Discover Stockholm

Welcome to Stockholm, one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. Built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval city centers, the city is stunningly located by the Baltic Sea.

Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Trends in music, design, fashion, and technology was born here, and innovations that spread worldwide were invented here. Stockholm also has a rich history comprising gorgeous architecture, museums, the Royal Palace and the medieval urban core of Gamla Stan. Trendy bars and world-class restaurants lie shoulder-to-shoulder with historic cafés and cozy neighborhood pubs. This is a city of modern galleries and exclusive department stores, as well as small boutiques and unique shops.

Stockholm is simultaneously urban and close to nature; water is an ever-present feature in this city where lake and sea meet. Over 30% of the city area is made up of waterways and another 30% is made up of parks and green spaces. Parks and green areas abound, and the distinctive white archipelago boats travel to the islands all year round. The atmosphere is open, tolerant and welcoming, and diversity and innovation are encouraged. Stockholm is a city for everyone.
