About Stockholm

It is known as the “Venice of the North”. Stockholm is surrounded by water between the freshwater of Lake Malaren and on the eastern coast of Sweden, the Baltic Sea. Some people, on their first day on the city, get the vibe that it is an unwelcoming and remote place but after sticking around over a weekend, they saw a totally different side of the city. Stockholm is undoubtedly one of most stunning places in the world. Fifty-seven bridges connect each 14 islands together, where each island is filled with forest, lakeshore beaches and parkland. However if you’re getting ready to visit this ideal hub center for adventures, then you have to equip yourself with the facts to fully enjoy your visit to the Scandinavian city. “Fika” or “Coffee break” is part of the Swedes daily routine. In fact, it is part of their Swedish culture. If you enjoy relaxing under the sun with coffee and pastries then you’ll love this place. There are many different areas in the city where you can sit, have a cup of coffee, and enjoy the tranquility. Recycling is a bragging right. Swedes strictly adhere to recycling and it is not optional for them. An average home has three garbage bins with the proper segregation labels to rightly dispose their waste. So if it’s your first time in the city, make sure to clean your mess properly. Alcohol consumption in the country is controlled. In 1955, the government established Systembolaget stores, where the store has a monopoly on alcohol sales. No one else sells drinks with an above 3.5 alcohol content. It’s not easy to find these stores; most towns have one and only a few in the cities. So if you’re a recovering alcoholic, this is the best place to detoxify. Island hopping is a must! Whether you’re traveling alone or with your friends or family, it is a must to explore the different islands this beautiful city offers. While you’re at it, don’t miss out on any fun water activities available. In the summer, sailing trips are popular. You can either join a sailing tour for a fee or rent your own sailboat and tour the islands at your own pace. Another way to enjoy and know the place is by kayaking, where you can enjoy the nature in peace and solitude. Cutting is not allowed; always wait for your turn. Swedes have mastered the art of waiting on queue. Wherever they are in the city, whether they are in the cheese market, post office, boutique, pharmacy or anywhere else, everyone is to take a number and stand on queue for their turn. So don’t come pushing around or cutting the line short to make a purchase, be patient and respect the art of queuing. Stockholm Sweden is children’s dreamland. Kids will definitely enjoy the city because it has everything they love. It is filled with wildlife parks that children’s love and Skansen, the world’s first open-air museum is found in here.
