Discover the Cultural Heart of Scandinavia
Sweden is one of Scandinavia’s most beautiful countries, graced with vast expanses of pristine wilderness and highlighted by some of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Its capital, Stockholm, is a cultural and commercial hub built on the 14 islands of an archipelago. Stroll the cobblestone streets of Old Town (Gamla Stan in Swedish); enter the Stockholm City Hall, site of the annual Nobel Prize awards banquet; and don’t miss the Vasa Museum, home to the world’s only preserved 17th-century ship.
Gothenburg, on the country’s western shores near Norway, also brims with charms for travellers, boasting several Michelin-starred restaurants, while Malmo, to the south, is noted for its strikingly diverse architecture. To the far north lies Swedish Lapland, where the traditional Sami culture still thrives.
For a glimpse into the region’s distant past, there’s Sweden’s first town, Sigtuna, where you can view medieval runestones. Or choose nearby Uppsala to tour the soaring Gothic cathedral, renowned for its 14th-century murals of Saint Eric, patron saint of Sweden. Leave the mainland to visit Visby on the island of Gotland, and walk its Hanseatic town center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
