Things to do in Stockholm


Get Your Bearings in Stockholm

See & Do

Take It or Leave It: Take a day-, dinner-, or brunch cruise or archipelago tour through Stockholm with Strömma Kanalbolaget.

Caution: Stockholm has a fitting reputation for expensive lodging. If youÂ're not earning Swedish Kronor, youÂ'll feel sticker-shocked.

Hot Tips: Sweden is one of the least intimidating, non-English speaking countries in the world to visit; nearly all Swedes, regardless of age, speak impressively good English!

Take It or Leave It: Surströmming!!! A summer dish, this fermented Baltic herring is the most putrid and odiferous fish dish in the world. Even if you donÂ't eat it yourself, you must witness others doing it!

Be Sure to Sample: Fika! Coffee is to the Swedes what tea is to the Brits. Swedes usually take fika at least twice a day, drinking delicious, dark coffee with buns, cookies and other goodies.

Avoid: Too many drinks, particularly mixed drinks; you'll be shocked at the cost of cocktails in Stockholm.

Hot Tips: YouÂ'd be surprised to learn how many popular, contemporary bands hail from SwedenÂ--like The Knife, Opeth, The Hives, Meshugga, Roxette, The Cardigans, Entombed, The Teddybears and uncounted more. Catch a live show of these bands in their home country.
