Why You Should Head To Stockholm For Your Next City Break

I have a crush on all things Swedish. Heart- stoppingly beautiful women, a refreshingly uncomplicated attitude to sex (good combo, that), outstanding food
and beautiful natural landscapes — I urge you, book a flight to Stockholm immediately.

It’s as attractive a city as Europe has to offer, and while enchanting even in midwinter (when Swedes ice-skate to work), summer is hard to beat as the nights are virtually non-existent, meaning the locals — never short of an excuse to party — kick into overdrive.

The fun and action is all easily accessible, with the city spread across 14 islands and most of the highlights in the grander Gamla Stan (Old
Town), and the neighbouring buzzy boho Södermalm district on Söder island.

It’s all washed through with that enviable élan and sophistication Scandinavians carry
off effortlessly.
