August is definitely the month for crawfish (crayfish) parties all over Sweden, and it’s also a great opportunity to hang with friends, sing indecipherable songs, and down some tasty adult beverages. Many restaurants and cruises offer...

This group of around 24,000 islands and islets spreads east from the city into the Baltic Sea, with regular ferry service to the bigger, more populous ones. Set aside at least a day or two to explore them if you can: Ask the information office in...

One of Stockholm’s many islands, Kungliga Djurgården (Royal Game Park) is where many of the city’s historical museums, palaces, gardens, and lush green parks are located. Grab a rental bike from Stockholm City Bikes or from the waterfront stand...

Fly into Kalmar from Stockholm (less than an hour), pick up a rental car, and drive over to this island, a major vacation spot for Swedes due to its temperate climate. You can also catch the ferry that runs between Oskarshamn and Byxelkrok. You...

Located a mere 45 minutes from Stockholm via ferry, the Royal Domain of Drottningholm provides an opportunity to visit one of the finest examples of 18th-century northern European architecture and garden design. The ensemble of palace, gardens,...

Galärvarvsvägen 14, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
According to Swedish Naval Articles in place when the Vasa set sail, “He who carries a light in the ship and carelessly starts a fire causing the ship to burn, shall be thrown into the selfsame fire.” One is reminded by the strict Naval Articles...

Rosendalsvägen 38, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
It really doesn’t get more eco-friendly and organic than dining on freshly baked bread and pastries at Rosendals Trädgård Kafé and Bageri. Their breads are baked with biodynamic flour from the Saltå Kvarn mill in nearby Järna, and their dishes are...

Djurgårdsslätten 49-51, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
Skansen is the world’s oldest open-air museum. It was founded in 1891 to preserve and spotlight Swedish culture—from traditional artisans at work and period Nordic lifestyles to barns with farm animals and a zoo with Nordic wildlife such as...
Save Place
107 70 Stockholm, Sweden
The Royal Palace located in the center of Stockholm and is a must visit. The grand structure is impressive just to walk by but when you enter into the palace it is amazing to see how royalty lived with the grand rooms, intricate art and furniture,...
Save Place
Øresundsmotorvejen, Denmark
Usually I take a train across the Øresund Bridge, an engineering marvel that connects Malmo, Sweden, to Copenhagen, Denmark. Unfortunately, the train travels below the vehicle deck, which means you can’t actually see the bridge. And this is a...
Save Place
271 78 Löderup, Sweden
Ales Stenar is a rock formation (in the shape of a ship, roughly) that sits atop a ridge on the coast of southern Sweden. There have been many comparisons to Stonehenge but there are no other connections other than they both have standing stones...
Save Place
387 22 Borgholm, Sweden
Travel across the six-kilometer-long Öland Bridge (one of the longest in Scandinavia) to the island of Öland and find Sweden’s most impressive castle ruins. After 800 years of history, Borgholm Castle was razed by a fire in 1806; but today, its...
Save Place
271 77 Sandhammaren, Sweden
Sandhammeren is arguably southern Sweden's most beautiful beach. Pack a picnic and a hat and enjoy the fine white sand beach contrasted by the bluest waters. It was relatively quiet when we visited. I'd recommend accessing the beach through the...
Save Place
Blasieholmsgatan 4A, 111 48 Stockholm, Sweden
I had the pleasure of visiting Stockholm twice this summer for business. On both trips, I could not get enough of this restaurant, B.A.R., near the Grand Hotel. Despite its location in the middle of tourist central, this is a gem that is quite...

Dalarna County, Sweden
Often touted as “Sweden in miniature”, travel back to historical Sweden and trace its cultural roots in this centrally located region of the country surrounded by lakes and forests. It is also home to the world’s biggest cross-country ski race,...

Malmö, Sweden
Planning to attend a wedding in Sweden, I contemplated my transportation options and scheduling obligations before deciding to rent a car and road trip from Copenhagen to Gothenberg, and then on to Stockholm. The drive was beautiful; green grass,...

Sweden’s second-largest city, with nearly half a million residents, Gothenburg pulses with energy. Indeed, it has all the cosmopolitan trappings you’d desire, including Michelin-starred restaurants, a homegrown music scene, and gracious public...

Strandgatan 14, 621 56 Visby, Sweden
Every year for a week in August, Visby returns to 1361 in the Middle Ages as its cobblestoned streets are filled with jesters, beggars, peasants, and other characters dressed up in medieval attire in what is known as “Medeltidsveckan” (Medieval...
