After globe-trotting research and fierce debate, the travel experts at Lonely Planet have chosen their favourite cities for 2012.
In 5th place we found the Swedish capital, Stockholm. This is what Lonely Planet said:
“This is as seductive a capital city as can be imagined, cosy yet cosmopolitan, willfully alternative and effortlessly picturesque. With its trendy design shops and bohemian bars, the island of Södermalm is one of the coolest kids on the block, while the stately parks of Djurgården make it the best island for an evening stroll. Admittedly Stockholm has never been a cheap date. But even if Stockholm leaves you with a lighter wallet, you’ll inevitably still leave it with a heavy heart.”
Stockholm is only 2,5 hour flight from London. Plan your Scandinavian city break via the official tourist guide visitstockholm.com
