Sweden's capital city is a cool, smart, clean and well preserved, whether it's royal buildings...


Gamla Stan area, Stockholm, Sweden

...or the little old town centre of Gamla Stan.

Gamla Stan is a charming maze-like triplet of islands, with pastel-coloured Renaissance buildings and narrow medieval alleys - one of Sweden's few tourist choke points.


a hot air balloon, Stockholm, Sweden

Scandinavia's 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.


an old building, Stockholm, Sweden

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 and a good selection of cafes and restaurants serving rather dull food.

Everything in the city is within reasonable walking distance, most people speak perfect English and the summer's midnight sun makes visiting Stockholm city a great 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.
