Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and lies on many islands and peninsulas. The city has some of the best museums, art galleries, theater arts, and parks. The T-bana, Stockholm’s underground metro can take visitors to almost any attraction in the city.
However, many love to explore the city on foot where they can walk the old cobblestone streets past colorful buildings and bridged waterways. History lovers can enjoy the Vasa Museum, tour the Royal Palace, or see the historic Stockholm City Hall. For those that just want to walk around and see the beauty of Stockholm, they can head to Djurgarden, explore old town Gamla Stan, or even take a boat tour. No matter what type of adventure you would like, Stockholm is sure to have something for everyone.
