Does anyone else attend a new city and think you’ve ticked everything off the list and seen all that you wanted to see but then get home and see shit loads of photos of things you wish you had done? No, just me? Well here’s a list of things I want to do the next time I visit Stockholm.

#1 SKOGSKYRKOGARDEN

#8 CHERRY BLOSSOMS
Kungstradgarden is a large park in the centre of Stockholm, which is home to hundreds of blossom trees. If you head there around April to June time, you will see them in full bloom. When I visited Stockholm, I visited Kungstradgarden when the trees weren’t in bloom and they still looked beautiful.

#9 NATIONAL PARKS
Tyresta National Park is the closest national park to Stockholm, but Sweden has many others for you to explore. During your adventure, if you go at the right time of the year, you can also catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.

  1. Well, I would say that Stockholm is so big, that you cannot possibly see everything if you are a visitor. But now you have a good list of things to do, if you decide to go there next time.

  7. I guess this is why we always need to plan a return trip. Even with a lot of research beforehand, we always miss great spots, or just run out of time. I would certainly like to take the rooftop tour or a ghost walk. And what fun to be able to change the color of the Telefonplan tower.
