I started off with Stockholm or as they call it "The Venice of the North". Almost a week in Stockholm, spending the whole of Christmas week there, I saw some incredible places and experienced some of the best Swedish traditions. Not to miss, the city that was lonely on Christmas eve (no body on the streets and most of the stores were shut), caught up to a running life soon after. Right from fancy museums to watching the gloomy sky change colors over all of Stockholm, I had some off the track experiences or what I'd rather call as "The Artists Galore". Think of it! If you just end up visiting the main streets of the city or the headlined museums or touristy spots what new have you done? It would feel like 'just another European city' with nothing different to mark. I am among the ones to learn of the history of a place and watch out for the rarer experiences. After all travel is about indulging in newer experiences! Delve a little deeper and you'll find each city has a soul of its own.
