Stockholm, Sweden- No fewer than 50 bridges connect the Swedish capital’s 14 islands to its mainland. Founded in 1252, the city of Stockholm is a beautiful balance of historic and modern. With such rich history, the breadth of this city’s cultural offerings is vast. Take a short stroll through the city center to Stockholm’s preserved medieval city, and foremost attraction, Gamla Stan or the Old Town. As the oldest and founding section of the city you’ll essentially step back in time. With many structures dated as far back as the 13th century, historic buildings, shops, and cafés line the narrow streets with precious cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages throughout their facade. Many beautiful churches and museums, including Sweden’s national Stockholm Cathedral and Nobel Museum can be found here as well. Café culture is ubiquitous in Sweden, where the art of the coffee break, or what is known as fika, is customary. This traditional pause in daily activity presents the perfect opportunity to stop into one of Stockholm’s fantastic bakeries to sip on something warm and delight in sweet pastries. From the old-world charm to state-of-the-art, this top-flight city is a wonderful treasure, with incredible public /green spaces, restaurants, galleries, museums, and palaces to explore on your Stockholm cruise.
