Stockholm is one of the most beautiful capitals in the world. The old part of the city is especially picturesque and walking through the city’s waterways and parks is really a great way to spend a week-long break.
The city is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The buildings, the modern design, the chic style, the greenery, the fresh air and the proximity of the water are the hallmarks of this city. Eco Park, the first National City Park in the world, is a green area that is like the city’s lung and is a constant part of its charm. With its 750-year history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide choice of world-class museums and many attractions. Most of the city’s sights can be reached on foot, and you can explore many things for a short walk. You can see only one day of active urban life, the history of civilization, and the natural environment of people.
