Stockholm is one of the most astonishing places in the world to visit.
The warmth of its people enhance the architecture and nature within the city.
Like any location, the time of year you decide to visit can change the entire feel of a trip. Despite what people may think, any season is a wonderful season to visit Stockholm, as each offers something a little different.
One of the activities to enjoy in the spring is the annual Tap Dance Festival. Festivals like these get you out of your comfort zone and get you to enjoy activities that you never knew were so much fun. You’ll never know, you may go home and decide to pick up tap dancing. Stockholm is also full of magnificent cherry trees that blossom in the spring. A stroll through one of Stockholm's impressive parks to see the cherry blossoms is never a bad idea.
Summer in Stockholm is a beautiful time. The islands of the Archipelago can be the perfect places for a Swedish lunch by the sea. There is also the Midsummer Festival for travelers to participate in, where they can get in on the maypole dancing, the singing, and the merrymaking. Another terrific place to visit in the summer is the open-air museum of Skansen at Djurgarden.
The colors of fall seem a little more magical, as they highlight the city of Stockholm's natural aura. The colors throughout the city make the cafes a little cozier, and gatherings seem a little more intimate. A superb cup of coffee while strolling to the next museum or park down the street makes you feel like you could be smack in the middle of a romance novel.
Despite what you may think, Christmas is a wonderful time to visit Stockholm. I mean, let's face it, Christmas is an excellent time to do anything. Winter in Stockholm is a time to enjoy the food, drink, and people. This is when you should look for those places that aren't so mainstream, and get in touch with locals for some great saffron buns, julmust, and some Sankta Lucia songs.
No matter when you decide to go to Stockholm, you will not be disappointed. Stockholm is a fantastic city whose history dates back to the 13th century. This long history has laid the foundation for a modern city with a country feel.
