Many say that Stockholm is one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. But there is also lots to see and discover outside the city centre.
A visit to Sweden’s beautiful capital Stockholm has everything. Crowds of people and city pulse, narrow lanes in the Old Town, castles and royalty, the amusement park Gröna Lund, parks, classic sights and a fantastic archipelago.
There’s lots to see and do in Stockholm. Skansen is Stockholm’s only zoo, with Nordic animals in enclosures, typical Swedish domestic animals in pastures and more exotic animals in Skansen’s Aquarium. On Junibacken, settings from Astrid Lindgren’s books have been built indoors with lots of space for fun and play.
In the Stockholm region there are also many beautiful palaces and castles to visit. The Royal Palace is in the centre and is where the King and Queen work. And, don’t miss a visit to Drottningholm Palace, a magnificent palace that is so well preserved it has been classed as a World Heritage site. The palace has been the venue of, among other things, Princess Madeleine’s wedding dinner.
