Overview

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden

Reach Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden, by an early morning train from Copenhagen (5h15 trip). This stunningly beautiful city is built on 14 islands and is surrounded by hundreds of rocky islets. Its location on the shores of the Baltic Sea contributes to extreme seasonal variations, from frozen lakes in winter to peaceful evenings in summer.

About Sweden


Being surrounded by water, the city offers a feel of adventure to all those who visit it. Start your day in historical streets of the charming Gamla Stan and watch the Changing the Guard Ceremony at the Royal Castle. Continue to Södermalm Island to shop in Stockholm’s designers’ and fashion boutiques around Nytorget square. Stockholm’s unique appeal is one of the reasons why it is more and more popular among tourists. Matching other charismatic European destinations, Stockholm has a vibrant cultural scene, with exhibitions, museums and concerts. Lose yourself in the Nationalmuseum to see a superb collection of works dating from the medieval period to the 20th century.

After enjoying a fika (coffee break) with a cinnamon bun, you can relax at the Strandvägen waterfront or on the rooftop of the Kulturhuset.

Go to Drottninggatan, a pedestrian street in the city centre where you will find fashionable shops, design and souvenir shops and department stores.
