Essentials in Sweden
Stockholm: The most popular part of Stockholm is its charming Old Town, Gamla Stan. The Royal Palace, Stockholm Cathedral and the beautiful Ridderholmen CHurch are located here. For something off-beat, why not take a bath at Storkyrkobadet underneath 18th century vaults.
Kungsleden: Sweden's north is barely populated, making it a great place to enjoy some peace and solitude. Kungsleden is a popular place to do just that in winter and summer with the mountains as your backdrop. It's also a spectacular place for camping.
Gothenburg: If your holidays in Sweden will be centred around shopping, best fit a trip with a Sweden car hire to Gothenburg. This city also has a great nightlife scene, party anyone?
