Gay Stockholm: Your Guide to Stockholm Gay Pride
Royal Palaces, Nobel Prize ceremonies, thousands of islands, mesmerizing architecture, and the ABBA Museum. Stockholm is a gorgeous waterfront city that literally has it all. When we first visited Sweden’s capital last year, we were immediately taken by its undeniable charm. As the country’s largest city with a population creeping above 2 million, this Scandinavian metropolis is a must visit when touring Europe. Gamla Stan, the city’s Old Town, is a beautiful place to stroll around, grab a bite to eat, and admire the colorfully detailed buildings splashing up along the city’s never ending coastline.
Six Gay Pride Events To Attend in Europe for Summer 2013
Last summer we got a little caught up in Europe’s gay pride events attending Munich Pride, Madrid Pride and Amsterdam Pride. With so many great festivals celebrated in so many unique cultures, how could we not? This summer is looking to be no different as we begin planning some trips! Here’s some of the Gay Pride events we plan to attend as well as a comprehensive list of all the Gay pride events around Europe this summer 2013.
Munich Gay Pride Weekend
We had our first couchsurfing stay with an excellent host in Munich during Christopher Street Day (aka Gay Pride). He was also hosting a couple others that weekend and took the time to graciously show us around the city. Traveling can be such a different and unique experience when you have the privilege of staying with a local and enjoying their company. Aside from some rainfall, it was a fantastic weekend. We found the pride parade to be surprisingly better than Madrid’s even though Munich’s Gay Pride event is much smaller.
Here are some photos of the weekend.
The Christopher Street Day Festival in Munich was a blast and we got to eat our first German Bratwurst, while washing it down with a few beers!
