Prepare to have your breath taken away when you arrive to the city of Stockholm. Swedish culture offers delightful literature, architecture, museums, art galleries, suburban nightlife, theatres, excellent cuisine, design and much more. Most of the city's charming attractions are found in the inner city but don't neglect the undeniable beauty of the archipelago, best explored with a Stockholm car hire.
Central Stockholm: The City Hall (where the Nobel Prize banquet takes place every year), Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace (official Royal residence) and the Skansen (an open-air museum) are all must-sees.
Museums: Stockholm has more than 70 museums, so you can be sure you won't be bored while on holidays in Stockholm. The Vasa Museum is probably the most popular which features a warship from 1628 and was recovered from the water in the 1960s almost entirely preserved.
Shopping: Shopping is a must in this Nordic city. Sweden is, after all, known around the world for its design and giving the world IKEA. Clothing, textiles, interior decoration, hand-made trinkets and hand-painted glassware are all great souvenirs.
