Stockholm

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. Stockholm is one of the Baltic Sea archipelago areas where you can enjoy 14 islands and over 50 bridges. Stockholm is an old city with cobblestone streets, 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Ferries and sightseeing boats shuttle passengers between the islands as well as between Finland and Sweden and Estonia and Sweden.

You might know that Stockholm is also the second most prolific tech and start up hub in the world, second only to Silicon Valley. Stockholm attracts the most innovative people from all corners of the world and what meets them is a capital known for its beauty and closeness to nature. You are likely to see people both riding horses and stand up paddling while you wander the streets of Stockholm. Stockholm may be liberal and forward-looking when it comes to collective mindset, but it’s rich in history too. When in town, don’t miss out on the maritime Vasa Museum and the world’s first open air museum Skansen, both located on the island of Royal Djurgården.
