Built on 14 islands, with a gorgeous architecture and lots of green areas and bays full of boats and yachts, Stockholm is by far one of the most beautiful capitals in all of Europe. And you’ll will be convinced of this as soon as you set foot on Swedish land.
There are a lot of tourist attractions which offer a little something for everyone so it’s best we leave you to customize your own schedule. Here you can find a full list of landmarks you shouldn’t miss! What we encourage you to do on a City Break in Stockholm is to explore and enjoy the lively atmosphere of the city and get lost on its narrow streets from Gamla Stan (the Old City) and photograph the city and its underground scene. We like to think that you’ve got it covered when it comes to what tourist attractions to go to, so let’s see what we think are the most beautiful places to explore and photograph in Stockholm.
1. Gamla Stan
Is the heart of the city and the area with the highest density of people (local, but foreigners especially) per square mile. We suggest you start with Stortget Square (photo 1), where the facades dating back to the XVIII century will impress you with their vibrant colors. Try to stray from the cobbled and crowded streets as you wonder off on one of the narrowest alley of Gamla Stan (photo 2). There you’ll find all the Instagram material which will make all your friends jealous.
Everyone says that the most beautiful sight of Stockholm can be cherished from the City Hall tower. You won’t stop taking pictures even in Monteliusvägen (photo 3), a quiet neighborhood with old houses and a 500 meter long alley which offers a fabulous view of the Mälaren lake, the City Hall and the old neighborhood. TIP: try to get there before sundown!
3. Metro in Stockholm
Many tourists passionate about urban and modern art come to Stockholm in particular to enjoy the metro stations which became on short notice real tourist attractions. And it’s understandable! The Swedish metro system has 100 stations which are decorated with various sculptures, paintings and installations. We were especially impressed by the Stadium Metro Station (photo 4), Rådhuset and Kungsträdgården. You can find here more recommendations.
We consider that if you’ll arrive at any of the recommended 3 sites and visit the museums of your choice, you’ll have a memorable experience in Stockholm and will want to visit again.
