    I know what you're thinking: isn't Stockholm that freezing, gloomy city up in the north that nobody cares about? Friends, let me tell you the truth - Stockholm is an absolute treasure trove, bursting with food, and stunning architecture. Sure, it might not be perpetually sunny, but don't let that small downside deter you. Instead, let it be your weapon to stun your friends with your ridiculously unique and amazing travel stories. So, with that said, allow me to introduce you to Stockholm:

    Here's a little secret though - if you time your visit for Stockholm's summer months (late May to August), you might just get to experience the city in all of its sun-soaked glory. Can you say "Sunny Swedish Summer Beer gardens"? Yeah, you heard right.
