      Wondering what to do in Stockholm?

      See Stockholm for yourself, and you’ll immediately understand why locals have dubbed it “beauty on water”. Not only are there countless things to do in Stockholm, but the city’s breathtaking beauty is the stuff of storybooks. Sweden’s capital, surrounded by water, fields, and forests, is a treasure trove of history and culture spread across 14 islands. Dozens of museums harbor cultural gems from the eras of warships and Vikings, while the “Old Town”, Gamla Stan – a real-life fairytale complete with a royal palace and gabled buildings set along quaint cobblestone streets – is a perfectly-preserved medieval center with some of the most amazing things to do in Stockholm.

      With 14 fantastic islands to choose from, you’ll be easily spoiled for things to do in Stockholm. There’s much more to the city than Gamla Stan, and each of Stockholm’s islands is a microcosm with its own unique attractions. The island of Södermalm is the city’s capital of cool, with vintage stores and hipster cafés attracting the alternative crowd; tiny Skeppsholmen is loved for its relaxing atmosphere and cultural attractions; and peaceful Djurgården is filled to the brim with quirky museum-hopping opportunities. Between these distinct locations, the things to do in Stockholm are endless.

      Past meets present

      Home to historic Gamla Stan, one of the best-preserved medieval centers in Europe, Stockholm is a picture of the past. The things to do in Stockholm span centuries, and history – in the form of razor-thin cobbled streets, medieval cathedrals and churches, and 17th-century buildings with colorful facades – is tangible. But the city is more than a snapshot of centuries ago. Simply stroll, sail, or hop on the subway and you’ll travel through time to contemporary neighborhoods known for dining and design, where stylish locals move between cafés, boutiques, and other cool things to do in Stockholm.

      A smörgåsbord of delights await you in the local food scene – in fact, some of the best things to do in Stockholm revolve around food. Swedish cuisine might not be the most famous in the world, but one day spent exploring the city’s markets, restaurants, cafés, street food stands will have you planning your next trip. From Baltic herring with a side of lingonberries to lightly smoked, slightly sour pork sausage (or maybe a slice of liquor-soaked arraksbollar cake that’s been lavishly rolled in chocolate sprinkles, if you have a sweet tooth), the food in Stockholm is always a treat.

        Sara, our tour guide was excellent. She was on time, communicated well upfront - and was informative, good personality, knowledgeable, and fun to spend the day with. We enjoyed our private tour of the city very much, and highly recommend Sari and Unscripted if this is the level of tour given.

        Sara was great! She took us to various parts of the city while highlighting some history, fun facts and local culture. We had a great time learning about the city and getting oriented, which served as well during our week in Stockholm
