Stockholm, what a beautiful City to discover! Sweden’s capital is often called “Venice of the North”, water is an ever-present feature in this city where lake and sea meet. It is built on 14 Islands and stunningly located by the Baltic Sea.
The name comes from the words stock (meaning log) and holm (meaning islet). On Stockholm’s shortest day, it sees about 6 hours of sunlight, while on the longest day it’s light for nearly 21 hours. The City is the home of Nobel Prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine and literature.
If you are invited for fika, go ahead, it is the traditional Swedish coffee break.
