Stockholm

Even though Stockholm is sometimes overshadowed by some of the other major European cities when it comes to top destinations, Stockholm is a truly mesmerising city that can't be missed. It's often known as the Venice of the North because of its beautiful architecture and incredible setting by the sea. We recommend visiting during the summer (July or August) when the weather allows you to make the most of its offering. Be ready to be dazzled by its buildings and interior design, its beautiful nature and the inherent style of its people...

Stay

The Lydmar

Situated by the National Museum, The Lydmar Hotel is an elegant boutique hotel that offers wonderful views of the Old Town and the Royal Palace. We love its contemporary decoration full of vintage touches, making it a very cosy yet refined stay..

Address

Södra Blasieholmshamnen 2, 103 24 Stockholm, Sweden

Story

If you are into rustic chic, then The Story Hotel is for you, as you will feel at home with its contemporary raw interiors. This hotel represents understated nordic luxury at its best and is also famous for its delicious drinks.

Address

Riddargatan 6, 114 35 Stockholm, Sweden

Hotel J

The Hotel J, in the Nacka Strand marina, is for those who love being surrounded by beautiful nature yet be a stones throw away from the city centre. This is an incredibly charming hotel, with amazing views of the sea (the sea is literally at your doorstep) and a very stylish nautical decor (think Lexington or Gant). Typical Swedish breakfast is served in the main room, which feels more like a great Swedish home than a hotel. And there is also a very nice restaurant on a deck over the water. The cherry on the cake is that you can get to the city centre in less than 20min by boat (charming taxi boats pass by all the time)

Shop

Biblioteksgatan & Gamla Stan

We love Swedish fashion brands such as Acne, Filippa K and Tiger of Sweden, and you can find them all in the very centre around Biblioteksgatan. For smaller craft stores, head to the old town (Gamla Stan) and get lost in its endearing streets...

Secret Stockholm

Swedish Summer

Those who know any Swedes, know that they have an endless and unshakable love affair with the Swedish summer. And if you go in the summer to the archipelago that surrounds Stockholm you will understand why... The unspoiled rocky beaches and tranquil waters are coupled with evergreen nature and incredibly charming wooden houses, all flanked by the purest sunshine. If you go to Stockholm in the summer, taking a day (or half-a-day) trip to the archipelago is a must. You will then understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to Swedes and their beloved summers...
