Things to do in Stockholm. There are many interesting places well known and loved by tourists and also those less famous where without the crowds you can sit on a bench or grass in the park and admire the capital of Sweden. Stockholm can easily be explored on foot. You can see sights, museums, churches, viewpoints, parks and other interesting places walking down the streets of the city. View photos from Stockholm with descriptions and marked locations on the map. More information and a travel video here: Weekend in Stockholm.
Cityterminalen Stockholm - main bus station
The main bus terminal in central Stockholm. Flygbussarna buses come here from Stockholm-Skavsta Airport and you can get to the airport from here.
IKEA welcomes in the capital of Sweden :-) The old town (Gamla Stan) from the bus station is very close - about one kilometer.
Sergel's Square (Sergels torg)
Modern Stockholm - Sergel Square in the city center and 37 metre tall obelisk Crystal Vertical Accent in Glass and Steel (Kristallvertikalaccent).
Shops in the center
I like to watch shop window displays. You can always find something interesting. In my opinion, such exhibits often show the nature of the city.
Walk around town
I like Stockholm because outside the center was a quiet and peaceful city. The modern housing estate in Stockholm - Hammarby Sjöstad, was established in post-industrial areas.
Town on the water
Stockholm is situated on 14 islands, which are connected by 53 bridges. The whole area of Stockholm also includes 24,000 different sizes of islands and coastal rocks - Stockholm Archipelago.
Hotel in Stockholm
Elite Hotel Marina Tower on Saltsjö Bay near the Södermalm district. Interesting combination of colors and architecture. Click here to book a room in this hotel.
Architecture of the city
Stockholm is a very interesting city for architecture lovers. Discovering Stockholm on foot is a great experience. Get off the main streets to the side and there between the residential buildings you will find true architectural wonders. Amazing the semi-circular building and park Fatbursparken.
Stockholm Park, Fatbursparken
Stockholm is a green city - there are trees, lawns, parks and recreation areas. Park Fatbursparken in the Södermalm district. Stockholm is a perfect city for artists.

Places in Stockholm
Walking out of tourist routes I like the most ... There are no crowds of tourists and you can enjoy various interesting places in the city.
Södermalm district (Söder) south of the old town (Gamla Stan) in the center of Stockholm. Great place for walks among historic buildings and unusual shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.
Historic Church of Maria Magdalena Kyrka
There are a lot of sights, churches, palaces, tenements and historic houses, squares, monuments in Stockholm. You can watch it for weeks ...
Rest in Stockholm - relax in the open air
Rest in Stockholm. People are making picnics everywhere. They sit in the park or even in cemeteries, they eat, they drink beer or wine and just picnic ... Here may not be seen exactly but these two ladies drink beer ... in the cemetery ... It's just a rest in Stockholm.
A trip to Stockholm
June is a great time to plan your trip to Stockholm. The weather is very good around 21-24 degrees Celsius, and the day is very long - the so-called white nights :-) even at midnight is not dark.
Attractions in Stockholm
On the way to the viewpoint Mariaberget - it is worth to go there to watch the sunset. The sunset in Stockholm in June is very long so you do not have to rush very fast.
Landmarks in Stockholm
Historic townhouses on the north bank of Södermalm. A view of a footbridge leading to Riddarholmen. It is worth to go there in the evening when the setting sun illuminates the buildings.
Footbridge to the Mariahissen lift that connects two levels of the city. The building in which Stieg Larsson placed the apartment of the main character Mikael Blomkvist Millennium trilogy.
Historic church Allhelgonakyrkan
There are places in the capital of Sweden where you can feel like in the countryside. Silence, peace and wooden church among blooming lilacs ... Time stopped here ...
One of the many viewpoints in the city. Take a walk along the northern shore of Södermalm district - there are many places with great views of the city.
Lookout Tower Kaknäs
Kaknäs TV Tower in Stockholm is 155 meters high. The tower is open for tourists. You can enjoy views of the city and surrounding area.
Gröna Lund Amusement Park
The oldest lunapark in Sweden, founded in 1883. If you like such fun then you must go there necessarily! The screams of people from roller coaster or big carousel can be heard for miles! True madness in the Stockholm lunapark!
Worth to see - Skinnarviksberget
Take a walk on the highest hill in Stockholm - Skinnarviksberget in the evening. Bring something for dinner and admire the views of the setting sun. You can bring your barbecue and spend a very pleasant evening there. You can see the whole panorama of the city on a spherical picture.
Viewpoint in Stockholm - Skinnarviksberget
Great viewpoint in Stockholm - Skinnarviksberget. Perfect place for a date!
To get from the Baltic Sea to Stockholm you have to travel 120 kilometers through the Stockholm Archipelago (Stockholms skärgård) - one of the largest archipelagos in the Baltic. The Cruise ship sailing through this archipelago for 5 hours. Photo taken from the highest deck of a luxury cruise ship at the Masthamnen terminal.
Stockholm City Hall (Stockholms stadshus)
Stockholm City Hall is one of the main tourist attractions. From the tower of 106 meters (365 steps) you can admire the panorama of the old town.
We stayed here:
Cheap hostel very close to the center of Stockholm. The hotel is on the ship next to the Photographic Museum (Fotografiska) in Stockholm.
You can choose from a variety of cabin options from the cheapest multi-person room without bathroom, to cabin with window and bathroom - very different standards and prices.
The rooms are small but the proximity to the center and the waterbus stop (just behind the stern of the ship) are very good.
The breakfasts were good.
