Tips and tricks for visiting Stockholm

If you happen to visit Stockholm during the mid-summer holidays, you will find the city quiet as most locals head to the countryside to celebrate the break with family and friends. If you want to be part of the festivities, you should definitely visit Skansen, which hosts several traditional events such as binding birch wreaths, raising the leafy maypole, several games, and folk music and dance. If your itinerary allows time for the “non-touristy things to do, stroll along the water on Strandvägen, the most glamorous street in the city, visit the ultimate hipster Hornstull Marknad flea market, wander about at the Rosendals Tradgard,a plant nursery cum café in the heart of Djurgarden or discover a hidden part of Stockholm at the old paint factory, Fargfabriken, which is now a cultural feast of art, architecture, parties and club nights. Avoid staying at Gamla Stan where room rates and restaurant prices tend to be more than what they would be elsewhere in the city.
