Välkommen till Stockholm!
Stockholm is a city that sprawls over a series of islands and dates back to the viking age. You will be located in
Norrmalm which is a commercial hub. The island to the west is
Kungsholmen which is a more chill residential area that features the
City Hall and this is where the Nobel banquet is held annually. During the summer months it has live music and parties on the water.
Directly to the south of the hotel is the
Old Town (Gamla Stan), this is where all the pretty buildings and winding cobbled-stone streets are. It has a high density of tourist attractions such as
The Royal Palace and
the Nobel Prize Museum.
To the south of the Old Town is
Södermalm, this is the vibey part of the city (think Williamsburg/Bushwick or Shoreditch/Hackney), brimming with creative energy, it has a high density of bars and pubs.
The area in the east is known as
Östermalm which is home to
the Swedish History Museum if you want to see viking relics in the flesh, this part of town is where the you can party with Stockholm playboy types or visit high fashion boutiques.
