Visit the oldest part Gamla Stan, Östermalm for some elegance and exclusivity, Djurgården to have a easy Sunday walk or Södermalm for shopping. Wherever you are, don’t forget to take part of the Swedish ‘fika’ by gathering in coffeeshops for a coffee and pastry. You will thank us later.
48 Hours Stockholm
Gamla Stan is the oldest part of the city. Which made it the prettiest part for us as well. Get lost by walking through the small coloured streets like narrowest street Mårten Trotzigs. There are several beautiful churches and museums in Gamla Stan, including Sweden’s national cathedral Stockholm Cathedral and the Nobel Museum. The largest of the attractions in the district is the Royal Palace, one of the largest palaces in the world with over 600 rooms.
Sodermalm is the favourite neighbourhood among locals known for it’s vintage shops, art galleries and cafés. Some might say it’s the hipster area of Stockholm. Every Scandinavian brand has it’s presents here. Make sure you visit stores like Grandpa, Aesop, Granit and Hope.
Beloved by both stockholmers and visitors, Djurgården is a tranquil oasis in the middle of Stockholm. It collects many of the city’s most famous museums like the Vasa Museum, Gröna Lund, the Abba museum and Skansen. Spend your Sunday by going to one of the museums in the morning and a walk through the park afterwards.
