Stockholm: The Best Urban Summer Destination

21st August 2018 Destinations
Hallå Turtles,
Live2Leave is taking you to the loveliest urban summer destination: Stockholm.
Not only is the weather perfect at this time of year with long and sunny days, but the city’s atmosphere is also pure bliss. The majority of the Swedes head to the islands for the warmer months so the streets of Stockholm are pretty empty and you can easily find tables on all the beautiful terraces without having to book.
The energy you will find there is hardly comparable to anywhere else, so hurry up Turtles, if you have a free weekend soon, you now know where to go!
