About Stockholm

As Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm is the political, cultural, economic and transport heart of Sweden, and is the location of the Swedish government, the Parliament, and the royal palace. The whole area of Stockholm is spread over 14 islands and a peninsula, and has the fine reputation as the “Venice of the North.” The area of the old city has a long and well-preserved history, with more than a hundred museums and famous historical sites. It is also a modern city with many well-designed clothing and furniture stores.

Popular Attractions in Stockholm

Stockholm Palace

Historical Architecture
The Stockholm Royal Palace is located on the island of Stadt in the Old Town. It is the place where the King of Sweden works and celebrates, and is also a major tourist attraction in Stockholm. The palace was built in the Middle Ages. In the early days, it was a military fort. It was gradually transformed and expanded at the end of the 17th century and became the royal palace of today. The palace is built on the water, and the building is square. It is a small square castle with a white exterior and elegant atmosphere. Now the Swedish royal family does not live here, but lives in Queens Island in the suburbs, but the king drives to the palace every day to go to work.

The Old Town is located on a small island in the heart of Stockholm. The Old Town dates back to the 13th century. The city has medieval alleys, round stone streets and antique buildings, influenced by the North Germanic style. Since Sweden has no war for 200 years, the Old City is well preserved, and you can feel the breath of history and modernity, especially on the streets of Linhe and Linhai. The main sights of the Old Town include the Royal Palace, Stockholm Cathedral, the Nobel Museum and the Knights Church.

City Hall
Historical Architecture
Stockholm Stadshus is where the Municipal Council for the City of Stockholm meets. It stands on the eastern tip of Kungsholmen island, next to Riddarfjärden's northern shore and facing the islands of Riddarholmen and Södermalm. It is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet and one of Stockholm's major tourist attractions.The building was inaugurated in 1923 and is designed around two open spaces, a piazza called Borgargården on the eastern side, and the Blå hallen to the west. The southeast corner of the building, immediately adjacent to the shore, is marked by a monumental tower topped by the Three Crowns, an old national symbol for Sweden. The tower is 106 metres high and is accessible by an elevator or by a stair of 365 steps. The eastern side of its base is decorated with a faux tomb and gold-plated sarcophagus of Birger Jarl. When visiting the Stadshus, don't miss the small park between the building and Lake Mälaren's shore where several sculptures awaits.
Vasa Museum

Museum
Say "Hej!" to the seven seas at Stockholm's Vasamuseet, home of the warship Vasa, the most complete seventeenth century ship ever salvaged. Scandinavia's most visited museum, the Vasamuseet offers exhibits on maritime history and Scandinavia in the seventeenth century. Although the Vasa sunk during her maiden voyage in 1628 and spent over three hundred years under water, much of the warship has been restored and is now on display in this building, itself a destination for architecture buffs. Take a 25 minute guided tour around the Vasa's impressive hull, watch a film to learn about the archaeological processes that saved her or simply wonder at the trajectory of Scandinavian maritime history at this unique museum.

Trip Moments

JOJO’s wonderful trip   
Born in the water town, I was born with no resistance to the water-rich city. Venice was too commercial and too noisy. After a week, I left and went to Europe again until I came to Stockholm, which is known as the Nordic Venice. Although it is suspected of following the trend, Stockholm is really beautiful. It is between the Malaren and the Baltic Sea. The city is spread over fourteen islands. Multiple bridges are connected. There aren't too many tourists here. The Swedes live here leisurely. Because of the neutrality, Stockholm's Old City has escaped two world wars and is extremely well preserved. You can see every style of the church in the Middle Ages. Take the ferry from the pier and walk between the water systems, and experience the rogue history.
