Stockholm

Welcome to Stockholm, the Royal Capital of Sweden. Discover a city like no other - a city built on 14 islands, where you are never far from the water. Well-preserved medieval buildings stand alongside modern architecture. Stockholm is also home of the Nobel Prize. And just outside the city, the archipelago of 24 000 islands is waiting to be explored.

Stockholm is a city of contrasts - water and islands, history and innovation, small town and big city, short winter days and long, light summer nights - with a dazzling array of impressions. Thanks to the city´s compact size, you can see and do most things in a short space of time - which makes it a perfect destination for city breaks or longer stays, all the year round.

Discover a city of contrasts. Go back 750 years in time and feel the medieval atmosphere of the Old Town "Gamla Stan" as you wander through the narrow streets. Stockholm has got history - but also the latest in fashion and IT. The trendy Stockholmers are often used as a test market by international companies, as they are quick to pick up on the latest trends. This is most obvious on the island of Södermalm, a hotbed of fashion, young culture and entertainment.

Stockholm is one third water, one third green belt and one third city. The island of Djurgården, the world´s first National City Park, is only a short walk from the pulse of the inner city. Stockholmers and visitors alike come here to relax in the leafy shade and rest their eyes on green.

Stockholm’s excellent transport links mean the city can offer reasonable access for all participants.

Stockholm is very well positioned with most of Europe within three hours reach. It is a genuine meeting point in every respect and an increasingly important hub for flights to major destinations in the Baltic Sea Region, European Union and the expansive global community.
