Welcome to STOCKHOLM
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG
eurocityguide.com - eurocityguide.com


Information about STOCKHOLM Stockholm is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful national capitals in the world. The Old Town is particularly spectacular, and walking around the city's waterways and parks is a glorious way to spend a week-long stretch of European summer.This lovely, lively city, with its maritime bent and international flavour, is a magnet for immigrants as well as tourists.The city is ideally situated for trade connections, with the 24,000 islands of the skrgrd (archipelago) protecting the urban islands from the open seas.Within a hundred years, Stockholm was the largest city in Sweden, dominated by an impregnable castle and surrounded by a defensive wall. By the late 15th century, the population was around 6000, and Stockholm had become a significant commercial centre. Since the country's entry into the European Union, Stockholm's progress towards becoming an affordable, vivacious tourist destination has continued apace. Stockholm has got history - but also the latest in fashion and IT. The trendy Stockholmers are often used as a test market by international companies, as they are quick to pick up on the latest trends. Thanks to the city's compact size, you can see and do most things in a short space of time - which makes it a perfect destination for city breaks or longer stays, all the year round.
