If you fancy a trip to the theatre, try the Royal Dramatic Theatre at Nybroplan or visit some of the smaller theatres on Söder. The Opera at Gustav Adolfs Torv is also worth a visit, not only for its performances but also for its beautiful architecture. The Globe regularly hosts major sporting events, concerts and shows.
If shopping is your thing, the area around Hötorget and Stureplan offers plenty of options, as does Götgatan on Söder. Don't miss a visit to the NK department store on Hamngatan.
From Stureplan you can walk down Birger Jarlsgatan, where you'll find Orrefors, Kosta Boda glass design and exclusive fashion boutiques. At the bottom of the street you'll find the beautiful national stage, Dramaten. Nybrokajen is just ahead, and here you will find all the ferries that can take you out into the archipelago.
If you want a bit more greenery, a walk by Kungliga Djurgården is recommended, or perhaps a stroll along Norr Mälarstrand. Långholmen is also a lovely oasis in the middle of the city. In summer, there are several places to swim in the city, both at Långholmen, Södermalm and Kungsholmen.
The Vasa Museum (near Skansen) is a great experience. Here you can learn about the people and the time around 1628, when the warship sank. Near the Vasa Museum is Junibacken, the Astrid Lindgren Museum in Stockholm - and it's not just for children.
Located on a small island in the city, Gamla Stan is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the Nordic countries, with a lively environment, cosy restaurants and cafés, and exciting rummage shops with old weapons and orders - and with the castle on top.
