The Trendsetting City
Stockholm is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the North. It's easy to see why; gorgeous terracotta houses, canals and classic architecture are centrepiece to the Swedish capital's banquet. Built on islands connected by a series of bridges, Stockholm lies directly on the divide between the Lake Mälaren and the beginning of the Baltic Sea, with locks and canals allowing boat traffic to pass from one water to the other. It's seen by many as the most beautiful Scandinavian city, and others still as one of the greatest cities in the world. Blending modern architecture with characterful old buildings, and with a young population attracting fun nights out, decent shopping and seriously tasty dishes, Stockholm’s a great place to be!
