How we do it in Stockholm
The capital of cool in Scandinavia, Stockholm with its long summer nights, stylish shops and one of the biggest European pride festivals, makes for a great European destination.
Sweden legalised gay marriage back in 2009 and Stockholm has long been the centre of Scandinavia’s gay history. Today, the city’s gay scene is pretty much integrated throughout. Södermalm serves as the hipster hotspot for Stockholm, home to a mix of unofficial gay bars and hangouts. Visit during Stockholm Pride and you’ll find rainbow pride flags adorning every public bus, 7-11 convenience store and almost all shops.
