Sweden’s capital city spreads out over 14 islands in Lake Malaren and looks out proudly to the Baltic Sea to the east. Her grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 yearold history beautifully. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the Old Town (Gamla Stan); expect and get cobblestone streets, crooked but beautifully preserved buildings, the Royal Palace, gothic churches and excellent cafes, bars, restaurants and Swedish design-ware shops. Take our advice and get a hit of caffeine at one of Stockholm’s many fine cafés before trawling the boutiques, shops and stores of upscale Swedish and international design boutiques of Ostermalm, as well as independent Swedish labels, vintage and retro shops and boutiques of Sodermalm.
The Vasa is the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world, and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.
