Searching the hashtag #stockholm on Instagram, you’ll easily find great locations for taking those out-of-the-ordinary photos during your vacation. If you want to explore more than that, check out this list of hidden places in Stockholm. 

Svartensgatan and Katarina Kyrkobacke
Södermalm in Stockholm is known as the bohemian area of Stockholm. It’s also a mecca for vintage stores, cool bars, and hipsters in the many. On Svartensgatan and Katarina Kyrkobacke you’ll find neither of that. While Södermalm usually is bustling with people, the streets surrounding Svartensgatan and Katarina Kyrkobacke are often quiet. Cobblestoned streets, amazing view over the inlet of Stockholm and old houses are to be expected.

Sven Vintappares Torg
That Gamla stan (the Old Town) of Stockholm is a dream for great photos is not unknown. If you want to capture other stuff than Stortorget, Mårten Trotzigs Gränd, and the Royal Palace, our number one tip is to get lost in the streets. If you want one tip, we’ll let you in on a secret: Sven Vintappares Torg is a lovely little square, squeezed in between Västerlånggatan and Stora Nygatan. It’s the smallest square of Gamla stan.

Långa Gatan on Djurgården
Sure, the island of Djurgården is on its own a fantastic place to go loose with your camera, but there is one street that’ll take you that extra mile. Långa Gatan, translating to Long Street, is only a 150 meters long, but it’s the longest street in Djurgårdsstaden. Here you’ll find houses from the 1700s, most gorgeous is perhaps the old bakery.
