About Stockholm

SwedenSweden’s capital city spreads out over 14 islands in Lake Mälaren and looks out proudly to the Baltic Sea to the east, through the Stockholm archipelago. Her grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 year-old history beautifully

Stockholm is both urban and close to nature. Being built on 14 islands, where lake and sea meets, the water is always present. There are many parks (such as the Royal Djurgården) and green areas within the city, and just outside the city you’ll find easily accessible nature, with forests, lakes, and national parks. From the central parts of Stockholm, you can jump on a boat and be in the Stockholm archipelago within minutes, all year around. (Source)

 

About Sweden

In some ways, visiting Sweden feels like walking right into a fashion or home-decor magazine. There are no boring outfits on the streets of Stockholm, and the care with which houses, cottages, cafes and public spaces are decorated and kept up throughout the country is truly inspiring. But Swedish style is never too showy; form and function are tightly linked in this society known for valuing moderation, practicality, order, simple lines and clever designs. Whether you decide to shop for your own versions or just enjoy the scenery, it’s hard not to fall for the cool aesthetics of this place. (Source)
