This is Stockholm
Modernity meets tranquility. Trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs next to idyllic archipelago. Welcome to a city where it is easy to breathe – and to feel your pulse.
The Stockholm region is home to three of Sweden’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites – spots judged as invaluable places that belong to all of humanity. Visiting Birka, Drottningholm or the Woodland Cemetery is like time traveling to three different periods in Sweden’s history.You can meet Vikings after a boat ride on the sparkling waters of Lake Mälaren, see the 300 year-old theater machinery at Drottningholm palace theater, or stroll among architect Gunnar Asplund’s chapels in the world famous landscape behind the cemetery walls. All three of Stockholm’s World Heritage Sites are excellent choices for an excursion beyond the ordinary.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites are unique places that bear witness to the history of humanity and the world. There are 14 World Heritage Sites in Sweden and over 800 worldwide. The UNESCO World Heritage Convention speaks of identifying priceless locations, protecting them and preserving them for the future.
