Offering nightlife like no other city on this planet, Stockholm is one city that literally ‘never sleeps’. With partying going on 24×7, 365 days a year, Stockholm has very little competition in Europe when it comes to ravishing Stockholm street style parties and frolic feasts. Stockholm is studded with ground-breaking pubs and restaurants, cafés and meeting places, most of which are demarked according to the spending power and the age of the customers frequenting these places.
Kungsholmen, Vasastan and Sodermalm are the neighborhoods in Stockholm that are known for ever-changing night life preferences. Sodermalm particularly is known for more youthful and out-of-the-way clubbing and partying with a whole range of clubs and cafes to choose from.
If luxury clubs, offering heavy partying till 5 in the morning is what you are looking for, then the Berzelii Park, City Center, Kungsträdgården and Stureplan are the districts you need to be at. They offer nightclubs for the creatures of the night- more serious clubbers and heavy drinkers. Nightclubs and cafes like the LaRoy, Plaza, Solidaritet and Riche are just few of the high-profile party places that are housed in these regions and are inhabited by some of the most well-to do high-profile and hardcore party people of Europe. Stockholm has a nightlife par the best in the world and is definitely one of most revered clubbing destinations of Europe.
If you are done with all the clubbing and want a sneak peak into the history and culture of Stockholm; be rest assured that there is plenty in store for you. The city, built on an archipelago of 14 islands, offers a unique maritime landscape combined with some beautiful palaces and churches. The first and foremost in the list of such historical places is the Royal Palace, which is Northern Europe’s largest. The Normalm and Sodermalm districts boast of churches, alleys, cafes and residential complexes that belong to the era of the 17th century AD. Complementing the numerous pre-historic parks are many lakes to the East, West and South directions, making them peninsulas in themselves.
Among the historic places, The Old Town or the Gamla Stan is the oldest part of the city. This part is home to the Royal Palace, Skattkammaren (The Royal Treasury) and the Livrustkammaren (The Royal Armory). The ‘changing of the guards’ ceremony also takes place in the outer courtyard of the Royal Palace. This district offers stunning views and is home to the noble museum and the House of Nobility, two of the most beautiful places in the whole of Sweden.
