A unique and beautiful capital

Stockholm is a unique capital in many ways. It offers everything you expect to find in a cosmopolitan city; beautiful architecture, trendy shopping, museums, theatres, nightclubs, international food and a music scene that attracts stars nationwide and globally.

On top of that, you are met by stunning waterfront views almost wherever you go, as Stockholm is built on fourteen islands. Stockholm, famous for its many green areas, was recently ranked the best student city in the Nordic countries, and rated the safest capital in Europe.
