Why Travel Sweden?

 

Sweden is a Scandinavian nation of thousands of coastal islands, inland lakes, forests and mountains. Its principal cities, eastern capital Stockholm and southwestern Gothenburg and Malmö, are all on the sea. Stockholm is home to royal palaces, parkland and museums such as open-air Skansen. Its 13th-century old town, Gamla Stan, is set on islands joined by bridges and ferries.

 

A must visit place is the Fairytale Drottningholm Palace on the island of Lovö, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and lies about 11 kilometers west of Stockholm city center (45 minutes by boat). Next, the Vasa Museum in Stockholm is Sweden's most popular museum and now attracts around a million visitors annually and a visit here, which houses ten separate exhibitions, is a day out in itself. Djurgården park with its many wonderful amenities is also a guaranteed draw for visitors and locals alike, particularly during the glorious Scandinavian summer months.

 

Stockholm is often referred to as the Venice of the North. Distinctive red and yellow timber summerhouses occupy some islands while others remain totally unspoiled. A trip on the water, either in and around the city or to one of the islands, should be top on your list.

 

Sigtuna, Visby Gotland (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Gota Canal that features 47 bridges and 58 locks, Kiruna Lapland,  world's first ever Ice Hotel at Jukkasjärvi, Sweden's highest mountain Kebnekaise, Abisko National Park, Liseberg Theme Park Gothenburg and Gotland and Öland—Sweden's largest islands are all also worth a visit.
