There are clear discernable signs that summer has come to Stockholm. There’s the dancing around the maypole on Midsummer’s day, aroma of charcoal and barbecues as long as there is enough sun, cold and brief drizzles, the sun that rises at 2am and sets at 11pm, the emptiness of Stockholm because most locals have taken long holidays out of the city. And its quite clear that the Swedes love their summer.
A good number of middle class Swedes have their own summer homes outside of where they work such as in Trosa.
And there are those with houses in Sigtuna.
We visited Sigtuna again in the summer for a day of quiet and to take in the sights and sounds of Sigtuna in the Summer.
