About Stockholm

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous urban area in the Nordic countries. It is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden, and the main centre for corporate headquarters in the Nordic region. Stockholm is one of the cleanest capitals in the world. The city was granted the 2010 European Green Capital Award by the EU Commission; this was Europe’s first “green capital”.

Stockholm might be known for IKEA outlets, ABBA and Eurovision winners, but it also offers so much more.  The land of the Volvo features fascinating medieval architecture in its charming Old Town (Gamla Stan), a fashion shopping mecca (Norrmalm) and a plethora of world-class museums; that includes “ABBA: The Museum”, an interactive exhibit about the world-famous Swedish pop-group.

Climate

Stockholm has an oceanic climate with humid continental influences. Though autumn (September-November) does not last long, the average temperatures range from 1 °C (34 °F) to 4 °C (39 °F). Plan what to put in your suitcase.

Getting Around

Stockholm’s system of buses, light rail, trams, trains and metro make public transit a convenient option for visitors.  The metro is the best option for travellers going in and around Stockholm, and it has connections to the greater commuter rail system.

The Vasa Museum      

The Vasa Museum has become a natural part of Stockholm’s skyline. Its masts rising high above Djurgården have become a beacon guiding curious tourists and Stockholmers alike. Vasa has not always been housed in such splendour. From her salvaging in 1961 until 1988 Vasa’s home was a 27-year long temporary one at the Wasavarvet Museum.

Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. All of Gamla Stan and the adjacent island of Riddarholmen are like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. Gamla Stan is also popular with aficionados of handicrafts, curious, and souvenirs. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook.
