The capital of Sweden, Stockholm lies among a swirling network of fjords that feed out from the Baltic Sea. It is not only the capital city, but also Sweden's centre of arts and culture. It hosted the most famous Games in the world back in 1912 and has been a cosmopolitan city ever since. It is home to the Swedish royal family, and their residences, Stockholm Palace and Drottningholm Palace, are popular sights for visitors to see. The latter is also a World Heritage Site. Stockholm has many theatres and music venues, as well as sports stadiums aplenty, especially catering to winter sports and other cold weather activities. Buy or sell Stockholm event tickets all year round on StubHub to experience the very best of Scandinavian entertainment.
Festivals and theatre in Stockholm
An annual fixture on the Stockholm cultural calendar and an event well worth booking tickets for is the Stockholm Music and Arts Festival. This showcase attracts top performers from around the globe, as well as providing a great platform for Scandinavian artists. It's an excellent way of getting to know the local heroes and experience their contributions to Swedish culture. The city has also played host to many long-running theatre productions that have become perennial favourites. Check out performances like Ariodante Stockholm as a prime example of the kind of entertainment that is so regularly available here. You can always buy Stockholm event tickets like these when you're on StubHub. On the sporting side of things, Stockholm is an ice hockey mecca, and has no less than three premier league football teams: Hammarby IF, AIK and Djurgårdens IF.
Stockholm is the place to see the superstars
When you're buying Stockholm event tickets, look out for venues like Cirkus. It's a gorgeous building that has capacity over 1,500 theatregoers or music fans. It also has a delicious restaurant that has become a fixture on the city's gastronomic map. For events on a much grander scale, book tickets when your favourite star is performing at Stockholms Stadion. The likes of Rammstein, Kiss and The Rolling Stones have played there, making it the place to go when you're seeking out true rock royalty. It's also the major sports stadium in the city, playing host to many a local derby over the years. A visit on match day has always been one of the highlights of a Swedish trip.
Other Swedish destinations
While Stockholm is Sweden's major tourist destination, there are smaller, more out of the way cities that are well worth finding your way to once you've sampled the capital's delights. Venture north to Uppsala, or a short way west to the small city of Västerås. Then complete your visit to Sweden by travelling to its other coast to have a look around Gothenberg.
