To be honest, my strongest association with Sweden is IKEA and I’d be pretty satisfied if someone told me that going IKEA was the only thing to do in any Swedish city. But it’s obviously not the only thing to do Stockholm, so I’ve found us five things other than IKEA to experience there. Stockholm has a lovely blend of historical, cultural, and natural attractions to offer and is definitely worth a visit.
