Stockholm has a world-leading design scene, picture-book palaces, and an enviable berth in the waters of an idyllic archipelago – it’s an easy city to fall for. Discover everything the city has to offer in this all-encompassing travel guide.
Stockholm has a world-leading design scene, picture-book palaces, and an enviable berth in the waters of an idyllic archipelago – so to say that it’s an easy city to fall for sounds a little trite. But it’s more than looks that grace this place (even if a dedicated Beauty Council does oversee the architectural developments). There’s also a crop of new restaurants that has brought variety to a once one-dimensional food scene. In the hotel industry too, recent openings have upstaged the staid options, while the shops teem with Swedish-made goods.
The Monocle Travel Series reveals beloved places in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds, and choice places to eat, be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
