Stockholm Travel Guide

The capital of Sweden and the largest city in the country, Stockholm is regarded as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world. And with good reason too- situated at the junction of Lake Mälaren and Salt Bay, it spreads out over the surrounding islands, a city of steel skyscrapers, cobbled streets, old churches and a beauty which is quite inimitable. With the medieval Gamla Stan as its heart, Stockholm is, nevertheless, a modern city. It’s the industrial and economic centre of Sweden, producing and selling everything from glassware and Absolut vodka to chemicals and paper. It’s also the cultural centre of the country, and boasts of some of the best cultural institutions- the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Dramatic Theatre among them.

Stockholm’s got pretty much everything you could want out of a trip. Beautiful parks and gardens, old buildings and museums; a vivid nightlife and good dining; great shopping and the chance of visiting some of Sweden’s most popular attractions.

Stockholm’s subway, with its hundred stations is vulnerable to fine works of art like mosaics, sculptures and paintings by over 130 artists and hence the city’s subway is famous as the ‘MB world’s longest art gallery!

Want to be really cool? Visit the Absolut Ice Bar at the Nordic Sea Hotel. The temperature is controlled here and remains minus 5 degrees Centigrade all year round - warm capes are given to you on entry so that you don't freeze and become an icicle yourself. Everything in this Ice Bar is made from crystal clear ice right from the bar stools you perch yourself on to the glasses you drink from! A must-visit when in Stockholm.
