    Generally i found sweden safe but uncomfortable

    I felt out of place and stuck out like a sore thumb. Swedish ppl keep to themselves, even though they stay super nice, you know you make them uncomfy so you feel uncomfy and like youre intruding...guess they are not used to seeing a black person who eats pork, drinks alchohol and goes into a restuarant lol

    Insider Tip:People need to relax

    Stockholm's Snazzy

    Stockholm is a beautiful city to walk around, the buildings and waterways are amazing. Had some great food there at Vapiano's, and I had moose meatballs at another restaurant - I highly recommend trying them! The museums are interesting and I loved the aquarium there!

    Insider Tip:You can get into a lot of the museums for free if you say you're 18, only some ask for ID.

    The old and the new

    I came to Stockholm after Oslo and the thing that surprised me more is that it has an old part of the city that is really well kept. The city is wonderful, expensive as part of Scandinavia, but worth it. IT was a bit hard for me to get my way, also the weather is not that great, but as for the rest, I recommend the city.

    Insider Tip:Stockholm free tours

    come back????? not sure

    Is a different city, I liked the landscape, but for me everything is just expensive, if you want to go out at night you really need to have money.

    Insider Tip:you need to have money, everything is twice expensive than the others country in Europe.
