| || ||A city of islands beckons |
The capital city of Stockholm is frequently referred to as one of the world's most beautiful cities, which is not surprising given its unique location. Stockholm was built over eight centuries on 14 islands, where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, alongside the spectacular archipelago: a unique maritime landscape with more than 30,000 islands and islets.
| || ||Modern style and medieval history |
Here, modern and progressive Swedish lifestyles blend seamlessly with centuries-old history. No visit to Stockholm is complete without a stroll through Gamla stan, Stockholm's charming Old Town. Built in the 12th century, its narrow alleys, winding cobblestone streets and quaint architecture will take you back in time. Its cozy cafés and top-class restaurants will wow you in the present.
| || ||Food, design, culture and more |
Stockholm is a pedestrian-friendly city filled with sights, grand attractions, world-class restaurants, bars, cafés, and shopping. Acknowledged as a leading design center in Europe, Stockholm offers enough fashion, art, and crafts inspired by local traditions to entertain you for weeks.

Whether you're an ABBA fanatic or just a casual listener, immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the famous Swedish supergroup at ABBA The Museum, now open on Djurgården inside the new Swedish Music Hall of Fame. Designed to bring the group to life through interactive holograms and digital costumes you can "wear" yourself, ABBA The Museum is a lot more than just a collection of stage costumes and classic memorabilia (though it has that too).

For years now, Stockholm has not only become a favorite destination of the tourist in search of the latest trends, culture, fashion, design, music, entertainment, good food and relaxing atmospheres, it has also become a favorite spot for gays and lesbians who want more than just a neighborhood with gay-friendly bars. Some people say that if there was ever a capital city designed by gay people for gay people to enjoy, Stockholm would be it!
