The city of Stockholm, built on 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges, embraces a unique character of 13th century Old Town with modern high-tech architecture. Stockholm's islands are bordered by Lake Malaren in the west and the Baltic Sea in the east, where the archipelago with its 30.000 islands awaits exploration. The capital is a big city with a small town personality. Its handy size with short walking distances makes it easy to cover a lot in a short amount of time. Stockholm is proudly called "Beauty on Water" and the sightseeing tour, which includes a walk through the Old Town, passing the City Hall where the Nobel festivities take place, makes for a memorable morning tour. Discover a city of contrasts. Go back 750 years in time and feel the medieval atmosphere of Old Town "Gamla Stan" as you wander through narrow streets. You will see the seven hundred year old cathedral of Stockholm, seat of the archbishop, during your stroll through Old Town and get a chance to see Stortorget, where the Stockholm Blood Bath took place.
