Stockholm: A romantic getaway

Stockholm: A romantic getaway

Are you considering whether Stockholm is a romantic destination?

Whether you celebrate a wedding anniversary or your honeymoon, Stockholm has a wide range of activities to create memorable experiences.

Stockholm is known as the Venice of the North, and we are here to share some getaway ideas that will allow you to enjoy the best romantic getaway.


About Stockholm

With a total of 14 islands connected by bridges, walking doesn’t allow you to explore Stockholm fully.  You can better enjoy the city by taking a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour, admiring most of the city’s main areas, getting information, and enjoying some marvelous vistas. Then you can decide where you want to go spend some extra time exploring.

There is a myriad of activities and tours in Stockholm to choose from. Here are some of them.

The City Hall

If there is an iconic building in Stockholm, it is the city Hall, inaugurated in June 1923. A 106-meter tower composed of eight million bricks, representing the Nordic National Romantic styles.

City Hall has many beautiful areas, including the Blue Hall, the venue for the Nobel Banquet.

You can go to the top of the tower to take in a breathtaking bird’s eye view over Stockholm.

Gamla Stan

A stroll along the charming Gamla Stan of Stockholm is mandatory if you are looking for a romantic spot. As you walk along the winding streets, you will be able to travel back in time, as Stockholm’s story dates back to medieval times, when it was an important medieval center in Europe.

Now, restaurants, shops, and cafés stand were there once stood a trading city, with shops and warehouses.


One of the places we recommend is Skansen, the oldest open-air museum in the world and zoo.
Visiting this open-air museum, you will be able to learn about the history of Sweden and see the way people used to live in the past in Scandinavia.
Skansen was founded by visionary teacher and academic Artur Hazelius in 1891 to give future generations a glimpse into life in Sweden before the industrial age.
As you stroll through its 30 hectares, you can travel back in time and visit all the different recreations of rural scenes and life in Sweden, including craftsmen in traditional dress who are demonstrating their skills. In addition, there is an open-air zoo,  and you may even get a close encounter with birds there.



Vasa Museum

One of the best places to visit in Stockholm is the Vasa Museum, showcasing the only 17th century preserved ship in the world,  a 64-gun warship that went down on its first voyage in 1628. While you visit the museum, you will find several exhibitions with information and videos. This is the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

The Vasa ship was brought to the surface in 1961 and slowly restored. It remained deep until 1961, when it was lifted to the surface and slowly and painstakingly restored.

We also visited the Music museum, where we learned hands-on about music.

If you are celebrating a wedding anniversary, are recently married, or are looking for a weekend getaway, Stockholm is a destination you will enjoy.

Stockholm is much more than a cultural, modern Scandinavian capital city and where many international and well-known brands, such as Ericsson, IKEA, H & M, and Absolut Vodka started.
