Stockholm – the Capital of Scandinavia
Welcome to Stockholm and one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved mediaeval city centres, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction.
Just outside the city, the archipelago of 24 000 islands is waiting to be explored.
The Capital of Sweden is a city of contrasts - water and islands, history and innovation, small town and big city, long light summer nights and short winter days.
Thanks to the cityZs compact size, you can see and do most things in a short space of time - which makes it a perfect destination for city breaks or longer stays.
Stockholm is one third water, one third green belt and one third city. The island of Djurgården, the world's first National City Park, is only a short walk from the inner city.
