Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and we hope you will also enjoy this vibrant, historical yet modern corner of Scandinavia.

Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and combines modern attractions with historic charm. Here you will find two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Royal Palace Drottningholm (the residence of the royal family) and the magical Skogskyrkogården, or Woodland Cemetery. You will also enjoy and abundance of green space and be able to stroll the cobblestone streets of Old Town and over the 57 bridges connecting 14 islands and cross the city’s canals. The 19th-century Skansen was the world’s first open-air museum and is still a premier place to learn about Swedish history.
