Questions about travelling in Sweden

Postby hhiusa » Sun Dec 04, 2016 11:09 pm

If money was not an issue, where in Sweden would you choose to vacation? What activities would you do? I would prefer to avoid places that tourists flock to. I do not like big cities.

Om pengar inte var ett problem, vär i Sverige skulle du välja att gå? Vilka verksamhet kulle du göra? Jag tycker inte om platser med flera turister. Jag tycker inte om stora städer.

Do you have anymore details about Stockholm? Like, why Stockholm? I want to do a short term rental for like a month. Good restaurants? Places to avoid?

Bones wrote:Stockholm is likely your best bet unless you have anything specific in mind, like let's say skiing, or you know someone in the country who can show you around. It has the highest concentration of Swedish landmasrks and museums, like for example the Royal palace, Vasa museum and the old town. It's also the largest city in Scandinavia and therefore has good shopping opportunities and a plenty of restaurants to choose from. The Stureplan area has some expensive ones. You can move around the center of the city easily by metro and on foot. The easily accessible areas are safe and the city is beatiful during summer. You can travel between Stockholm and Helsinki by cruise ship. But then again, it might be too touristy for you and there might not be enough stuff to do for a whole month.


Thank you. Most people might need to be entertained the entire time that they are there, but I am fine to just meet people and maybe relax in a nice house and soak the atmosphere. I mentioned one month because I would be willing to rent a house for a month. Short term rentals require at least a month for anything I would consider staying in. I do not like airbnb or bed and breakfast joints. I found a few nice places that are unfurnished that I like. One on the water in Stora Essingen, one in Nörrmalm facing a park (questionable) and another in lidingö.

Why does everyone seemingly want to be in the center of Stockholm?

I have heard that lidingö is a very nice area. What do you think? I also saw the show Solsidan. Is that supposed to be like the Swedish version of The Hamptons?
