The Best Cities in Sweden for a Weekend Trip
Sweden is a welcoming, exciting, and safe place to schedule a weekend break, and its cities offer a diverse range of attractions. Here are four of the country's best urban destinations.
Home to a university that's been dishing out degrees since the 15th century, Uppsala is full of history. From its fabulous cathedral to the Viking artefacts in the Gustavianum Museum, there's a lot to learn here. The parks, cycle-friendly streets, and student nightlife make Uppsala a must-see.
Sweden's stylish modern design capital, Gothenburg is buzzing with creativity. Find out about the city's furniture design and architectural heritage at the Röhsska Museum, chill out at Liseberg Amusement Park, or enjoy a science lesson at the Universeum before retiring to a cosy pub in Haga.
Sweden's capital is a superb weekend destination, and there's something here for everyone. Photography and art lovers will adore Stockholm thanks to galleries such as Fotografiska, while foodies can dive into one of Europe's greatest culinary scenes at the wealth of bakficka (backstreet restaurants).
Malmo is a vision of the future, with carbon-neutral buildings wherever you look. But the old is represented here as well, with a cornucopia of treasures at the vintage shops on Möllebångsgatan. And, as with Stockholm, Malmo excels in the food department, with great New Nordic eateries and stellar Middle Eastern restaurants.
