Sweden is squeezed between Norway and Finland and is a land of wonder. The capital, Stockholm, if often confused with Switzerland (Wait, what?), is a jewel among Northern cities.

It is actually made of several islands linked by bridges and each island has its own atmosphere and cultural richness which makes it fascinating to visit.

Gamla Stan, the historic centre is surrounded by the icy waters and is where the Stockholms Slott, the Royal Palace stands and where several museums can be found.

Not much into museums? In the small medieval streets of Gamla Stan, you can find restaurants where traditional Swedish food can be found. Try a Swedish smorgås for lunch it is a delicacy and a favourite among tourists and locals alike.
