    Favorite thing: Explore Stockholm on foot. On my walk around town, I came across Klara kyrka, the cathedral in the background. The statue in the foreground carrying the big clock is on a different building. I think it may have been a storefront.

    Favorite thing: I enjoyed wandering around the city of Stockholm very much.. I never really knew where I was going, but I ended up finding some amazing spots... I loved looking over the black tile roofs, and coming across a small alleyway.. watching the boats in the harbor was excellent and there were many interesting art galleries...

    Fondest memory: I enjoyed the old island of Stockholm.. There are many great restaurants around there and the architecture is much older making the experience more pleasurable for me, anyways...

    Favorite thing: Put on a pair of good shoes and walk around the city: Old Town (don't miss a guided tour), Söder (known to be the bohemian and artistic island), Djurgården (here you can walk for hours and Stockholmers do every weekend), Kungsholmen (mixed but getting more 'hip' every day, this is where I live by the way), Östermalm (the home of the bourgeoisie, upper class but with beautiful buildings), Vasa- & Birkastan (home for young-yppies-that-just-became-parents kind of place, lots of nice cafés) and of course City (which you can't avoid).

    Favorite thing: Walk around the seesides of Stockholm! There are many seesides, as Stockholm is build on a lot of Islands (I don't remember how many...) and WATER is one of Stockholms most charming assets!

    Adding to that, the water is clean enough to bade in, and you will see people who catch salmon from bridges and docks in the middle of downtown Stockholm!

    So please, don't forget so just relax and enjoy the beautiful views and the marvellous combination of green nature, water, old buildings and citylife - all at once!

    Fondest memory: If you are just a tiny bit fond of nature... let a steemboat take you from downtown Stockholm (Nybrokajen or Strömkajen) into the archipelago! Go for walks around the different Islands, bring a picnic, go bading in a bay where there is no one else around... have dinner in the marvellous sunset... pick some blueberries and mushrooms...

    A marvellous way to experience all this is to rent a boat. In Sweden you may anchor in most places, nature is free to enjoy for anyone!

    This enormous freedom and luxury comes with lots of responsibility though! Please respect our beautiful nature - do not distroy anything, do not make fire on the smooth cliffs by the waterside, do not trespass private property, do not scare the animals, do not take birds eggs and so on! These are the rules of the game, that make it possible for us to enjoy our nature to the fullest!

    You absolutely must walk...

    Favorite thing: You absolutely must walk around and discover the city. To take a bicycle is an option, as especially in the outskirts there are dedicated bicycle roads everywhere. The normally follow the waterline Södermalm (the South city), Norrmalm in the North (the business area), Kungsholmen and the three Islands in between: Gamla Stan (the ancient city), Skeppsholmen and Djurgarden.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory will be “Sigtuna” and the area around. In the year 980 this little village was the capital of Sweden. Plenty of “runes” (not ruins) are witnesses of that time. A beautiful the combination of lakes, land, forest and houses. And so peaceful. I could have stayed in this area much longer, even though nothing else was going on. Sigtuna has also the smallest town hall in Europe (or Northern Europe?)

    Walk - most things are within...

    by Sweeney Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Walk - most things are within walking distance and you discover lots of lovely places by chance this way.

    However, the T (tunneltrain) is very easy and quick so use it to cover greater distances.

    Fondest memory: The local food and all manner of great restaurants.

  • Stockholm is one of the coziest capitals...

    by Jim70563 Written Jul 21, 2003

    Favorite thing: I love the fact that I feel like I am in a small city, no matter where I am. The people are not in a rush. The car drivers are for the most part polite. You can walk along a harbor, see museums, walk in narrow cobblestoned streets, climb the Stadhuset tower, take a boat ride, eat a picnic...all within a mile of Gamla Stan.

    Perfect city for walks with your family.

    Surprise!

    by Sharrie Written Feb 25, 2003

    Fondest memory: Walking around the city & exploring. Here, I found something familiar from back home. The country's airline city office is located on this street! Well, it's not the best airline in the world but it's still from home. So, while I was alone in a foreign land, I felt comforted :-) & surprise.
