Stockholm prides itself on being the most populous city in the Nordic region and is therefore sometimes referred to as the capital of Scandinavia. The city offers a wide variety of attractions and sights to explore, and each neighborhood has a distinct character, ranging from ancient to remarkably modern. Most notable is the historic and charming Gamla Stan neighborhood, the oldest part of the city, and the famous Monteliusvägen trail offers great views over Lake Mälaren, the town hall and the glorious Riddarholmen.
Stockholm is rich in colorful buildings and walking its streets is an experience in itself. Beautiful, old and modern – the fashion capital of Sweden.
