Stockholm - it's not a coincidence!

Charlie Caper's magic take on Stockholm. On behalf of Stockholm - The Capital of Scandinavia. Produced by Step2 Communication

Stockholm Smile

Stockholm is celebrated as one of the world's most beautiful cities, built where lake meets sea, on fourteen islands, with nine centuries of history and culture. Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Few other places let you experience lush nature, urban sophistication and cultural history, all in a single day. Welcome to Stockholm -- The Capital of Scandinavia.

Take a swim

The waterways of Stockholm are not only beautiful to look at, they are so clean and clear you can take a dip right in the middle of town. There are not a lot of cities in the world that can make that claim! There are several lovely beaches to bask on and cliffs to jump from around the city. Here are a few examples: Smedsuddsbadet This swimming beach at Rålambshov Park Beach is popular with families. Sun-worshipping Stockholmers choose neighboring Rålambshov Park instead. Långholmens bad Narrow beaches and several large rocks offer good swimming for the experienced. The green island of Långholmen is a popular destination for swimmers. Brunnsviksbadet A swimming beach in Frescati Hage at Brunnsviken in the Ekoparken park. There are also charming inlets and beaches near Haga Park for experienced swimmers. Walk or take the subway to the Universitetet station. Fredhällsbadet Experienced swimmers will enjoy swimming from the rocks with a view of Lake Mälaren. Take the green subway line to Kristineberg and walk along the water’s edge to the swimming area. Fjäderholmarnas bad Take a trip out to the swim-friendly rocks of Stockholm’s nearest archipelago island, only 25 minutes by boat from Slussen or Nybroplan.
