Fall in Stockholm

Experience fall in Stockholm through the eyes of DIS students Milly, Isabelle, and Mark.

As fall temperatures drop in Stockholm, the city turns golden. The Swedish capital offers an abundance of indoors and outdoors seasonal activities in the fall, making it an ideal time to study abroad.

I’m so happy with my choice of studying abroad in the fall. I swear I’ve found shades of red and orange I have never seen before.”
