There’s much more to Stockholm than ABBA, svelte blonde beauties and IKEA-clad homes. With over 30% of the city made up of sprawling green spaces, and another 30% being picturesque waterways, it’s nothing short of an urban paradise. The city’s personality fluctuates with the seasons – winters are cold, dark and magical, while summers are relaxed and seemingly endless care of the 18 or so hours of daily sunlight. Stockholm’s legendary Old Town, Gamla Stan, is a must-see for anyone new to the city, however there’s plenty more to experience off the beaten (cobblestone) path. From little independent galleries and cosy neighbourhood bars to world-class museums and designer boutiques, Stockholm is as charming as it is fashionable.
