Magnificent waterways, islands, palaces and parks, Sweden’s capital is a must for anyone interested in beautiful cities. You’d be forgiven for thinking of meatballs, snow and furniture stores when we mention Stockholm. The fact is, the Swedes are indeed masters of design, and they certainly know how to whip up a tasty meatball or two.
But look a little closer at Sweden’s capital city, and you’ll forget the clichés and find a stunning coastal city made up of 14 islands, over 50 bridges and more green spaces than almost any other city in Europe.
And with an edgy music scene, a slew of trendy bars and more underground clubs than in most European cities, Stockholm is also a capital of cool that makes for a great city break destination no matter what you are looking for.
