Old Town

Old Town is where Stockholm got its start, and today, it's a big tourist destination. The shops are both Swedish and international, and it is still a good place to see some of the city's traditions.

See & Do
Boat Trip/Island Visits

You can swim and fish in the waters right off the city, because they're so clean, and a trip to the archipelago is a must. Motor and sailboat trips depart regularly from the Port of Stockholm.

See & Do
Södermalm

The district of Södermalm is more quirky and alternative than the rest of Stockholm, especially SoFo, short for South of Folkungagatan, a neighborhood of mainly hip bohemians spanning all ages.
