Visit Sweden’s capital, Stockholm | Private jet charter

Sweden’s capital Stockholm, located on the east of the country, is made up of 14 islands. In addition to its stunning landscapes, Stockholm offers visitors a charming medieval Old Town, relaxing parks and gardens, historical palaces, museums and a diverse nightlife and cultural scene.

Stockholm Old Town

Hugely popular with tourists, Stockholm’s Old Town, or Gamla stan as it is known, has a fabulously preserved medieval heart, with countless restaurants, cafes, bars and unique shops either side of cobblestone streets. Pedestrian-friendly, Gamla stan has some of the best attractions in Stockholm, including Stockholm Cathedral, the Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum.

Enjoy a cinnamon bun and coffee in Stockholm’s oldest square, Stortorget, and visit the narrowest alley in the Old Town – Mårten Trotzigs Gränd – at only 90cm wide.

Swedish Museum of Natural History and Cosmonova

The Swedish Museum of Natural History is highly recommended just a short walk from the subway. With nine permanent exhibitions and free entry, visitors will learn about nature, the creation of the universe, animals, plants and more. Information is in Swedish and English, and there’s a dinosaur exhibit and an IMAX theatre in the Cosmonova’s 8,000 square foot dome.

The Royal Palace

Located in Stockholm’s Old Town, the impressive Swedish Royal Palace has more than 600 rooms, with 5 museums – including the Royal Armoury Museum with armour and costumes on display. Built in Italianate Baroque style, the reception rooms are dazzling, one of which contains Queen Kristina’s silver throne.

The changing of the guard ceremony is held three times a week outside of summer. Watch the blue-and-white uniformed guards march to the Palace, accompanied by a full military band before they change the guard in the Palace courtyard.

Ferry to Djurgården Island

Join the Swedish love of the great outdoors with a trip to Djurgården island’s peaceful waters and hike the trails among pristine woodland. Visitors can also sate their love of culture at the open-air Skansen museum which features 500 years of Swedish farming culture. A huge 17th-century salvaged ship is the main feature at the Vasa Museum, while Abba fans can get their fix at ABBA: The Museum with its fab memorabilia.
