The largest and capital city of Sweden, Stockholm is admired as one of Scandinavia’s most beautiful capitals. Located in southeastern Sweden, the capital city spans across scores of islands and rocky islets that are all connected by charming old bridges and modern causeways. Lush green parks, world-class attractions and a blend of historic and modern architecture make Stockholm an appealing tourist destination.
Stockholm is a large, cosmopolitan city comprised of many diverse ethnic districts. While most of the city’s main attractions can be accessed by foot, Stockholm offers an extensive public transport system that includes buses, trams, subway, light rail and ferries.
Among Stockholm’s must-see attractions is the city’s well-preserved medieval center with its beautiful old churches, royal palaces, picturesque bridges, canals and cobblestone streets lined with cafes and shops. The lush green island of Djurgården is home to some of Stockholm’s most popular tourist attractions such as the Gröna Lund theme park, the Stockholm Zoo and the Skansen Open-Air Museum. A must-do is to view the city from atop the world’s largest round building, the Ericcson Globe.
