Stockholm Sweden: The city that has it all

Updated: Jun 15

Stockholm, a city that has many things to offer; in fact, if we put them all on a list, it would be eternal. This cosmopolitan city is shaped by a group of islands where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. It is very easy to fall in love with this city, as every single corner is gorgeous; from the old town to the most modern areas, this city has many things to offer to those searching for a uniquely vibrant culture.

Today I'm bringing you just a few things to do in the vibrant capital city of Sweden.

  • Monteliusvägen

When you find yourself in a city with the most beautiful views, it's fair to say that you need to find that perfect spot where you can take a few pictures; Monteliusvägen is just that. This is a 500-meter trail that will take you to the ideal location for you to admire the beauty of Stockholm, and you can stay there for the sunset and admire the city. The path is lined with lovely houses; this path is also lined up with a safety rail for your protection, although it is already very safe to walk here.

  • Stortorget

The highest point of the island and the city's oldest square is a must if you ever find yourself in Stockholm. The name itself translates to "Big Square"; however, this is a pretty small square and one of the smallest in Europe. This is the area where Stockholm started to grow to become the city that it is today, and you can appreciate the stone infrastructure from the middle ages. You will also find the Nobel Museum, the Nobel Library, and a scenic area for you to admire. This is one of the most important places in the city, and it remains one of the tourist's favorite places, especially during Christmas time where the Christmas market takes place.

  • The Royal Palace

One of the largest palaces in all of Europe, with more than 600 rooms, this 18th-century palace offers you a total of 5 museums. However, this is not only a historical museum; this is also the primary home of the King of Sweden, King Carl XVI Gustaf. While you are there, you can also witness the royal change of guard, which happens at 11:45 am in summer and at 12:15 during wintertime. This will probably be one of your favorite experiences during your stay in Stockholm, especially because sometimes, the band likes to play some Abba music, which makes it even more entertaining. So to all the dancing queens out there, this is the place to be.
