"During the summer 'holiday'..." Stockholm Local Custom Tip by SheDragon

Stockholm Local Customs: 171 reviews and 163 photos

During the summer 'holiday' season, stores and attractions close very early. Unlike in the States, where stores stay open longer to take advantage of people not being at work, in Sweden, the stores close earlier, since no one will work. This is something to keep in mind when you want to buy something or do something late on a Sunday afternoon in July...whatever it is you want to do is most likely closed. Do your sightseeing and shopping early in the day, and enjoy the views that cost nothing after dinner.
