It looks like I'll be in Stockholm, Sweden for the last week of July for business and schmoozing. Any locals? Any can't-miss stuff to see?

Check out the museum ship Vasa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasa_(ship)

You just missed Midsommar... and the Surströmming (fermented Baltic herring) festivals are in August. Just wander around, you'll find something exciting.

Gorgeous city, I had a grand time (although the conference sucked up most of my time/energy). Lovely architecture, streets, waterways, food, shopping.

The Vasamuseet was astonishingly good. I saw the Mary Rose just after she was brought up, and so was expecting something comparable. Nope - the Vasa blows it away. For a museum built around basically a single artifact (admittedly, a REALLY big artifact), I'd be hard pressed to imagine anything better.
