Stockholm

— 6 nights

Beauty by the Water

One of Europe's most culturally diverse cities, Stockholm extends over 14 islands, united by a series of tunnels and bridges.
Let the collections at Skansen and Hallwyl Museum (Hallwylska Museet) capture your imagination. Get some cultural insight at ABBA The Museum and Drottningholm Palace. Change things up with these side-trips from Stockholm: Vasteras (Kyrkbacken, Bondtorget, &more), Uppsala (Uppsala Domkyrka, Linnaeus Garden, &more) and Skokloster Castle (in Skokloster). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Fotografiska Stockholm, see the interesting displays at Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, take an in-depth tour of Medeltidsmuseet, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Strandvagen.

To see ratings, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Stockholm day trip website.

Mother Svea
Once the land of the Vikings, Sweden today combines a long and fascinating history with a propensity for the very modern. The grand Romanesque churches that dot the countryside contrast with the clean, simple lines and partiality for organization the country is known for. With its reverence for the shy, reserved, and considerate, the nation exudes a sensation of being comfortable. Peek into the quiet lives from afar, gather around traditional "fika" coffee with loved ones, or dine on meatballs, herring, and potatoes. Immerse yourself in nature among the forests and trails so respected by their citizens, and take in the latest design and cultural offerings in this modest yet aesthetically savvy country.
