most handsome, sophisticated and liveliest city, Stockholm offers the
cleanest air in Europe due to its unique location on fourteen islands
surrounded by water, with parks and gardens liberally scattered around.
A kind of 700 year-old 'Northern Venice', the city has wide, calm streets lined with
magnificent buildings both modern and medieval, more than seventy museums

destination for short breaks or longer holidays to take in a bit
of the rest of Sweden, but try to avoid August's crowds and possible rain.
