    Little big town

    Stockholm shouldn´t be compared to skyscraper cities. It is the capital city but still smaller dimensioned. The different island districts all have different characters but everywhere you´ll see nice old architecture. It´s easy to travel all over Stockholm by subway or bus and actually quite cheap, as a 24-hour ticket costs about ~12€, 72 hours around 25€ available offering trains, subways and busses.

    Insider Tip:If you visit Stockholm you should definately visit Gamla Stan, the historical part of Stockholm. Lots of beautiful coloured houses and architecture. If you want to go for a drink try Ayfur, a viking club in Väsdterlånggatan, opens at 17 o´clock. Also consider visiting Skansen, a historical open air museum and animal park. really nice!

    Interesting, nice place

    Stockholm was not as cold as I expected (although it was cold). :-) The city itself is kind of expensive, especially foods and accommodation, but you get fairly good quality for that. There are many things to see, lots of historic buildings, very many islands, and people are friendly. I definitely recommend visiting Stockholm if you haven't been yet.

    Insider Tip:Bring much money with you. :-)

    Stockholm in June

    3 days in Stockholm spent wandering the city and parks. The Gamla Stan and Skanstulls areas are well worth a look. The Djurgarden wad a lovely place to wander around and chill out for a couple of hours. We didn't make it to Fjaderholmarna (the closest Island) but it was recommended to us. The Vanadislunden park had a great view over the city. We thought Stockholm was a really pretty and lovely place to relax, wander and enjoy sunshine.

    Staff needs an attitude change

    Staff was very sketch plus no one on duty at night, no drinking or any type of atmosphere. Would not recommend this place in Sweden. Has to be something bigger, better, and not angry.
