A Quick Guide To Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is, in my opinion, one of the coolest cities in Europe. Located on Sweden’s east coast, this capital city is famous for its great restaurants, fun nightlife and beautiful people. And like the people, the city of Stockholm is also stunning.

With a population of roughly 910,000, Stockholm is the most populous city in the Nordic countries. But the magical architecture of Gamla Stan (old town) with its colorful buildings and cobblestone streets – along with the meandering waterways and beautiful parks – make this city feel small and intimate. Here’s a quick guide to Stockholm to help you make the most of your visit to the coolest city in Europe!

I am obsessed with Berns Asiatiska – a gorgeous restaurant hall with crystal chandeliers and mirrors everywhere, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner in an opulent setting! We had a big group dinner here with 12 people. The sharing menu has a great assortment and the staff does a good job at staying on top of requests. After dinner head over to their club to dance the night away! This place goes off till 4AM!

I love Berns Hotel so much that I stayed here on both of my trips to Stockholm! This boutique hotel dates back to 1863, mixing eclectic modern design with old school luxury, and has welcomed famous guests such a Rihanna, Noomi Rapace, Bill Gates and the Dalai Lama. Centrally located in front of Berzelii Park, close to the train station, waterfront and old town, Berns offers 60 individually decorated rooms and suites, two fantastic restaurants and several trendy bars that stay open into the early mornings hours, creating the perfect atmosphere for travelers looking for a lively hotel stay. I love the location, the fun party vibe, and the friendly staff who are always kind and helpful.

    Hi Vanessa, there are some great recommendations here! I have my one way ticket to Europe booked in just a few weeks. I decided not to make an entire itinerary or plan and just go with the flow while I am travelling. Stockholm has definitely now got a spot on my must visit list. Is it really as expensive as people say, in comparison to other European cities? Thanks again!

      Hi Emily! Thanks for your comment! Your trip sounds so fun! Stockholm is about the same pricing as other western European cities like Paris, London and Madrid. You can find affordable places to stay like AirBnB and affordable meals. Most of the places I listed are upscale and more expensive but there are a lot of other affordable options in the city. I think you will be really happy you visited Stockholm! Please let me know if you have more questions! XO, Vanessa
