    Built on 14 islands, you can see why Stockholm has often been described as Europe´s most beautiful capital. Yet in this city center the water is so clean and fresh you can swim in it or go fishing.

    City of timely contrasts
    Stroll around the tiny, cobbled streets of the old town behind the Royal Palace and you´ll find charming coffee shops and boutiques, antiques and bookshops. Yet cross a couple of bridges and you´ll discover the high-tech style that is today´s lively modern city.

    City of dramatic seasons
    With a blanket of crisp snow and iced-over waterways, winter brings its own magic. In the long, hot summer days when the sun hardly sets, the city lives outdoors with street cafes, performers in the piazzas and parties in the parks.

    Big city status — small town personality
    You´ll find most attractions within easy walking distance, from the Royal Park of Djurgården to trendy shops and restaurants. And, despite the capital city rush, you´ll find the locals friendly, proud to share their city with you and happy to give visitors a warm welcome — nearly always in English of course.

    The ideal city-break
    There´s a wealth of attractions in Stockholm. You´ll find magnificent art galleries and over 100 museums. Choose from the National Museum of Fine Art, the Museum of National Antiquities and the Nobel Museum, where you can see the dynamite and the mould that changed the world or visit the awarded-winning Vasa Museum housing the restored royal warship that sank in 1628 and the Skansen Park with its historical buildings and zoo.

    Stockholm is also great for excursions, for example go via lovely old steamship to the beautiful archipelago of 24,000 islands or to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Drottningholm Palace, gardens ad court theatre.

    Above all — the style, shopping and dining city
    Come and find out why Stockholm is, according to the Conde Nast Traveller magazine, “one o f the most fashionable places on the planet” — a city celebrated as much for its design, culture, lifestyle and shopping as for its excellent bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs.

    Stockholm´s chefs are now regularly winners of international awards — come and taste why.
