Hidden Color in Stockholm

For the third stop on our European adventures, we flew from Copenhagen to Stockholm! Watch the video below for all of the highlights and read on for where to stay, eat and explore!

We spent a total of three nights and  two days in the city, and stayed at the Haymarket by Scandic - another gorgeous property in the Scandic Hotel Family.

As soon as we walked up to the hotel, I knew we were going to love it. It's PINK after all ....! When you get inside, you immediately notice gorgeous details. We're talking velvet walls, Art Deco decor, beautiful tile work, monkey lamps and a "gym garden." We actually wanted to work out. It's worth a trip to the city just to stay at this property alone...!

After we checked in, we headed to Old Town and made a stop at Chokladkoppen, Home of the WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE. It was so delicious, we went back for more the next day.

For dinner we had the best pizza I've ever eaten (outside of Italy) at Giro, which was just a short walk from the hotel. 

And we also discovered the cutest swedish candy store, Caramella, and food market, both in the square right outside of the Haymarket. The food market is located near the movie theater and is two levels. It had a variety of seafood and traditional swedish food stalls. I snagged a shrimp salad and it was divine!

Don't miss the charming streets of Old Towne. We loved wandering through the squares and alleyways. And for a colorful treat, head to the metro...! Each stop is adorned with artwork. The rainbow and the pastel tile work were our favorites.
