From the saffron-coloured buildings and cobblestone-covered streets, to the sleek modern bars and trendy restaurants, Stockholm is a city of history, style and impeccable design. Stockholm Pocket Precincts takes you beyond the city's glittering surface - it's your guide to all the best places to eat, drink, shop and explore, from underground cafes and basement dance clubs to tiny vintage boutiques tucked inside historic buildings. Also included is a selection of 'field trips' to encourage you to explore outside the city, including nearby islands like Bj rk (home to the viking city of Birka), as well as the popular university city of Uppsala. Along the way, you'll discover the city's character, its sense of humor, habits and principles. After all, fashion is fleeting, but fika (the daily coffee break) is forever.
