One of the most fascinating cities in the world, Stockholm has been awe-aspiring tourists with its tranquil green parks and lakes.
The capital of Sweden
, Stockholm always delights travellers from all over the world. Considered to be one of the most astonishing cities in the world, its coloured buildings rise beautifully.
Summer offers clear blue waters and skies while snow covers the city like a blanket during the winter months. It is a lively modern city that has been producing awe-aspiring architecture for years.
With a vision of parks, lakes and inspiring skylines, Stockholm is surrounded by no less than 14 islands and thousands of smaller islets that add to the drama and beauty of Scandinavia. Its location on the Baltic Sea means that there are distinct seasonal variations.
Since water surrounds the city, Stockholm lacks the urban hustle and bustle of other major European capitals, making travel to the city far easier and enjoyable.
The old town of Gamla Stan is a little maze of streets. Its stucco walls of its red, orange and vanilla buildings rise magnificently and colourfully around the numerous souvenir shops and ice-cream parlours. Known as the oldest attraction and one of the most preserved medieval city centres in the world, its winding streets are lined with antiques and art galleries.
Neighbouring island Sodermalm
is graced with high hills, beautiful old houses, bohemian shops, art galleries and clubs. The main city centre is constantly buzzing with boutiques and restaurants.
With over 700 years of history, Stockholm oozes royal elegance delightfully. The Royal Palace
, gothic churches, cafes, bars and restaurants all add to the Swedish character. We also suggest visiting Stockholm Stadshus
(Stockholm City Hall), where the Novel Banquet
takes place annually. From the City Hall tower, you will be able to have a most incredulous view over the city.
