Introducing Stockholm


Stockholm has been given names like the "City of Bridges" or "Beauty on Water", and the city itself is made up of 14 islands where the Malaren Lake meets the Baltic Sea. In summer months, Stockholm is treated to what are known as "white nights", and going out to Stureplan and enjoying the vibrant nightlife is particularly special. In winter months, the sun barely rises, snow covers the ground, and the frozen Malaren Lake becomes the perfect place to try your hand at some ice-skating. While the atmosphere of Stockholm changes with the seasons, you'll be sure to enjoy its natural beauty, history and culture whatever the time of year.
