    Stockholm - old and modern

    Stockholm is maybe sometimes maybe trying to be more than it is, but if you are ready to find those hidden spots and forget about the weather, which very likely will be freezing cold or just giving you an annoyingly drizzling rain, then you will find a very special capital. Just walking around the old town you can find yourself dreaming of the middle ages, squeezing between small alleys, looking up at colorful houses and down at crooked streets.

    Insider Tip:In every corner you can find a piece of history, whether it's a magnificent ship that sunk a few hundred years ago or buildings built in a time when impressing the world down to every single penny was essential . Stockholm is green, new, old and fascinating.

    Stockholm was nothing short of amazing!! It has to be one of my favorite places in Europe. It is right on the water and everything is so clean and pretty. If you go anywhere in Europe, go to Stockholm.

    Insider Tip:Be warned that Sweden is an expensive place. Everything from accommodation to food is expensive. However, I felt it was worth it.

    I loved Stockholm and I love swedish girls! : ). They are the most beautiful girls I ever seen in my life. And you can see them everywhere. Sweden is a very organized place. It impressed me a lot the fact that EVERYBODY in that country speaks English. I've never seen that anywhere else. People are very kind and helpful.

    Insider Tip:Arriving in Stockholm by ferry is really nice. You can also go to Tallin or Helsink from Stockholm... I recommend walking around to know the best spots of the city, like Gamalastan and the royal palace. You can also take the free walking tour. There is also lots of interesting museums to go. At night I recommend going to the Traedgarten club!

    Awesome city!

    Everything is very expensive but as exchange students we had food in our backpacks so we didn't spent a lot of money on foods. The people were very helpful everytime we were lost and asked anyone for directions or something... I had a great time there!
