Sweden’s capital of Stockholm is built on a group of 14 islands, which is interesting enough on its own. But there are many more reasons to love one of Europe’s oldest cities, including the quaint Old Town, museums, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.
When you think of Sweden, IKEA might be the first thing that comes to mind, but there is much more to this diverse nation than its famous furniture brand. There are vibrant, lively cities like Stockholm and Malmo to explore, but Sweden is also home to picture-perfect landscapes filled with sparking lakes, green fields and lush forests.
When to go: June-August for the best temperatures which allows the best chance to experience the incredible variety on offer.
