Stockholm is known to pick up quickly on international influences. With a broad ethnic spectrum, the latest trends within fashion, culture, art, and music quickly take root. Restaurants with cuisine from every corner of the world jostle with cafés, pubs and night clubs, galleries and museums, large shopping centres and unique boutiques.
