Mixing classical architecture and aesthetic with that of a modern and trendsetting culture, Sweden’s largest and capital city is certainly a beautiful, must-see destination for any world-travelers. The city is served by Stockholm-Arlanda Airport
, which is located just 40 kilometers outside of Stockholm and is the main international airport serving flights from all over Europe.
Stockholm is arguably Sweden’s most fashionable city, and as one of the oldest cities in the country it has a great deal to offer any travelers from elegant and historic neighborhoods to unique boutiques and an exciting nightlife. All of this intermingles successfully with a dazzling scene of fjords, lakes, and islands. The city is divided into several districts, which are home to different neighborhoods with their own unique characteristics.
Most of the shopping and entertainment venues of Stockholm are concentrated in the city center, mostly scattered throughout the Normalm
districts. The city center is located in the heart of the city and is brimming with shops, restaurants, jazz clubs, and beautiful quiet gardens featuring open-air museums as well.
Visitors to this city should not miss a visit to Stockholm Old Town
, which is where historic and impressive buildings such as The Royal Palace
can be found. There are many stoic heritage buildings tucked away on cobblestone alleyways. Hotels in Stockholm’s old town of Gamla Stan is especially inviting, where it’s easy to get caught up in the nostalgia.
