Stockholm - The Capital of Scandinavia

April 4th, 2008

Stockholm

Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval city centuries, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction. Stockholm offers a several museums, theaters, sights, attractions and events, whether you’re interested in history, art, opera, modern dance, traditional handicraft, contemporary design or anything else. Stockholm is a very diverse city with something for everyone.

    Every season has its own appeal but a normal winter (whatever that is nowadays) requires a bit of planning and some wintry clothing of course.

    Thank you for the information. My family is taking a trip to Stokholm this summer and we don’t have much of a clue how to prepare.
