Sweden's capital Stockholm has only a little more than 900.000 inhabitants but it has all the more to offer during the whole year. On 14 islands, Stockholm attracts visitors from all over the world with its beautiful architecture, numerous museums, cosy cafés and breathtaking nature. Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm, is especially charming. It was built in the Middle Ages and is characterised by winding alleyways and underground vaults. The special charm of the old town invites you to stroll along Västerlånggatan, visit a café at the main square Stortorget and absorb the medieval history of the city. Another classic in Stockholm is the Royal Castle on the edge of the Old Town, a popular meeting place in summer and winter. Stockholm's landmark, however, is the Stadshuset, the city hall with its distinctive tower. From there you have a breathtaking view over the beautiful capital. One of the most famous Swedish exports is undisputedly the band ABBA. "Mamma Mia!" fans can experience the whole world of the Swedish pop stars up close in the Stockholm ABBA Museum. Since it is known that it is cold in Sweden for a long time, the Swedes have come up with something great: Fika. That's what they call sitting together in a café with hot coffee or tea and a Swedish pastry like the famous cinnamon bun. This goes particularly well in the quieter Vasastan district, where café after café is lined up.
