  • Last year I visited Stockholm for the second time. That was a weekend break in July. I've got an amazing time walking around the old town, Gamla Stan, which is a saffron-and-spice vision from the storybooks with one of Europe’s most arresting historic hubs with imposing palaces and razor-thin cobblestone streets. 

    Stockholm’s beauty and fashion sense could almost be intimidating. But get to know it better and there is little that is daunting about this top model city. Despite being spread across 14 islands, Stockholm's 57 bridges mean it is well-connected and essentially compact. Each neighbourhood has a distinct character, yet they’re close enough together you can easily spend time in several areas. In each, you'll find trend-setting design, inventive cuisine, unbeatable museums, great shopping, pretty parks and loads of atmosphere.
