Stockholm is located on Sweden's east coast of Mälaren flows, and is famous for its beautiful location. One reason for this location is that it is one of the few places where Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea meet. Thus, Stockholm had water connection to other countries around the Baltic Sea, Swedish coastal cities and other cities inland. The city has also served as a defense against foreign fleets that have attempted to penetrate the lake Mälaren.

Stockholm markets for the time as "The Capital of Scandinavia" by the authorities in the Swedish capital. It has aroused great indignation in the other Scandinavian capitals Oslo and Copenhagen.

The city is built on fourteen islands where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea and meets the Stockholmska archipelago - a unique maritime landscape that can accommodate more than 24,000 islands. In the center of Old Town and Riddarholmen, two islands that make up northern Europe's largest and best-preserved medieval city centers with a history dating back to the 13th century. Gamla Stan is also home to the Royal Castle (Northern Europe's largest), several beautiful churches, narrow picturesque alleys and streets and plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Stockholm, Södermalm and Kungsholmen buildings from the 18th to early 20 century, and further out are the modern residential areas and drabantbebyggelse. It is easy to read the city's grain, but the modern meets the historical, the original and sophisticated, creating strong personality and charm.

Perhaps more than in any other city of similar size, it is characteristic of Stockholm the natural location, waterways and parks. North, south, east and west offers lakes, forest and sea. Even in the city center yesterday waterways and parks and forth, forests and recreation areas, full of the attractions and historical attractions.

Skansen in Stockholm was the world's first open-air museum. It shows how people lived and worked in Sweden in the 1800s, and hosts concerts, festivals and celebrations on a large area with many farm buildings, mills, 'olde worlde' shops and a nice wooden. The site has about 160 buildings moved from various parts of Sweden to show a cross section of society in the old days. Skansen also has a zoo that features elk, wolves, lynx and bears.

Vasa Museum in Stockholm is built around the Vasa, the world's only preserved 1600s ships. The story of how she was saved as exciting as the story of how she fell. Everything is captured in detail in this outstanding museum. The museum tells how she was built, how and why she fell and how she was raised from the bottom of Lake Mälaren and perfectly preserved for future generations. A museum not to be missed.

Moderna Museet has an impressive collection of contemporary art and pop art, even by European standards. In 2008, for example, Andy Warhol back in the museum, where the famous artist popkunstverk meets his films from the 1960s, like "Sleep" and "Empire". Works by Picasso, Dali and Rauschenberg are also part of the permanent exhibition.

On the way out to the Museum of Modern Art, just before the bridge to Skeppsholmen, you come to the National Museum. It's not huge, but it has a fine collection of works by artists such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Goya, Renoir, Degas and Gauguin, and Swedish artists such as Carl Larsson, Ernst Josephson, CF Hill and Anders Zorn. And many more.

Natural History Museum is the oldest of all the museums in Stockholm. It is housed in an impressive building near the University of Stockholm and has the task of "providing knowledge about nature and its diversity. We want to make it as exciting as possible. We want to increase your knowledge by offering experiences. "This makes the museum in an excellent manner through its eight permanent exhibits, ranging from" 4 ½ billion years - Earth and life history "to" Treasures of the Earth ". The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions of facts and experiences. Where lean one's back against a chair with an angle depending on how the audience is seated, while giant movie images projected on the dome high above them. The effect is stunning and provides incredible clarity and realism. There are movies about including dinosaurs, mummies and the cosmos.

Other unique attractions in the Stockholm area is Millesgården, one skulptupark and Museum is dramatically situated on Lidingö and 1700s parks Haga Park, Albano and Frescati.
