Stockholm (Sweden) ... site of its Government and Parliament as well as the residence of the Swedish head of state, King Carl XVI Gustaf. Stockholm has been Sweden's political and economic center since the 13th century. Today it is the largest municipality of Sweden, with a population of 776,000, while the populations of the Stockholm urban area and Metropolitan Stockholm are roughly 1.2 and 1.9 million, respectively. With its location on the east coast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, it is widely renowned for its beauty.
Newest Review: ... it isn't the most beautiful palace I've ever seen, in fact to me it always looked like any other big building and I never fancied taking a look around the inside, although my parents regularly took the guided tour with other visitors. Entrance, including the 45 minute guided tour (in either Swedish, English or German), is 100 SEK (£10ish) for adults and is open all year round with the ... more

While my sister and I were studying at university, my parents had the opportunity to move to Stockholm with dad's job. They were able to negotiate a package which included a wonderful apartment in the city centre and return flights for themselves and family so that we could still see each other regularly. I was lucky enough to visit Stockholm around eight times over the three years they were out there so while my knowledge of the city isn't comprehensive, I've had a lot of experience of being a tourist! As most people will be aware, Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden. Something that isn't as well known is that the city is built on 14 islands of the ... Read the complete review

Stockholm is a city I have previously visited several times on business and of which I've even enjoyed a little of the night-life. Stockholm is a very enjoyable place although, in general I find it's architecture somewhat "solid". It is also a very big city, spread, as it is, over hundreds of islands, many with only ferry connections between them. It's our second port of call on our cruise and, once again, we have decided to avoid the organised excursions and simply wander around the city and explore for ourselves. Sure, we would probably miss some of the sights we should see but at least we can decide how to spend our time and how long to stay ... Read the complete review

I stayed in the city of Stockholm for one night in a hostel in the old town. The architecture was beautiful; everywhere you went there were beautifully coloured buildings in different styles. I was surprised at how walkable everything was- I was about fifteen minutes from the main street and the metro station where the heart of the city is. ~~~ATMOSPHERE~~~ There is a real buzz in the new part of town, whilst the old part radiated history and culture. Along the rivers there is amazing scenery and freshness, and there is also a large park towards the south of Stockholm. This city full of the old and new, as well as urban and rural, really does have ... Read the complete review

(Adapted from my travel blog post: http://thereisanotherworld.wordpress.com/2006/07/09/stockholm/) Stockholm is made up of many islands. As a result, it's visually very stimulating and naturally picturesque. For me, the old town (Gamla Stan) is a highlight. Here you'll find a whole network of wonderful little - often cobblestone - streets. The architecture is remarkably quaint and almost medieval, while the area in general is an absolute joy to walk around. Not far away is Stortoget Square, and the Royal Palace, where the changing of guards is an excuse to put on a big extravagant show every day at 1pm - with new ones riding in on horseback. Inside ...

I visited Stockholm in June 2006. I was in the city to run in the Stockholm International marathon (which is the prettiest marathon to run in my opinion - more of that later). Stockholm is the capital of sweden with a population of 800,000. It is a city built on lots of islands which gives each part a distinctive boundary and indentity. With waterways being a central feature, it is a stunningly beautiful city in which you are never more than five minutes from either parkland or a waterway. At the time we travelled, Scandinavia was an expensive holiday option with Sweden having one of the highest living costs of any country, coupled with the ... Read the complete review
