Stockholm: the places you cannot miss in the Venice of the North

Stockholm is the most important city in Sweden from a political, cultural and economic point of view. This capital, which dates from the year 1252, is also one of the most beautiful in the country and in the world due to its appearance, which tends to recall Venice. Not surprisingly, it is known as the Venice of the North . But what is there to see in it? What can be done beyond the typical tourist visits?

What to see

Stockholm is a city with a lot of history. One of the main visiting points is the Drottningholm Palace , which is inspired by 17th century French architecture. The Artipelag , the museum of Modern Art, which is located on the island of Värmdö, is also worth seeing.

Recommended visits are also the Gustav III Pavilion , the Ftografiska photography museum and the National Museum in which the Rembrandt exhibition stands out. And, different, but equally interesting, is the Vasa Museet . A ship that sank within minutes of setting sail in 1628 and was sunk until 1961.

To do?

In addition to visiting these points of tourist interest, Stockholm has many streets that must be traveled because they have a lot of charm and beauty, apart from having more than interesting shops of big brands such as, for example, Balenciaga or Lanvin, among others.

These and other firms are joined by other boutiques, which should be taken into account, such as Acne, which is one of the most important fashion brands in Sweden. For jewelry , a good recommendation is Efva Attling.

Architecture and design is one of the strengths of this country. In Stockholm, there are specialty stores such as Asplund, which is a clear example of Scandinavian design , as well as Garbo Interiors, which is inspired by the stage of King Gustav III .


And of course, whenever you travel, you must try the gastronomy . Among the best options is Erik’s Gondolen, which combines traditional local and international cuisine with stunning views of the bay and the city. Not to be missed is the bar, which is shaped like a gondola over the sea. And, to eat something more informal , the alternative goes through Matbaren, which is from the Swedish chef Mathais Dahlgren.
