I’m honestly surprised I haven’t visited Stockholm sooner! It’s only an hour flight from Finland so it’s an easy weekend getaway. Going in January was also fun since it’s not a high tourist time so there were no lines, but it was pretty cold! I’m excited to share how I spent my weekend in Stockholm!
Stockholm has some pretty cool museums! The bad thing is that they are all pretty expensive and there is no student discount for any of them. Here are a list of some worth checking out.
- Vasa Museum
- ABBA Museum
- The Nobel Museum
- Nordic Museum
The Largest Art Gallery
AKA the metro. Stockholm is home to the largest art gallery that is also their metro system. We paid for a ticket and spent an hour riding the metro and getting off at the stops to look at all of the cool designs. Sorry for bad quality pics, but the lighting was not the best down there!
Walk Around Old Town
See the iconic colorful buildings of Stockholm located in Old Town.
Eat at the Ostermalm Food Hall
A traditional Scandinavian food hall with all the delicious things to eat! When I went it was still under construction and located across the street, but still worth a visit! I had a dish with Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and lingonberries. So delicious! I would also recommend trying the fish soup.
Where to Stay
I stayed at the Generator Hostel Stockholm. They have a bar connected to the hostel and it was pretty cool! We got a pretty good price for the beds and overall a nice little hostel for a weekend. Linens are included, but towels and breakfast are not.
I also think it’s important to point out that Stockholm is a pretty expensive city. I currently live in Scandinavia, which has higher prices, but Stockholm honestly surprised me. Don’t let this make you not visit, just be prepared.
