The beauty that you do not expect!
When it comes to Stockholm, or more generally, Scandinavia, it is very easy to refer to the cold northern countries. Nothing could be more wrong. Who has been there knows very well: Stockholm is anything but. An international capital that has nothing to envy to emblazoned names like Berlin, London or Paris, just to name a few.
Who has been there, knows perfectly well that the Swedish capital is a young and youthful city, full of life and locals; a city that innovates and has been able to innovate; a city with an interesting gastronomic offer. But above all, a city of great charm and tradition, and rich in history.
Large commercial port, it is built on 14 islets connected by bridges. It is rich in museums (of course, the one dedicated to ABBAs), ancient churches, and grand palaces. It's welcoming, as only the Swedes know how to be.
