If it is picnics or walks you are after, most of Sweden pays host to this activity but try Haga Park for its relaxing spa like environment. Fishing and canoeing is also popular in one of the many pristine lakes, so if this is your focus make sure to dress warmly between November and April as these are very cold months. Better for ice skaters and purveyors of beautiful scenery as most of Stockholm is covered in a cool white blanket of snow.
As well as these tempting outdoor activities, Sweden also offers a rich night life. Whether you are culturally inclined or just simply want to party the night away.
Tuck into Sweden’s substantial cuisine which consists mostly of Pork, Beef and crayfish, covered in rich gravy. Alongside this the swedes prefer a tangy or sour taste so longoberry jam is used with these dishes. Breads of all shapes and sizes are served, with big helpings of potatoes. This helps to ward off the winter chills and set you up for the day. But you can also order a good Pizza in Sweden too.
Kulturhuset should also form part of your Sweden visit. A rich diverse mix of art and culture, its meaning aptly translates to culture house. Here you can mingle with culture vultures alike or in summer enjoy the metro areas which are turned into clubbing areas at night. During the day there are theaters and art exhibitions whilst at night you can dance to the beat while savoring the fresh clean air.
