Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and a popular tourist destination. There is much to see in Stockholm. Most of the buildings in the Old Town were built from the 16th century to the 19th century and are now being used as shops, cafés, restaurants, hotels, business offices and museums. There is so much history in Stockholm that it will be difficult to see it all in one short vacation.
Stockholm is comprised of 14 islands, which are situated in close proximity to one another so the water between the islands gives Stockholm a Venice feel. The difference between Venice and Stockholm water, though, is that you can swim or fish in the pure waters of Stockholm from anywhere in town. You can also take a boat tour through the islands or rent a boat and take your own tour of the islands.
