Interesting facts about Stockholm

Welcome to Stockholm, where shopping, culture and entertainment are intermingled with history. The capital of Sweden is also lovingly called the Venice of the North thanks to its many bridges, islands and waterways. The city is famous for its beautiful archipelago, where visitors can spend time. Even though Stockholm is Scandinavia's largest city, it’s still easy to get around town on foot or by public transportation


Its location by the sea, coupled with the ample sightseeing opportunities, make Stockholm one of the most appealing Scandinavian cities to visit. Enjoy the picturesque mediaeval narrow lanes of the Old Town and stop for some freshly baked sweet rolls in one of the many cafes. The best spot for admiring the beautiful sea views is the top of Mosebacke hill. The easiest way to get there is by the Katarina lift, which has been in operation for 70 years. Those interested in modern art will enjoy the exhibitions at Moderna Museet on the island of Skeppsholmen. The exquisite boutiques and lounge bars of Östermalm are a must for those who love luxury. Those with more bohemian tastes will enjoy visiting the theatres, ethnic restaurants, small shops and flea markets of Södermalm.
