The capital of Sweden and quite possibly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Stockholm is a true gem. Built on 14 islands, where the waters of Lake Malaren meet the Baltic Sea, Stockholm has open spaces, fresh water and clean air in abundance. Modern Stockholm, of charming coloured houses, broad boulevards and futuristic skyscrapers, is beautifully complemented by historic Stockholm, of the medieval old town of Gamla Stan, the Viking city of Birka and the stunning baroque style Stockholm Palace. The main city centre is a buzzing metropolis home to amazing shopping, restaurants and nightlife that can easily rival those of other European capitals.
