Stockholm, Sweden - Apple Maps

If you are looking for a fresh and exciting honeymoon destination, and somewhere a little different, gay Stockholm may just be the place. Set across fourteen islands, the city of Stockholm is truly a treasure trove of arts, music, culture and good food. The city offers both a chance to relax and explore a vibrant nightlife, and ingrained appreciation for music, set on a picturesque backdrop.

If your journey starts with a flight into Arlanda Airport, it is connected to the city by a 20 minute, fast and comfortable train journey on the Arlanda Express or a 40 minute taxi ride, both making for an easy transfer.

Throughout the summer are a number of LGBT-specific events, as well as those more widely marketed. The Music and Arts Festival, for example, offers an impressive lineup of both established and up and coming acts. This year’s festival featured Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and a carnival-style setup with popcorn vendors and a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
