Charming areas in Stockholm

If you ask the locals, they will all have their own idea of what is Stockholm's most charming area. Many of them would however likely suggest Södermalm, which is considered a trendy area with many independent restaurants and cafes.

Gamla Stan (Old Town) is another charming place, a tiny but beautiful historic area with cobbled streets and centuries' old buildings.
Or stroll around in Vasastan if you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere with a variety of restaurants, both Asian fusion and traditional Swedish pubs.

Love this app! As a foodie myself, living in NYC with endless options - ”where should we eat/go for drinks today?” is a constant question. l always trust recommendations from friends more than anything and with Nova Circle it’s so easy to find new places that are genuinely good, recommended by all the people I trust.
