Sweden - Stockholm & Around (Chapter)
This is the Stockholm & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sweden guidebook.
Stockholm’s good looks and mad style could be intimidating, but this city is an accessible beauty. Gamla Stan is a concoction of storybook buildings, imposing palaces and razor-thin cobblestone streets. The modern city centre shines like a fashion magazine come to life.And it’s all surrounded by pristine forests and an archipelago. What’s not to love?
- study a shipwreck – and Swedish history – at the Vasamuseet
- wander atmospheric Gamla Stan and the Royal Palace
- visit Sweden in miniature at Skansen open-air museum
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Around Stockholm, Drottningholm, Vaxholm, Stockholm Archipelago, Kapellskär, Tyresta National Park, Sigtuna and Mariefred.
