Stockholm: The Perfect Blend of Yesterday and Today
Style is of the utmost importance in Stockholm.
It's a designer's paradise where every aspect of the city seems to be elaborately intentional. From cafes to clothing, Stockholm boasts luxury and eye-catching detail.
It's the perfect place to get inspired, making it Sweden's hottest destination. Your stay at your holiday home in Stockholm will be shrouded in the architectural and natural beauty that combines history and modern tastes.
Stockholm's love for style makes for an absolutely enchanting aesthetic that combines cobblestone streets, renowned museums, glittering treasures, and a grand palace. It looks like the Vikings collaborated with the world's best designers to create this magnificent Swedish city. Just spending time meandering through the narrow streets and taking everything in can be an exciting experience for the day.
Stockholm is an archipelago spread across 14 islands. Walking and biking across bridges is the best way to get from island to island, while also soaking up the sights. Getting around by ferry and by metro is also very easy, especially since most of the signage is written in both Swedish and English.
If you have a taste for everything vintage, Södermalm is abounding with shops that sell clothing from throughout the decades. There are also endless record shops and flea markets around every corner. If you love the hunt, you never know what old thing you will leave Södermalm with!
Fotografiska is a waterfront photography gallery that lives in a gorgeous red brick building. The walls are covered in fascinating photos and the gallery is home to one of the best cafes in Stockholm. Visitors love to hang out in the airy cafe with a warm cup of coffee and a delicious pastry.
Speaking of photographs, you won't find many places more photogenic than Tantolunden Park. The serene gardens here are beautifully manicured, and vibrantly-painted cottages peek out of the hillsides. It's the perfect place to go boat-watching, picnicking, or sketching in the summer. In the winter, many people love to take their toboggans down the snowy slopes!
Långholmen Island is another lovely spot for soaking up the sunshine and splashing around in the pristine waters surrounding the archipelago. Rocky plateaus and flat stretches of sand make Långholmen a wonderful place to spend the afternoon after wandering around Hornstull. If you are heading back into the city for the evening, you can wash up after your swim under one of Långholmen's showers.
Hornstull is home to the Bio Rio cinema cafe. This classic 1940s theater hosts indie films every Sunday morning at 10:30 along with a smorgåsbord of light foods and endless coffee. Many of the films are in English or screen with subtitles.
