through the decades.
Skansen - Vasa Museum
Take a ferry to the island of Djurgården and visit Skansen. This open-air museum was the first of its kind in Sweden. It offers incredibly realistic insight into what a 19th-century Swedish village would have looked like. Skansen offers more than just that. It also houses a zoo filled with native Scandinavian animals.
Enjoy a short walk to the Vasa Museum to touch on some Viking culture and take a glance at an incredible original Viking boat.
You should have time to see the nearby park, Gälerparken, as well. It’s waterfront views and colorful cottages aren’t to be missed. Ferry back to the mainland to see an area that well compares to New York’s Upper East Side, Ostermalm. This ritzy locality is a residential neighborhood of Stockholm and home to the arts.
If you enjoy the performing arts, take your last evening in the city to another level by viewing a show at Dramaten, the National Theatre built in 1788.
Finally, explore famous museums and the mainland neighborhood of Ostermalm to “see how the other half lives.”
