The Swedish capital, Stockholm, is built on an archipelago. There are 30,000 small islands in total, and it is here that the city’s population tries to return to nature every summer. Favourite activities include boating, relaxing in wooden cabins, forest walks and eating at seafood restaurants. It’s easy to join the party. Just catch a ferry.
The archipelago’s central island is occupied by Stockholm’s old town or Gamla Stan. Its medieval cobbled streets, tall merchants’ houses and royal palace are picture perfect. Here, as elsewhere in Stockholm, restaurants have a flame burning by the door in the winter, making for a cosy atmosphere.
