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 south-east 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. You’ll find more info about Stockholm here.
