Stockholm is the capital and the biggest city of Sweden and is built on fourteen small islands. It’s Scandinavia’s most populated urban region, and it’s also the seat of the national Swedish government as well as the official residence of the Swedish royal family and the prime minister.
Sweden's capital is one of the most wonderful cities on earth, a mirage of saffron and terracotta-painted edifices gleaming between blue water and blue skies during the summer, or covered with snow and dotted with lights in winter. It's also a lively, fashionable city, renowned for top-class nightclubs and great fashion.
Once your cheap Stockholm flights are booked and you’ve arrived there, make sure to spend some time in the old town, Gamla Stan, strolling through the compact labyrinth of cobblestone roads. The stucco walls of its red, orange and vanilla edifices lean against each other over numerous gift stores and ice-cream parlours, while the Royal Palace crowns the little island. Just to the south of Gamla Stan is another island district, Södermalm, where high waterfront hills are graced by beautiful old houses and the main roads are packed with bohemian shops, art exhibitions and clubs. On the other side of Gamla Stan is the city centre, a vibrant metropolis whose stores and restaurants can hold their own against just about any big city on the continent.
