I am about to move to Stockholm for half a year and want to get to know the city. I have been looking for good guides to the city, not like the ones they sell at barnes&noble. I know that wallpaper did a issue dedicated to Stockholm a bit back, but I can't find a copy of it. Are there any other guides out there that are worth looking at? I would like to find a fashion guide to the city. Anything on the internet worth looking at?

sparrow --

i moved to stockholm about five years ago and i've had a flat here before that for years. the wallpaper guide is pretty out of date by now and anything noteworthy and original has either closed down or become passé. besides, it's a very small town with little to offer in terms of variety in shopping, eating, bar, clubbing, work, housing...

the one though i could recommend is the time out guide, edited by people who live here with some street knowledge. as for fashion you'll find that you won't need a guide to get by - you can cover everything in two days. as for restaurants, the most used online resource is alltomstockholm.se -- there have been several attempts to copy/steal the concept of b-guided in barcelona or superfuture (even down to the design) but none of them have made it with any noteworthy reach or with acceptable content.

i wrote a few lines with recommendations and i wouldn't mind elaborating on the subject. plus, if you're moving here, you'll find that in semi-socialist sweden, things don't work the way you're used to....
