Stockholm is the beautiful capital of Sweden! The city is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The beautifully preserved buildings of the Old Town, the greenery, the fresh air and the proximity to water are distinctive traits of this city. With its 750-year history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world-class museums and attractions. Most of the city’s attractions can be reached on foot, but public transportation is smooth and efficient. Stockholm is very well positioned, with most of Europe within three hours reach. It is a genuine meeting point in every respect and an increasingly important hub for flights to major destinations in the Baltic Sea region, European Union and the expanding global community.
