Watching a moving production of Jenufa with an exceptional cast, sipping champagne in the gold foyer at intermission (which you can preorder online), and entering the gorgeous chambers and the opera theater itself in this wonderfully ornate setting. It was an experience to cherish!

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
