Drottninggatan is like any other main shopping street in a city: lots of stores - lots of people. There is something for everyone. There are small fun stores and you also have the big well known brands from around the world. It gets crowded through the day. Nice street though. The street also leads to Gamla Stan if you're in...

This is the place to go if you want to go shopping. This is a long pedestrian-only street with most of the shops you would find in New York, London, Madrid or Paris. Prices tend to be slightly higher than in Paris or Madrid, but most Stockholm shops offer tax free shopping services if you spend above a certain amount.... More

Drottninggatan is pretty much the city centre of Stockholm. There's nothing to special about it. There are some cool shops, but the rest is quite like many other downtown cities, full of shops, brand name shops, and varies food and restaurant outlets as you would expect. It's worth a look if you're wanting to shop, but you don't get to... More

Located in Norrmalm area, which is basically downtown, you will not miss it. It stars right in front of the parliament buildings and goes all the way to the Observatory Park. It may seem like a lot over the map, but once you spend more than a couple of hours in Stockholm you realize that it is not that big... More

This is not the Sweden I once knew! Today was my last day in Stockholm and I bought gums in this store. I wanted a kg to surprise my daughters, who love the Swedish gums, the "Stora Raton" and pacifiers. When the seller weighed, instead of an approximate a kg, the scale indicated 1,5kg. I thought it would not be... More

With the very expensive prices in Stockholm and Sweden as a whole, we thought of just walking around and enjoying the place. Shopping apart from some small souvenirs was not a priority. But, luckily for us, it was the annual sale-time in June , glorious weather and with discounts all around we ended up shopping quite a bit. It is... More

Lots of tourists, very busy street, very crowded, lots of shops, cafes and mostly lots of H&M !! Loved it, and went shopping more than once, beware of the price difference between shops. The duty free at the airport could not compete with the prices there, so I advise you to buy all you need from there but only after... More

My first contact with this street was when we went to dinner at Drottninghof restaurant. It is a nice street, very clean with many restaurants and expensive shops. Usually when I travel I am not particularly interested in shopping, so maybe this is the reason I wasn't impressed with this street.

You'll find from here what you would normally find from a busy tourist street: a bit overpriced cafes, lots of retail chains (the typical Swedish H&M has at least three stores on this street) and most of all tourists. If you want to learn Finnish, this is the street to do it in Stockholm. :)
