Stockholm (population: 897,000) may make you feel uncomfortable because of how fashionable the city and its locals look. But not one to throw prom queen tantrums, Stockholm is also easy to fall in love with. The city is basically a group of 14 islands that are connected to each other via a network of enchanting bridges. Each island presents trendy architecture, amazing cuisines, excellent shopping, soothing natural beauty and unmissable museums.
It makes sense to cover the best first. Skansen Museum, the greatest outdoor exhibition on the planet, is the first thing you need to see. Set in Dkurgarden, one of the city islands, the museum isn’t just an ode to architecture, it is also famous for its enviable natural beauty. Another major wonder, the Vasa Museum (home to the majestic Vasa warship that was salvaged from the Stockholm harbor), is also located close by. Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm, needs more time, so try and dedicate an entire day to it. Full of ancient palaces (most notable being the Stockholm Palace), picturesque buildings and fairy-tale sights, the best thing to do here is to lose yourself in one of its winding passageways.
