About Sweden

Sweden is a Scandinavian nation with thousands of coastal islands and inland lakes, along with vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains. Its principal cities, eastern capital Stockholm and southwestern Gothenburg and Malmö, are all coastal. Stockholm is built on 14 islands. It has more than 50 bridges, as well as the medieval old town, Gamla Stan, royal palaces and museums such as open-air Skansen.

Items needed to prepare for your trip



Summer in Stockholm: a Cyclists Paradise

Summer in Stockholm is a bike lovers paradise. In some ways, using a car during the warm season seems ludicrous. Pedaling along the bright, winding alleys of old town and exploring islands of the archipelago by bike is a healthy, and useful way to get oriented.


A Spa Day High Above the Rooftops of Stockholm

Stockholm’s cool Nordic beauty encompasses all aspects of city life. After a several days of exploring the metropolis you’ll need a moment to relax. What better way to do that than a day at the sky high spa.
