Gay Stockholm; Lesbian Stockholm; Video of Stockholm

Today I would like to share a video of Stockholm made by Passport TV. Enjoy!
 
“Passport TV explores Sweden’s most exciting city and finds a wonderland of art, culture, and unique attractions. Come with us as we discover what makes Stockholm one of Europe’s most fascinating and romantic getaways.”

When I woke up this morning I discovered that the whole city was covered in snow. Yaaay!
It’s actually still snowing so I didn’t bring out my camera. Here’s a picture from last year to show you how amazing Stockholm looks like under the spell of Father Christmas. He may force us to wear more clothes then desired but he definitely has a sense of style. Stockholm can absolutely pull off white!

Stockholm is one of the world’s most striking capitals and a perfect destination for a romantic weekend. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval city centres, the city oozes romance.

Out Traveler looks at 101 romantic hotspots to hit up this winter. Some of the places you’ll find in Stockholm!

“When Pride is a country’s largest festival, you know its priorities are straight. Romance in snow-studded grandeur or plan an island-hopping spring fling.”

From old-world opulence to minimalist makeovers, Stockholm sleeps every scene. These hotels are all members of IGLTA and Stockholm Gay & Lesbian Network.

Art deco meets pop art at the chic boutique Berns Hotel, a self-proclaimed “Designer Hotel for people tired of designer hotels”. Past guests Marlene Dietrich and Diana Ross would certainly agree.

For those who like to dream of splendors of a bygone era, Hotel Stureplan’s combination of two 19th buildings brings traditional Swedish craftmanship and intimate class to a neighborhood renowned for shopping and nightlife. The hotel’s champagne bar, Per Lei, is a must for lovers of the bubbly stuff.

Jetsetters that need no dreaming flock to the Grand Hôtel, a superbly elegant mainstay opposite the Royal Palace that oozes with heritage and tradition. A stocked new gym and full-service spa enhance its already extravagant offerings.

At the just-renovated Sheraton Hotel Stockholm, five-star service and a popular happy hour mere steps from the train station draw a choice crowd to the central business district. From individually decorated rooms to meals in a exquisite conservatory, Hotel Hellsten is a gem prized for its impeccable good taste, buffed daily with a sheen of cozy charm.

Rightly described as “Stockholm’s Art Hotel No.1”, the Clarion Hotel Stockholm showcases a stellar collection of works in a living gallery of light and space. Whether you’re in town for business or indulging in a romantic weekend, save time for a drink and the fantastic skyline view at its trendy upstairs bar.

Commanding views, commanding breakfasts (voted “Best of” so many times it’s not allowed to run anymore) and cleverly designed rooms with swirling marble bathrooms make Hilton Stockholm Slussen a unique option for business and leisure.

And at gay-managed Hotel Skeppsholmen, a slick, serene renovation turns two 17th-century naval barracks into an amenity-laden island of culture and calm, literally. Ensconced in nature next to the Modern Art and Architecture Museums, its central waterfront location is a captivating choice for a discerning crowd. Condé Nast Traveler agrees: it’s the only Scandinavian hotel listed on its 2010 Hot List!

When The Woodland Cemetery, Skogskyrkogården was founded at the beginning of the 1900s, the aim was to create something special, something original – a cemetery blending nature and architecture into a seamless whole.

Around All Saints’ Day, thousands of people come to The Woodland Cemetary (Skogskyrkogården). The national holiday is celebrated with candles. Lots and lots of candles.
