Where to go

Stockholm – Sweden's Stockholm is one of the most beautiful major cities in the world. It is a picturesque mirage of colours that shimmer between the waters and the skies all summer, while it becomes a winter wonderland when the snow comes. It is a vibrant and modern city with airy establishments and sleek architecture – that which produces edgy and hip fashion and the best nightclubs. Visit the old town called Gamla Stan, the main city centre, the skargard, or the 24,000 rocky islands that surround the capital, and a handful of museums and restaurants, including Skansen, the Royal Armoury, ABBA: The Museum, and the Medeltidsmuseet. 

Gothenburg – Gothenburg comes in at a close second when it comes to the cities of Sweden. Goteborg or Gothenburg has a great appeal for many tourists and locals due to its cosmopolitan vibe. It is filled with contemporary art and music, yet neoclassical evidences, especially in its architecture, is very much present in the area. It is quite a sight to behold as it creates a rather beautiful contrast for the city and a backdrop for its real sights: the culture. Visit the various points here, including the Kungsparken or the King's park, the city's 'Champs-Elysees', and the Avenyn Boulevard, where upscale bars and swanky joints come alive at night. Don't forget to visit the Ostra Hamngatan too for some shopping.  

Malmo – Malmo is Sweden's third largest city, home to Scandinavia's tallest building, beautiful parks, edgy contemporary museums, and some good cuisine. Visit its many restaurants which offer cuisines from around the world, or delve into its museums to discover more about Scandinavia.
