Stockholm, Sweden

Lovely monuments, fascinating museums, thousands of islands and the best hotspots: sample the local atmosphere of charming Stockholm!

Stockholm is a wonderful city to completely unwind or find inspiration. The Swedish capital is in the middle of the archipelago, an area with no less than 24,000 little islands. And… the city itself is situated on 14 islands, all connected by bridges. It is therefore with good reason that Stockholm is called the ‘Venice of the North’!
