Stockholm guide in winter. How to spend cold days?
Stockholm is a very beautiful city where you can find interesting places and entertainment any time of the year. In this blog post, you will find several ideas on how to spend time in Stockholm in the winter with benefit and interest.
The Bibliotekstan in Ostermalm is known as an exclusive shopping area selling the best in Swedish and international fashion.

The city centre and the Norrmalm district are recommended for those who are looking for Swedish consumer goods.
The city centre and the Norrmalm district is a great place for those who are interested in shopping.

On January 18-21, the Stockholm Expo Center will again host the largest Scandinavian design fair Formex, bringing together the best interior designers, industrial designers, importers, manufacturers and buyers.

This is a great place to find new ideas and knowledge in the field of design and a great platform for finding new business contacts among admirers of the Scandinavian style.
Since the beginning of 2016, access to exhibitions in most national museums in Sweden is FREE. These are must-visit museums in my opinion:
  • Millesgarden
  • Fotografiska
  • Liljevalchs Konsthall
  • Carl Eldhs Ateljemuseum
  • Moderna Museet
  • ArkDes
Fika is a Swedish tradition of taking a coffee break during the day. 
In Swedish, the word Fika is both a noun, meaning the break itself and a verb, describing its implementation.

Such a break can be arranged by the Swedes every two hours, and it lasts no more than 15 minutes. This is a must-do thing during winter in Stockholm. Here are my favourite cafes for Fika:
  • Two Fat Ladies
  • Fabrique Cafe
  • Greasy Spoon
  • Omayma
  • Le Ostermalm
  • Banacado
  • Johan & Nystrom
  • Tribowl Cafe
  • Dirty Vegan
  • A La Lo
  • Brod & Salt
  • Pascal Bakery & Cafe
One of the best things to do both in summer and winter is to enjoy the panorama of Stockholm. stockholm is a hilly city, that is why it has many points with beautiful views, both outdoors and indoors.

View points
  • Skinnarviksberget
  • Fotografiska Restaurant
  • Vårbergstoppen Viewing Platform
  • Tak Restaurant
  • Moderna Museet Restaurant
In order to feel like Swedes and Stockholmers and feel local life - it is better not to hide all day at home or in cafes, but to set time for walks in nature. 

This is how Scandinavians spend their weekends - close to nature, no matter how cold the weather, snow or wind. here are some beautiful places with nature, rocks and water.
