The Stockholm Districts
Officially Stockholm consists of 14 islands, it’s the beginning of an archipelago of a total 30 000 islands! A few of these islands are a little bit more exposed than others, and the ones we would recommend you to start to explore are the following four areas:
Vasastan, Östermalm & Norrmalm is where you’ll find the city center, tons of shopping, museums, activities of all preferences and choices and of course many of the clubs and popular restaurants. These are actually three different areas, but they share the same island.
Södermalm and Sofo are south of the city center and this island will give you plenty of great hipster-like restaurants, bars and also clubs in the summer. Gamla Stan is our Old Town and here you can experience the old architecture, the Royal Castle or jump on a boat for a visit to Djurgården where the city theme park is.
Kungsholmen is not the first island you might visit if you only stay for a couple of days but have a few surprises. Walk along the waterfront at Norr Mälarstrand, visit The City Hall or few drinks at Mälarpaviljongen. Also, it’s our home and we love it here.
