Rich with history, culture and spectacular architecture, there’s really no other place in the world quite like Stockholm.
Approaching Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, one will admire the 24.000 islands archipelago of the Swedish coast. Stockholm itself is located on 14 islands. You will walk in Gamla Stan – the old town of Stockholm, see the changing of the Guard at the Royal Palace, visit the famous City Hall where the Nobel prize winners are praised every December, see the unique Vasa museum, which displays the only almost fully intact 17th century warship that sank in 1628, enjoy visiting and listening music in ABBA museum, fine arts exhibitions in the National Gallery and in Millesgarden. Those who love nature and folklore will enjoy Skansen, the first open-air museum in the world. Outside Stockholm you will visit Sigtuna with its medieval churches, ruins, rune stones, Uppsala and its famous University founded in 1477. Back to Stockholm to finish the tour by a fascinating cruise under the bridges of the Swedish capital.
Just like ketchup and mustard, lingonberry jam is widely used to accompany a variety of dishes, from meatballs and pancakes to porridge and black pudding . But despite its sweetness, it is rarely used on bread. You might swap meatballs for mini sausages or pick cured salmon rather than smoked, but your smorgasbord wouldn’t be complete without pickled herring (sill). Many Swedes grow up eating pea soup and pancakes every Thursday. This tradition has been upheld by the Swedish Armed Forces since World War II. Cinnamon Bun Day is celebrated on 4 October. Buns filled with cream and almond paste known as semlor are eaten on Shrove Tuesday or ‘Fat Tuesday’ as the Swedes call it – the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Waffles are consumed on 25 March, and creamy sponge cakes decorated with chocolate or marzipan silhouettes of King Gustav II Adolf.
