Join The Passport Out as we explore the Swedish capital through the eyes of Stockholm-based lifestyle Instagrammer, Matleena (@matleenas)!
Stockholm gives you the best of both worlds: I love that you can feel the hustle and bustle of a big city, but can just as easily go to the numerous parks to appreciate nature’s beauty.
My absolute favourite thing to do in Stockholm is to enjoy a cup of coffee in one of the many beautiful cafés here. You have to try a traditional Swedish cinnamon bun (kanelbulle) or, perhaps, a piece of princess cake (prinsesstårta). You will not be disappointed!
Stockholm is a city made up of islets. I love to climb on the hills of the southern island Södermalm to watch the sunset and enjoy the view.
Stockholm’s Old Town is one of my favourite parts of the city with all the colourful little streets, cute cafés, and unique boutiques. The Old Town has so much to offer – eventhough it may seem touristy and crowded on the main streets, the smaller streets are often quiet and have an enchanting atmosphere.
The architecture of Stockholm is a magnificent sight to behold. Everyday life is just as exciting. Here, enjoying the moment comes naturally!
