Hi, I am planning a trip to Stockholm in the end of May.
Can anyone please comment on the weather. Many sources say the average temperature around that time is 50 F. Is it usually cold at that time? Since we plan to do a lot of walking, we are concerned that it might be too cold to walk around all day.
Also, can anyone please recommend, what is the best location to stay in order to be close to the "center" as well as to get a good taste of Stockholm? (We are in our mid-twenties, meaning the "center" for us does not mean "museums," but rather shopping, fashion, bars, meeting other young people).
Also, how much time do you need to visit Stockholm? We have a week. Is that too long for just Stockholm. Can anyone recommend what to see in and around Stockholm in a week?
Last question, is it safe to walk around at night/evening? Which areas should we avoid? How late do cabs run, or is there any difficulty in getting a cab late at night? (We got burned in Milan when we couldn't get a cab and almost walked to the hotel).
Any other recommendations will be highly appreciated because useful, in-depth information on Stockholm, especially from people who really know, is so sparse on the internet.
