STOCKHOLM


The Swedish capital lies at the point where Lake Mälaren pours itself into the Baltic Sea. Water is omnipresent in this royal city, which extends across numerous islands, peninsulas and the mainland. Its many waterways and bridges have earned it the nickname “Venice of the North”.


A STROLL THROUGH THE OLD TOWN


Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is Stockholm’s historic centre, and is easily accessible from the cruise port by public transport. Situated on Stadsholmen Island, the historic heart is also known as “the city between the bridges”. At its centre lies Stockholm’s oldest square,


Stortorget or Old Town façades


“big square”. It is lined by narrow buildings some of which date


back to the Middle Ages. The square is dominated by the stock exchange, the baroque Börshuset housing the Swedish Academy and the Nobel Museum. The picturesque lanes and alleyways, many of which are still cobblestoned, feature historic façades from the Renaissance, baroque and Neoclassical periods. The area is full of stylish shops and classy restaurants, although the elegant setting is also refl ected in the prices.
