This work from foreign correspondent Arnold (Vienna Times) is directed toward travelers who don’t want to miss the experience of seeing the more “stylish” parts of the city of Stockholm, Sweden. A suggested itinerary, for example, highlights the Hornstull market, a favorite of trendsetters. A warning alerts visitors that restaurants featuring high-quality foods come at a price while some nightclub bouncers check the outfits of would-be revelers. The author warns that many of Stockholm’s museums, shops, and restaurants are cashless. The guide features spare text beside outstanding glossy photos—taken by Arnold—of business interiors and exteriors, food, clothing, and art. Maps are clear and easy to read. The “Year in Stockholm” and “Recurring Events,” as well as language essentials are given some consideration. But the most detailed information appears in the “Directory of Places,” which features the names, addresses, and short descriptions of establishments noted earlier in the book.
VERDICT Appropriate for visitors interested in Stockholm’s shopping, food, and drink history.
