Sweden’s capital city Stockholm is lovingly known as 'beauty on water', a nickname the city certainly deserves. Cheerful houses and lavish palaces sit along the water’s edge on the city’s many islands and ornate cathedral spires pierce the skyline. A leisurely stroll around the city is one of the most pleasant ways to spend your days and the many bridges and ferry rides provide picture-perfect views. One of the most exclusive parts of the city is the neighbourhood of Ostermalm. It's an elegant area, where broad streets play host to Stockholm's affluent shopping district the Bibliotekstan. Visit designer stores, selling renowned international brands, and high-end Scandinavian boutiques. This neighbourhood is also home to the fantastic Swedish History Museum, which contains relics from the Stone Age, Viking Era, and contemporary Sweden. Southeast of Ostermalm is the tranquil island of Djurgarden. Located in central Stockholm, Djurgarden is an emerald oasis with tree-lined parks and rolling lawns that reach the water’s edge. It's an excellent place for long walks, relaxation and offers spectacular views of the sunset. Popular with families, it's also convenient for several main attractions like ABBA: The Museum, Vasa Museum and Skansen Open-Air Museum.
