OVERVIEW OF STOCKHOLM CITY
Welcome to one of the most beautiful cities of the world. The lovely, lively Stockholm, with its maritime bent and international flavour, is a magnet for tourists. Called the "Beauty on Water", the city is situated on 14 islands in Lake Malaren, which marks the beginning of an archipelago of 24,000 islands, skerries, and islets stretching all the way to the Baltic Sea. Many travellers visit Stockholm, the Swedish capital, because of its natural fascination. Its water is so pure you can both swim and fish right in the heart of town as well as partake of boat tours offering such treats as live music and shrimp buffets.
Stockholm has an abundance of parks and fascinating museums, a rich cultural life and many excellent restaurants. Go back 750 years in time and feel the medieval atmosphere of the Old Town "Gamla Stan" as you wander through the narrow streets. Experience the Vasa Museum - housing the 17th-century Royal warship Vasa; nearby Skansen, the world´s largest open-air folk museum complete with its own zoo; Millesgarden, home of sculptor Carl Milles and Waldemarsudde, home of Prince Eugen. The island of Djurgarden, the world's first National City Park, is only a short walk from the pulse of the inner city.
Stockholmers and visitors alike come here to relax in the leafy shade and rest their eyes on green. Stockholm has got history - but also the latest in fashion and IT. This is most obvious on the island of Sodermalm, a hotbed of fashion, young culture and entertainment.
Everything is in easy walking distance, everybody speaks perfect English, and light summer nights when the sun barely dips below the horizon and short, snowy winter days make Stockholm a great destination for short break at any time of year.
