During my recent stay in Stockholm, every weekends I would go out for afternoon walk so as to get natural light. The Stockholm Canals was one of such destinations.

It was cold but bright day to walk through the old town and across the canal bridges. The view and atmosphere was both relaxing and beautiful.

For 170sek (around 17€ / £15) per person, you'll go on a 45 minutes tour around Gamla stan and Djurgarden ! Free audio guides are available in every language possible, and are really interesting. I'd definitely recommend it. Be sure to check beforehand the availability of the tour. For example, I was there from the 13th to the 17th of... More

Everyone should visit them and check out the beauty of this city (&... More

If it summer and the weather is nice. A ride on a canoe/kayak or a boat during an evening in Stockholm is probably one of the best place to be (Stockholm archipelago is even better). This if you like nature and city combined. You can more or less travel around the whole of the city (you have to pass a... More
