How Far from?
Stockholm frequently appears at the top of lists rating standards of living. The economy is flourishing, pollution is low, and the pace of life is relaxed. Despite being the capital of Sweden and therefore the country’s commercial centre, it is a city of open spaces and lakes, rather than traffic and high rise buildings.

Gamla Stan is the old part of the city, dating back to the 13th century. It is situated on three separate islands, and houses many trendy shops and cafes in its medieval surroundings. The 18th century Royal Palace and Swedish Parliament building are also here.

Still in the old town are the Modern Art Gallery and the National Museum. Those pursuing further entertainment will find it in Normalm, which contains many bars, restaurants, cinemas and nightclubs.

If you’re after tranquility, head to Djurgarden, a large park which used to the royal hunting grounds. Take a dip in the lake in the summer months, and marvel at the Vasanyeet 17th century warship.
