The unique layout of Stockholm – a collection of 14 islands linked by 500 bridges – makes Sweden’s capital city one of the most interesting in the world. Clean, friendly and managing to maintain a distinctly personal feel despite being a thriving commercial and financial hub, Stockholm is a juxtaposition of traditional Nordic style combined with ultra-modern developments that are sympathetic to the landscape and the character of the location.
Fly to Stockholm with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a genuinely friendly city that welcomes visitors from around the world.
The Old Town, Gamla Stan, is a time capsule of historical buildings, and over 30% of the city area is made up of waterways. Green spaces make up a further 30%, making this one of the most spacious and open cities in Europe. Air quality is superb, and the city is incredibly clean but without becoming clinical.
Whether you like your tourist attractions to be man-made or natural, Stockholm has plenty of both. As well as the 14 main islands that make up the city itself, the Stockholm archipelago includes a further 24,000 islands and islets, and is an internationally important haven for wildlife.
A great way to see the city is to take a boat tour along its many canals and waterways, which will take you past the royal palace at Gamla Stan, and the beautifully preserved and architecturally significant Riddarholmskyrkan medieval church.
Stockholm has more than 70 museums, including the Nobelmuseet, where you can learn all about the history of the Nobel Society and its prizes. The Naturhistoriska riksmuseet (Natural History Museum) is a well-presented collection, and the Historiska museet (Swedish History Museum) has fascinating exhibitions on Sweden’s Viking past and an impressive treasure collection called The Gold Room.
For art lovers the impressive open-air sculpture museum of Millesgården is a fine exhibition of work by Carl Milles.
