What do I need to about staying in Stockholm?

Our Stockholm apartments often provide welcome packs which should give you a rundown of what to expect from the area and your accommodation. Here are a few tip about the area:

Transport

Like most Scandinavian countries, Sweden has a very developed and up to date transport system. The city’s bus service runs from the city centre all the way out to the suburbs and further, running from early till late, meaning that if you’ve had a meeting that has over run a little, the bus system has got you covered. Stockholm is also home to plenty of trams and trains which help you commute either within the city or out to other areas of Sweden. There are of course taxis too, which are around 24/7 and able to take you to any location for a more expensive charge.

Weather

With temperatures only reaching above 20 degrees in the summer months, Stockholm has a relatively cold climate. The amount of rainfall is also very consistent, with the amount of rainfall ranging from six days to ten days throughout the year. With incredibly short amounts of daylight in the winter, this is compensated by the long hours in the summer which can be from 3am till 10pm.

Cuisine

One of the most popular dishes in Sweden is a hot and cold buffet style dish called smorgasbord; this is popular amongst most countries in Scandinavia, yet originated in Sweden. Other national dishes include: Swedish meatballs, herring and a multitude of fish meals. Sweden is also famed for a wide array of bakery products, which can be found in the bakeries lining the streets of Stockholm. 

Language

With Swedish being the main language spoken in Stockholm, what you may not know is that a large proportion of the population also speak English fluently. This is down to not many people speaking Swedish and as English is known internationally; this is the perfect second language to have.

What else is Stockholm known for?

Ericsson Globe

The Ericsson Globe is one of the key venues for sports in Sweden. It is where the national hockey team play as well as one of the best venues in the city for music events. This is also the world’s largest spherical building and is a brilliant venue to entertain business partners or clients whilst staying in one of our serviced apartments in Stockholm, Sweden.

Beautiful streets

Stockholm is home to some of Europe’s most gorgeous streets. With some of our Stockholm apartments being in close proximity to these streets, why not venture out to see the 90 cm wide Marten Trotzigs Street Grand. The narrow and steep street take some climbing, but is one of the most popular things to visit in Stockholm.
