About Me
My name is Lovisa, and I am a student. I love living in Stockholm because of all the water and nature. It's a pretty big city with a pulse, but it's never far to jump into nature. Since Stockholm is built on different islands, there's water everywhere. The water is more/less
You have to go to
Skinnarviksberget. It's a great spot for a view over whole the city. If you come in the summer, make sure you bring some food to spend the day here and enjoy the sunset.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Go to Aifur, a Viking restaurant in Old town. There are quite many tourists there, but I've been there many times as a local and the atmosphere is really cool. The menu is inspired by the Vikings and includes dishes such as salmon, deer, moose, mussels, etc--it's all really tasty. Eating there is a whole experience and something you will remember for a long time afterwards. I've brought several visitors there, and they all liked it :) Don't forget to try the mead!
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
There are so many nice places in Stockholm that I really enjoy. My favorite, though, must be the archipelago., We have about 30,000 islands in Stockholm and many Swedes have their summer houses there. Some of the islands are reachable by bus, others by ferry and for a lot of them you need your own boat. Take a ferry to Grinda, Norra Stavsudda, Sandhamn or Möja. Walk around the island, visit the local stores, restaurants and bakeries. Bring your own tent, rent a canoe and spend a night on some of the islands.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
Rolfs Kök is very good and a popular place among locals. They also serve pretty traditional food.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
Stockholm is great for walking around and exploring. Here are a couple places you shouldn't miss, though:

1. The Old Town (Gamla Stan)
2. The Vasamusset
3. Millesgården
4. Kungliga Slottet

When you want to have a mid-afternoon break, I would also recommend finding a nice café and ordering a cinnamon bun or waffles with cloudberry jam.

Also, if you won't have enough time to travel through the archipelago, there are islands really close to visit, such as Fjäderholmarna.
My extra insider tip for you is
Try to connect with someone local--they can show you so much more. If you're lucky, they'll take you to places that are a bit difficult to reach or find as a tourist. Some of the museums in Stockholm are free. If you are interested in museums check which ones are for free. If you buy a card for the public transportation you can aslo use it at some boats. If you wanna buy alcohol in Sweden, that's only possible at Systembolaget. Opening hours are 10 am to 7 pm in the weekdays and 10 am to 3 pm in Saturdays. Sundays closed.
