Perfect destinations for a hipster

By now I imagine you already know what the word " hipster " stands for. It is a contemporary subculture that includes young upper-middle-class bohemians who are often associated with a series of trends, such as wearing second-hand clothes, buying artisan products, listening to alternative music or consuming organic food. In short, it is much more than wearing the typical beard that is still fashionable and that will have affected Gillette sales so much.

Having said that, it should be said that it is not as easy to be a hipster in Soria as it is to be one in one of the cities that I mention below. They are the perfect destination for all hipster, so I recommend taking note if you want to live an experience away from the conventional.

Stockholm (Sweden)

He could not be left out thanks to the Island of Södermalm , which is the largest island in the capital of Sweden. Although at the beginning of the 20th century it was a working-class neighborhood that stood out for its wooden houses painted in different colors, today it has become Stockholm’s Soho, a neighborhood that invites you to discover its art galleries and trendy restaurants. while you bring out your most bohemian side in the designer stores that are mixed between the houses.

There are 37 vegan establishments, 125 coffee shops for every 100,000 people and 9 record stores for every 100,000 people. Normal that it is considered as the mecca of hipsters .
