Perhaps the most characteristically Swedish tradition of all is the Midsummer celebration, celebrated on June 24, the longest day of the year when the sky never goes dark.
Most Stockholmers leave for the archipelago or the countryside during the weekend, but those who stay behind have options too.
Skansen, the world’s oldest open-air museum, holds a grand Midsummers celebration with dancing and games to Swedish folk music around the maypole, decorated with flowers and leaves. Many participants wear traditional folk costumes and wreaths of flowers in their hair. Midsummer is celebrated outdoors in similar fashion at locations throughout Sweden. A traditional midsummer meal includes herring, fresh potatoes, beer and snaps. As this is a major national holiday many places in Stockholm are closed on Midsummer Eve and -Day (June 24-25).
