Be notified when a new unfamiliar destination is added.

Why

The Kungsholmen district is a very beautiful residential part of Stockholm that gets you away from the areas most visited by tourist. You get to see how the locals live and still get to visit the major city attractions. Of course all of Stockholm is quite picturesque, but this area is even more so. Wait until you visit, you will see what I mean.
