STOCKHOLM

Natural beauty meets contemporary urban glamor in the so-called Capital of Scandinavia

curated by

ALLESSANDRO CATENACCI, OWNER OF NOBIS

The center of Nordic design, culture and cuisine, the so-called Capital of Scandinavia is as rich with natural beauty as it is with contemporary urban glamor. The owner of some of Stockholm's best restaurants, nightspots and hotels -- including the inimitably grand Nobis Hotel on the beautiful, bustling Norrmalmstorg Square -- Alessandro Catenacci is the ideal guide to take us through some of his favorite spots.

    OPERAKÄLLAREN

    Operakällaren’s name dates back to 1787 when the restaurant was situated in the cellar under Gustav III’s opera house. Now situated in the Royal Opera House and part of the Nobis Group, its high-class cuisine and historic environment give it an unrivaled feeling of warmth. Don't forget to have a drink at Operakällaren’s waterfront cocktail bar, which offers sweeping views of the Royal Castle and a new interior by designers Claesson, Koivisto and Rune.
