Stockholm Travel Tips
Sweden's capital is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, a mirage of saffron- and terracotta-colored buildings shimmering between blue water and bluer skies all summer, or covered with snow and dotted with lights in winter. It's also a vibrant, modern city, famous for producing sleek designs, edgy fashion and world-class nightclubs.
Take a wander through the old town, Gamla Stan, a compact maze of cobblestone streets winding beneath the stucco walls of red, orange and vanilla buildings. The Royal Palace crowns the tiny island, waterfront hills are graced by lovely old residences, and the city center is lined with trendy boutiques, art galleries and restaurants that can hold their own against any big city on the continent.
