Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the largest city of Fennoscandia. Stockholm is located on Sweden’s south-central east coast, where the freshwater Lake Mälaren – Sweden’s third largest lake – flows out into the Baltic Sea. The central parts of the city consist of fourteen islands that are continuous with the Stockholm archipelago. The geographical city centre is situated on the water, in Riddarfjärden bay. Over 30% of the city area is made up of waterways and another 30% is made up of parks and green spaces.
The most important places to visit in Stockholm: Vasa Museum (this is Sweden’s National Maritime Museum.
