STOCKHOLM IN SUMMER
Those longing to head North in summertime should give Stockholm a try. The city with its many surrounding islands exudes pure bliss. During the summer months, Scandinvian life takes place outdoors, as many cafes, restaurants and bars offer cozy seating outside. The highlight of the summer takes place on June 25th, when all of Sweden celebrates Midsommar (the most important day after Christmas), a cheerful fest to honor the longest day of the year. Visiting Stockholm and the surrounding area in the summer, you will find yourself being rewarded with beautiful colors, amazing light and long days.
