Summer in Stockholm

With summer in full swing there's still plenty of weeks left to swim and if there's one place in the world where swimming is adored it's the beautiful capital city of Stockholm in Sweden.

Stockholm is a city surrounded by water and it spreads over 14 islands. Stockholm is one of the few cities in the world where taking a dip in the clear waters smack in the middle of the city is a normal thing to do. In the winter the Swedes swim in the many indoor swimming halls but in the summer they swim outdoors.

If you find yourself in Stockholm for a day or two here are a few outdoor swimming spots that will put a smile on your face; Ekhagenbadet, Fredhallsbadet, Hagaparken, Kanaanbadet, Langholmsbadet, Sicklasjon, and Smedsuddsbadet.
