About Sweden and Stockholm

Sweden is a country full of clean living and fresh air with many natural wonders to behold such as the midnight sun and the Northern Lights.

Depending which part of Sweden you are in, during the summer it is possible to see the sun 24 hours a day for a whole week. Conversely certain parts of Sweden, such as Kiruna, go from having 24 hours of daylight in July to having no hours of daylight on the first day of the year.

Then there is the magical Aurora Borealis, nature’s own special light show, which is known as the Northern Lights. These ghostly patterns of green, yellow and blue which are painted across the sky are in fact caused by solar energy being carried from the sun to the Earth on solar winds. The best time to see the Northern Lights is between September and May in Sweden’s Arctic Circle.

The capital of Sweden is Stockholm and this picturesque city is spread out over 14 islands as it faces onto the Baltic Sea. Despite the fact that it is more than 700 years old, Stockholm prides itself on being extremely modern and forward thinking. Stockholm can compare with any other city in the world in terms of its choice of restaurants, variety of places to go shopping and excellent nightlife and has many trendy clubs and bars to spend time in.

The attractive skyline of Stockholm is a triumphant combination of futuristic new architecture along with very old buildings which have been beautifully preserved such as the 13th century Birger Jarl´s Tower - - one of Stockholm’s oldest buildings. Within Stockholm the Drottningholm Palace, Royal Palace and City Hall have to be seen to be believed and are a testament to the traditions of the Swedish monarchy.

Stockholm has lakes to swim in, parks to walk in and tonnes of top quality accommodation to stay in. The city itself is compact enough to explore on foot, while taking a boat out past all the islands is an unforgettable way to spend the day. As well as the 14 islands on which Stockholm was built, there is a vast archipelago of around 24,000 islands to see.

To hire a car is also recommended as the best way to get round what is the largest of the Nordic countries. That way you can get to many other parts of Sweden which are worth seeing, not least the impressive cities of Gothenburg and Malmo. These cities all have major airports which you can fly into from abroad.

Having a car will also let you access areas such as the ski resort of Are, and the rugged beauty of the Abisko National Park. Just remember that you may be driving in heavy winter conditions and could need the appropriate four wheel drive vehicle, snow chains or snow tires. Sweden’s unspoilt natural beauty also has the drawback of meaning that wild animals such as moose and deer can potentially run out onto the roads so exercise caution.
