Is it possible for an urban landscape to be beautifully integrated with its environment?


It may seem impossible, but not so! Stockholm is the best example of this. This metropolis is spread over 14 islands which are interconnected by more than 50 bridges on Lake Mälar. Incredibly, about one third of the metropolitan area is waterways, and another third are green spaces and parks. This means that only one third of the city’s surface area is covered in asphalt, buildings, cars and urban jungle for its 2 million inhabitants.

Stockholm ParkThe result? A beautiful city, integrated in a natural landscape where the air is clean and you are close to nature. Stockholm has the cleanest air of any European city. And it is the first city in the world to include a national park within its perimeter (the “Ecoparken”). Make your reservation today in one of our hotels, hostels, apartments or b&bs in Stockholm and you can discover one of the most environmentally friendly cities in Europe.

Stockholm and World Heritage Sites


The archipelago on which Stockholm is located is home to no less than three UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Birka archaeological site is located on Björkö Island in Lake Mälar and was occupied in the 9th and 10th centuries (possibly the first human settlement in Scandanavia). This archaeological complex illustrates the elaborate trading networks of Viking-Age Europe and their influence on the subsequent history of Scandinavia.

Skogskyrkogården is a cemetery in Stockholm created between 1917 and 1920 by two young art nouveau architects, Asplund and Lewerentz, on the site of former gravel pits overgrown with pine trees. The design harmonizes the surrounding vegetation with the architectural elements. Greta Garbo is buried here.

Palacio DrottningholmThe Royal Domain of Drottningholm stands on an island in Lake Mälar in a suburb of Stockholm. Construction began in 1662 and is the current residence of the Swedish royal family. This European royal residence is inspired by the Palace of Versailles (formerly a residence of the French monarchy).


Surrender Yourself to Stockholm Syndrome

StockholmThis peculiar syndrome was named as such after a 1973 bank robbery in Stockholm. Employees from a bank were taken as hostages for six days, during which time they began to feel sympathy for their kidnappers and refused to testify against their captors. Visit Stockholm and surrender yourself to the charms of this city and suffer a little Stockholm Syndrome of a different sort.
