Stockholm, Sweden Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

One of northern Europe’s most beautiful cities, Stockholm is definitely worth a look for anyone who can fit it into their itinerary. Some things here (including alcohol in bars) can be shockingly expensive, but at least quality is high and the city is unique.

The city center is compact enough to enjoy in a few days, centering around the royal palace on Gamla Stan island.
