Sweden, Stockholm

First time to Sweden

I will be working in Sweden for a couple months, based out of Stockholm. It will be my first time in the country and I really want to explore.  What are the best towns for a younger crowd?

The areas just south of old town are great places to hang out for 35 and under set. Visit the area around Skånegatan and even around Hornstull. The two are about 7-8 km apart but easy to get to by subway or bus.

Hi Melissa,

The most lively and student towns in Sweden are UppsalaLundGöteborgUmea, and of course Stockholm.

If you are staying only two months in Stockholm, to me, the easiest and unmissable weekends around are:

- Uppsala: a very beautiful town, and the oldest university in Scandinavia

- Stockholm itself: there's so much to visit in the city and around during the weekends.

Helsinki and Tallinn: 2 days, 3 nights, one day in each city, sleep and travel by night in the ferries. If you're on a budget, it's the best option. You can also take the whole weekend for each capital, it's definitely worth it :)

- A bit further but promising lots of memories: a partying weekend with friends in Goteborg, and to visit the old city.

If you have 4-5 days, I can recommend the following:

- Do a road trip in the south and visit KalmarKarlskronaYstad and Lund.

- Head up north to Lappland, it is as beautiful in the winter as in the summer.

PS: I can't advise much on the best places in the centre of Sweden, but there must be some wonderful weekend to do there as well.

Enjoy :)

Gothenburg is very young but Stockholm is the best town ever, I was student in Halmstad a very small city but thanks to all the erasmus crowd it was incredible. it is not easy to create a strong friendship with Swedes in a couple of months but that doesn't matter, there are enough cool people, international or Swede in Stockholm. I would advice a trip to Kiruna (by train or plane) and plan a trip to the ice hotel on a snowmobile (1000Sek approx) and a trip with sled dogs to (hope) to see northern lights. eventually cross through Lofoten Islands which is apparently super beautiful (when the weather is good).

Enjoy the Swedish mentality :)
