Overview 

Stockholm is the largest city in Scandinavia. It is also one of the most multi-cultural and pleasant capitals in Western Europe. The old town is charming, the pubs are buzzing and the locals are exceptionally friendly. It is the upgraded version of Oslo…prettier, cheaper, and with better nightlife. Yes, it’s expensive, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.

The Girls

Composite image of average Swedish girl.

Appearance: Over-rated. Swedish girls are marketed as the best looking girls in the world. However, the truth is, ethnic Swedes are only slightly above average. The talent is higher than Norway and most central and western European counties, but Slavic women are hotter. Like Norway, you will see many cute faces, light eyes and plenty of blondes, but their bodies aren’t great.  Their average height is 165cm (5 ft 5 in)—one inch shorter than their counterparts in Norway. Average weight is 64.7 kilos (142.3 lbs). Wide hips and a bit of extra padding around the thighs are mid-section are the norm. According to the WHO, approximately 50% are considered ‘overweight’— ranked 90 of of a 114 country study. As for the blonde thing, the majority of Swedish girls are in fact light brunettes. Roughly 20% are blonde. (Finland has more.) Girls dress quite hipsterish and not very feminine. Tattoos and facial piercing are common. All that said, the top tier of Swedish girls are fucking gorgeous. Each day you’re likely to see a handful of girls that will blow you away.

Demographics: There are slightly more women than men.  Approximately 26% of Stockholm’s residents are of an immigrant or non-Swedish background. Apart from a sizeable Finnish population, the largest of these groups are as follows: Iraqi (125,499), Polish (72,865), Former Yugoslav (70,050), Iranians (63,828) and Bosnian (59,290).  Other large immigrant groups are people from Somalia, Turkey and Thailand.

That bird Tiger Woods married.

Attitudes: Sweden is considered the most feminist country on earth. They also have the highest divorce rate in the world. Women are not shamed for sleeping around and have no hang ups with one night stands. A large proportion of them are on the pill. I really can’t imagine more liberal chicks. They’re are also super friendly and surprisingly passive. Racism is negligible here and I’ve heard many reports of non-Caucasian guys with game will doing very well here.

Gaming Strategy: First things first, nearly everybody speaks fluent English. The girls are pretty receptive, too. For day game, I recommend you take a stroll on Queen Street, the main pedestrian street. Night game is the best option, however. It’s pretty easy to pick up if you do a couple of approaches. A lot of girls roll in mixed groups here, so try bring a wing. Swedish guys, your competition, look good, but are pretty beta compared to other European countries so don’t worry about them. Your biggest difficulty will be getting the girls away from their clique. Be bold. Control the frame and escalate fast. Swedish girls show very little resistance once attracted. The winning move here is the ‘come to back to mine for drinks’ play. By 3AM, they will take what they can get.

The Dirt

AccommodationI got a private room at Interhostel: a self-proclaimed ‘feminist’ hostel. They have night security but just walk past like you’re both staying there. They won’t say anything. However, I recommend you stay further south nearer the good nightlife in either Gamia Stan (old town) or Sodermalm. For apartments, check out: AirBnb, Stockholm Budget, Apartments-in-Stockholm, Red Apple and Cocoon Stockholm.

Getting High:

Where to buy Marijuana: There is a reggae bar called “Sderkllaren” it is very near the Substation Medborgarplatsen. There are always a lot of smokers in that bar, just ask one of the rastas if they have some Mary Jane or if they know anyone that have it.

Prices: One gram of hash costs €12. Five grams costs €45-55 and ten grams between €89-100. Weed (better): €19 for one gram, and €64-69 for five grams.

The Nightlife 

The two main areas for nightlife in Stockholm are Stureplan (T-östermalmstorg) and Medborgarplatsen/Södermalm (T-Medborgarplatsen). Stureplan is the more posh place and very guestlist-y (not my style). Old Town also has a few cool spots. I’m sure there are a lot of cool other places we didn’t check out. In reality, you’d need at least a month to get under the skin of the city.

The following recommendations are all near each other and good craic.

Aifur Viking bar

This bar is fucking awesome and should be a mandatory first stop for a night out in Stockholm. Ye auld outfits, grogs of ale, animal skins, candle light, and traditional music all await you in this underground viking tavern. This is as near to a time machines as it’s comes. It’s not a pick-up place, but the atmosphere here is spectacular. Website here.

Patricia

Patricia Party Boat

After the Viking bar, why not hit up a party boat? Three floors, live music and nightclub. It’s not cheap and the girls is a littler older (30ish), but hell, you’re partying a boat! It’s an interesting venue to check out. I quite liked it.

Kvarnen

Cool two story venue with a large beer hall and basement club.  This was the only place that had a decent crowd in it on a Thursday. Cheap beer, young girls and good atmosphere.  Website here.

Medusa Rock Bar

As many readers may know, I have a soft spot for rock bars. They generally attract a laid back crowd with plenty of sexy loose wenches. Medusa is no different. This maze-like three story rock bar is a good place to drop into. The place to pick up is the front bar. You’ll get a lot of hottie traffic if you pick a the stool near the stairs. Website here.

My Stockholm Experience

I was there three nights, Thursday to Sunday. Thursday was very sedated with a serious lack of options. I kissed two not-so-hot girls (from Kvarnen), then went home alone as the girl I stuck with revealed she had a boyfriend at the end of the night, cheating bitch. Friday night was way better. I kissed two girls again (both from a random student party), but this time the standard was very high indeed. I bounced the cuter of the two (Swedish-Caribbean mixed) to Patricia and then took her home to get my Swedish flag. Saturday night I got laid as well. I pulled  her in Medusa. She was good six inches taller than me with ‘Welcome’ tattooed above her vagina. Good times.

    Yes, I was finally waiting for Stockholm!!! Nice job man and I am kind of disappointed in the girls looks because people always speak highly of the average Swedish girl. Anyways nice article. Greetings from NYC!

  2. Odysseus November 20, 2012 at 4:52 am #

    wow!

    The city guides are improving even more!

    Good job, keep it going!

    And I agree… Swedes are not only overated… I also hate their attitude… they seem to think they are queens… when even Finland has way hotter women.

    BTW, my first comment on NN, but have been following the blog for one year now 🙂

  3. Deb Auchery November 20, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    Nice data.

    Sort of place I would go for a few days at the most due to the costs. I will game Swedes in Asia this winter where it’s cheaper and they are at their sluttiest. Swedish girls are renowned for fucking on holiday.

    BTW Bosnia was a part of Former Yugoslavia 😉

  4. fogal November 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

  6. macncheese November 20, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    • Naughty Nomad November 21, 2012 at 2:26 am #

      @Mac: Many Asian and African chicks are easier to bed, but I wouldn’t describe them as more liberal…on average.

  9. fogal November 21, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    was lookin at a world map and thought, one of the most overlooked and possibly forgotton flags is greenland(its way up there an isolated)…consider going there any time?

  10. JJ Roberts November 22, 2012 at 2:14 am #

    I captured my Swedish flag a long time ago in London (or was it Paris, I hooked up with Swedish girls in both places) but my general impression of Swedish women is not high.

    If you find an exception to the rule then great but mostly they are cold, closed, no sense of humour and no personality.

  11. LC November 22, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    Stockholm has a somewhat divided night life. The south side of the city is where you meet the tattooed hipster chicks. The north side (Stureplan) is more classy.

    My favorite bar/club is still Hotellet on Linnégatan. Place starts out as a restaurant and bar early in the evening, but as the night progresses they turn up the music, move away some tables and it becomes more of a night club. Show up early for text book approach venue place.

    Generally though… yes, Swedish chicks are overrated. Bland and shallow.

  12. Tren November 26, 2012 at 7:42 am #

    Your guide can break many Argentinian hearts haha
    They hallucinate with Swedish girls because people say
    they are beautiful and mostly “blonde”, the latter it’s what cause
    a lot of excitement in their minds.

    Just as you said, I also think Slavic girls are hotter and Swedish girls don’t have good bodies. Now I have a clue why Swedish men aren’t shocked for living in the country with the most beautiful girls in the world, just as ads promote it, most of the time they don’t care about it. BTW, I prefer cute girls (if they’re cutter? Yeah, that would be wonderful) so I think I could have a nice time going around there, if it is how you said. I heard that before, they usually are cold and very formal.

    • Derek May 28, 2014 at 3:41 pm #

      Most swedish girls are not blonde by norther euro standards but the majority of swedish people would be considered blonde in countries like Argentina, italy, spain, brazil or even france. The definition of what is blonde is completly different from country to county, even medium brown is considered blonde in some countries, because they are mostly used to black hairs. I think denmark(specially jutland)is definitely blonder than Sweden, not sure about finland. I think sweden is the least blonde scandinavian country, along with some areas of western /northern norway.

  13. Swedish Girls Dating March 26, 2013 at 11:40 pm #

    Swedish girls for dating? Are their women really good for marriage? I heard divorce rates are high in Sweden.

    I hope the girls look like the ones I saw on Instagram when I visit this summer!

    Swedish girls are overrated. Just average looking, boring personality etc. They are not the most liberal in the world like some think. It’s easier to get laid in southeast asian countries and eastern europe countris (if your white and come from a wealthy country) for example. 98 % of the population is atheists so that’s why it’s pretty easy to get laid here. It’s not a dream place for asian and indias guy, but the people here are not racists like in many eastern europe countries, (where the best looking girls is). You will have a harder time to get laid than a average sweden guy or someone from a mediterranean country.

  15. Bruk April 18, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    Probably easier to get sex in great britain too, bad looking girls tho and in central europe, better looking girls than in Sweden also.

  16. Lina Thuvander July 27, 2013 at 4:40 am #

    Be careful because many of these sexy girls in clubs such as Cafe Opera are escorts since its legal to sell sex in Sweden.

    • hush January 9, 2014 at 2:07 pm #

      Lina, it sure is illegal to sell sex in Sweden. Escorts are paid to entertain guys with no self-esteem. Guys pay them 2-4k for their company. That’s all. Men om snubbarna vill ligga så är det tjejerna som bestämmer om det.

      The sum of it all is that prostitution is illegal

      Over and out 🙂

  17. Alex August 1, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    Being sexist, do you think Slavic girls are the hottest because they are the easiest for you to get? Swedes weren’t feeling you?

    • Naughty Nomad August 3, 2013 at 2:40 am #

      Ha! Quite the opposite. Swedes are the easiest chicks on the planet. I was in Stockholm three nights and took home two different girls. Swede are cute, but they’re bodies are no match for Slavs.

  18. Marco April 29, 2015 at 4:10 am #

    I have been last week in Prague for Holiday with my friends, and we went to K5 Relax that is in Korunní 5 Praha 2-Nové Mesto .What’s great about this Club is that the girls don’t pressure you,they are not aloud to talk to you till you choose the girl ,you the customer are in full control, not like in other places where the girls almost force you to buy their time! Every table has a computer touch screen with all the info about the girls that are on that night. You can find more info about it on them web site .Have a good one

  19. Dude May 3, 2015 at 6:20 am #

    Hi! I’m a Swedish guy and I like to see that so many commenters share my view of Swedish women 🙂 I am about to leave this country for ever. I just wish I made this decision much earlier. Anyway, my view of Swedish women compared to all other countries I have visited is that Swedish women think they are queens. Like Nomad experienced one night…you can be nice, play your good game and even buy drinks. You think you have her, then she suddenly says I have a boyfriend, I am going home now, bye. Or if you are just standing around having a good time or having a smoke some random woman can just come up to you and say some man-hating comment and then walk away. That is quite often the case. And you just stand there wondering what the hell did I do to you. And then you remember oooh I am a man, I need to be punished for being a swine. That’s the mind set Swedish women have. That’s what feminism did to this country. It actually hurt the women now because women actually love men, but in Sweden it has reached the point where women must hate men and treat them like shit to fit in socially. It is a very fucked up situation here. That is why so many of you (and me) think they are without humor, shallow, boring and don’t generally dress like a “real” woman. I bet a lot of women here would just loooove to dress more sexy, be more sexy and more outgoing. They can’t because all their feminist friends would ask her what the hell??? Are you giving in to men like that you slut! And then her social status will hit rock bottom. If you get a Swedish girl into bed the same thing happens. She will be very egotistical and boring. Because she can’t give anything to a man in the feminist culture even if she wanted to. It is a country wide mind fuck. I will also mention that it takes 6-12 months to convert a perfectly horny and fantastic woman to convert to the man hating mind set. Also the climate here is horrible!!! And the prices is a joke. You even need to stand in long lines to pay a huge amount of money to even get into many of the nightclubs.

  20. Dude May 3, 2015 at 6:29 am #

    So .. What I mean is that despite fact that have a lot of people from other countries settled here, they will most likely have the man-hating mind set because they want to fit into society and make friends.
    You best bet is to go for a group of partying Persian girls. Yes they love to party and they do go out in all-girl groups. They are funny, open, dress very sexy and awesome in bed!! It seems many of them refuse to be mind fucked by feminism and keep thinking about how locked down they would be in Iran. To me they just don’t rebel against the view of women in Iran, but also against the feminism in Sweden 🙂 We have a lot of Persians in Stockholm and if you got to the more famous nightclubs you will spot them easily.

  21. Jacques July 16, 2015 at 10:53 am #

    Hey! I’ve met quite a few Swedish girls around Europe and in my experience Swedish girls are very friendly, not man-hating and definitely DTF. I think the feminism thing gets overblown. If you’re just visiting a place and hoping to hook-up then it’s probably a good thing that a country is more feminist because the girls will be more open to casual sex. If you don’t live there you don’t need to worry about any negative side effects of feminism; just enjoy the benefits.

    Besides that I’ve always wanted to visit Stockholm and am planning to go there sometime soon. I heard that the city is empty during the summer because everybody is in the countryside/archipelago. Can anybody advise me on this? In which months is the city busy? I’m not going there just to get laid but banging one or two locals will round off the trip nicely…

  22. Eddy October 26, 2015 at 1:58 pm #

    hey guys. nice data. but i have to ask something. i have been 2 days to find reggae bar called “Sderkllaren” it is very near the Substation Medborgarplatsen. But I can’t find that. Is someone been there which called ‘Sderkllaren’. sorry about my bad english. thanks for reading this.

  23. Jim November 15, 2015 at 10:13 pm #

    Sweden was good 30 yrs ago. Or maybe 20plus years ago. Now i would make a big circle around it. Its totaly over Immigrated. There are seriouse problems here. Crime in major city is a problem. The story of women is overrated. Its prob like a saga from a long time ago. I got layed once, but guess what, she was an “refugee” immigrant from Tibet.
