Sweden's forward-thinking capital is an ideal destination for anyone looking for a break. Known as the Venice of the North it’s composed of 14 islands, connected by 57 bridges, situated on Lake Mälaren. After taking flights to Stockholm, make a beeline for the Gamla Stan (Old Town) where you can soak up the 750-year history of the city in one of its earliest settlement areas. Its ancient architecture still stands today. You’ll be walking through small, winding streets lined with shops full of handicrafts and antiques, passing art galleries and cafés. Also in the Gamla Stan is the famous Royal Palace, where you can watch the spectacular Changing of the Guard. The Stockholm Cathedral is also located in this humble part of town. Getting around is an experience in itself. The subway system is ultra-modern. Taking a boat on the waterways presents a quaint and relaxing way of getting around.
After you take cheap Stockholm flights unleash your inner child with a day trip to the Grona Lund Amusement Park. Feeling a little more grown up? Relax with a walk around Djurgården Island. Stockholm is a green and clean city and you can clear your head after your Stockholm flight in the acres and acres of green space. On the subject of nightlife, the Swedish know how to party, so bring your dancing shoes on your direct flights to Stockholm, polished and ready. Like all modern cities there is a huge choice on offer for clubbers. Couples in search of somewhere quiet and classy are catered for too. Highly recommended is Södermalm, a chilled out, less-expensive alternative to Stureplan, which is where most of the high-end clubs and bars are located. Nightlife centres on Slussen, Medborgarplatsen and trendy SoFo. Book a trip now and lose yourself in Sweden’s foremost city.
