Stockholm is world famous for its location by the water . Almost fifty percent of the city’s area is water, and more than 24,000 small islands, islets and skerrys forms a wonderful archipelago surrounding the main city; the city itself consists of fourteen major islands.
One of the most popular destinations in Stockholm, the Old Town is often a visitor’s first port of call, boasting an impressive blend of shops, restaurant and tourist attractions. Known locally as Gamla Stan, the charming Old Town in Stockholm is an excellent choice for an afternoon of sightseeing or a laid-back evening enjoying the city’s beautiful views.
A unique art treasure, the Vasa museum consists of the world’s only preserved 17th-century ship. More than 95% of the vessel is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.
