If you are planning a trip to Sweden, odds are good you'll spend some time in the country's capital city, Stockholm.
While it would be easy to say you should spend three or four days in this gorgeous city, the immediate question that should follow is “where do I stay?”. But picking where to stay in Stockholm is tricky because the city is sprawled out over not one, not two, but 14 islands.
In this instance, our first instinct was to stay in Old Town Stockholm on Stadsholmen Island. Historic buildings, a central location, and museums we wanted to visit made this island sound quite appealing. But when it comes to getting the most out of the city, especially when it comes to having accessibility to delicious coffee shops, bars, and restaurants, you may have reason to pause.
Other islands and neighborhoods in Stockholm may be worthy spots to consider instead!
