One of the most attractive capital cities at any time of year. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval city centres, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery. Where ever your interest lies, be it history, art, opera, modern dance, traditional handicrafts or contemporary design, Stockholm has something for you with its wealth of museums, theatres, sights and events.
With an excellent transport infrastructure you are never far from the shops, restaurants or the incredible scenery and nature of Stockholm's Archipelago. Tubes, trains, buses and boats (many of them free with the Stockholm Card) allow easy access to picturesque Gamla Stan and the 24,000 islands that make up Greater Stockholm. Stockholm and Sweden are no longer very expensive places to shop, and prices compare favourably with other European destinations. All the department stores and most of the larger shops are open seven days a week. Stockholm attracts tourists from all over the world with its unique mixture of natural beauty, cultural heritage and modern international urban culture, including its dynamic design, fashion, excellent cuisine, music, art and entertainment scenes.
