THE REGIONS - Stockholm and vicinity

Stockholm wouldn’t be the same without its vast archipelago, one of the largest in the world with upwards of 35,000 islands, islets and skerries, covering 1,700 square kilometres.

Grinda Wärdshus, in Stockholm archipelago

The archipelago has over 10,000 residents and 50,000 holiday homes. A voyage out to the archipelago in your own boat or by ferry is a must for both locals and visitors. There are a large number of restaurants and inns, and other food destinations such as fish smokehouses, distilleries, village stores, sausage makers and bakeries.

The city itself is a melting pot of cuisine from all over the world – with a bursting restaurant scene covering everything from innovative street food and gastropub-style cuisine to restaurants of international acclaim. Many demonstrate their very own take on Nordic cuisine. Two of the chefs leading the way are Björn Frantzén and Mathias Dahlgren. However, young, ambitious chefs are continuously challenging for the leadership on the city’s culinary stage, and new restaurants and other food venues continue to open their doors to the avid restaurant-goers of Stockholm.
