Don't worry too much about the prices as the Swedish Krone is quite low at the moment. I've never been myself but people who go say to visit the Vasa ship thing. Probably very touristy but should be interesting to see.

Yeah it’s not too different from London at all. Booze is more expensive though in general

I’d recommend Sodermalm for nice bars and cafes and restaurants - around Nytorget or Mariatorget. Götgatan has some amazing Scandinavian style shops.

Also around where you are staying is nice and plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.

I’d recommend Skansen and Fotografisk too.

Recently spent a few days in Stockholm. It’s a clean, relaxed city, and very walkable. I stayed close to the Zinkendamm ice hockey ground and felt at home. Drop coffee, nitty gritty, our legacy all close by, plus a few other boutiques so a good choice for Fukwits. Bio Rio is an old cinema in the neighbourhood with a great Japanese/Peruvian bistro and good wine options. Otherwise I went to-

Tygge & sessil- strong wine list and great service.
Savant- smaller selection but more choice btg and more relaxed, also have good coffee
Centan- small plates and a great wine list
The only other place I would have wanted to go was Babette but just didn’t have time.

There’s a state monopoly on alcohol and PK Huset is the best bet for low-intervention choices but speak to the staff as it’s quite well disguised

Only had time for one museum and picked the national museum- quite boring tbh. If there’s an equivalent to the John Soane collection I didn’t find it listed.

Swedish people have strong International School energy but everybody was super nice and accommodating. The stock camp-Scandi style is prominent here.

I got back last week from a long weekend and had a great time. Checked out quite a few of the recommendations from on here and a few other places of my own. Would definitely like to come back in the summer time to see the vibe. Well worth a visit as a long weekend IMO.

good luck Laughing out loud

it's crazy here regarding apartments, finding one before May is going to be tough

if you know anyone here check if you can live with them as plan B if you can't find one in time while you search

Ok! We have the feelers out with a couple of places but agree it’s a fast moving market. Seems renting is done on a personal level for example not any agents involved.but if anyone hears of anything going please drop me a pm Cool

I found through relatives that most rent in the city and own a summer house. They have a flat in Hornstull on Sodermalm, which is a great area if you are needing inspiration.
