STOCKHOLM, WEATHER, CURRENCY ETC.
Stockholm is the capital and the most populous city in Sweden and Scandinavia, with a total population of a little over 2,000,000 in the metropolitan area. Founded in c. 1250, possibly as early as 1187, Stockholm has long been one of Sweden’s cultural, media, political, and economic centres. Its strategic location spread across 14 islands on the coast in the southeast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important. The city is known for its beauty, its buildings and architecture, its abundant clean and open water, and its many parks.
.
The temperature in Stockholm in November is between 0°C – +10°C with possibilities for rain. We suggest you bring a warm sweater and a rainproof jacket or coat.
 .
The currency is the Swedish Krona (the Swedish Crown).
