Stockholm is very special in this way that i was there for more than a week and there was not a single day that i had a task on my hand to do. This City has lot to offer to its Visitors. There are very interesting Museums and historical monuments. I would recommend that you must read a bit of the history of the city before you go to those places because then you will enjoy it much more.
Fondest memory: I just captured this Sunset time while walking my way back to T-Centralen from Gamla Stan. By the way, Stockholm is a bit strange as well ;-) because there is not a particular direction from which the sun rises the whole year and sets in the whole year. It keeps on changing depending upon the months and seasons.
Stroll along the waterside and bring your pic-nic.
In the early summer night (when it's sunny) nothing could be better than to enjoy Stockholm sunset on any of the west shores of the city, for example:
- Gälarparken and the walk to the tivoli ferry (on Djurgården)
- Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen (the two islands opposite the Castle)
- Riddarholmen (island connected by bridge from Gamla stan, the Old Town)
- Långholmen (the park island north of the south part of the city, Södermalm)
Short of time but want to see the Archipelago?
A miniature version you'll find only 20 minutes by boat from Slussen or Nybrokajen to Fjäderholmarna. Fish restaurant, marine museum, cliffs, views.
If the weather is nice then you have to go to Kakn?stornet TV tower where you can see a beautiful sunset while you are eating dinner in the tower restaurant.
I've taken this picture there.
Don't miss it.
Visit Stockholm in the summer, and you won't regret it. It's quite possibly the best city in the world between the months of June and August.
Fondest memory: Sunsets over the Old Town.
