Stockholm Pride Festival, every year in Stockolm

Stockholm is often regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful and sophisticated cities but don’t get fooled by the look of it. Underneath the surface lies a bustling and inclusive LGBT scene. The highlight of the year is the Stockholm Pride Festival, when the city turns into one big party. Thousands of people migrate to Stockholm to take part in the festivities.

In general, Stockholm is a hotspot for entertainment and it is all very gay-friendly. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs – you will find them everywhere. Not to forget, Stockholm has a rich cultural heritage to explore as well as a contemporary side in terms of design and architecture. Also, there are plenty of things to do just a few miles outside of the city center, in the magnificent 30,000-island Stockholm archipelago. Stockholm definitely has something for everyone and welcomes everyone, no matter who you are!
