30 Snowy Photos That Will Inspire You to Travel to Stockholm in the Winter

For many people, summer is the obvious time to travel, especially to Sweden where winter can be harsh. Also harsh are prices for airfare and lodging during the summer months. 

Last winter, I found a $155 flight from California to Stockholm, Sweden — I booked the ticket without thinking twice. After the spontaneous purchase, I started questioning my decision to visit Stockholm in the dead of winter. 

Long story short, Stockholm can be cold — yes — but the city is absolutely magical when covered in fresh snow. Come prepared with a good jacket, gloves and thermals, and you'll quickly forget it's below freezing. Here are 30 photos that show why Stockholm is a true winter wonderland.
