Winters in Stockholm are harsh. Temperatures in the teens and inches of snow are standard. If you're willing to endure the season, you'll be rewarded with alarmingly low travel rates.  Britta Kasholm-Tengve Getty Images

Next to Christmas, Midsummer is the biggest holiday in Sweden. For this summer solstice celebration, friends and family gather in the countryside to enjoy the weather over a big Swedish feast. Carolina Romare/Folio Getty Images

Though Sweden is primarily known for its meatballs, pickled herring is as traditional as it gets. The fish is normally served with a side of potatoes, boiled egg, sour cream, dill or onions. kolotuschenko Getty Images

Cinnamon buns are to Swedes what biscotti are to Italians. You can find them in any bakery and are strongly encouraged as a side with your coffee or tea.  Daniel Hogberg Getty Images

One of the more unique museums Stockholm has to offer is one dedicated entirely to the band ABBA. You can find this museum, along with the Vasa Museum, on Djurgården. Courtesy of the ABBA Museum
