General Information about Stockholm

By | Jan 2, 2009

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is the largest and of course, the most populated city of the country. It is situated on 14 islands, making it a very beautiful archipelago that attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each and every year.

Basic Information
County Stockholm
Province Stockholm
Urban Area 377.30 km²
Population (Dec – 2008) 807,301
Standard Time Zone UTC/GMT +1 Hour
International Dialing Code + 46 (Sweden) – 8 (Area code)

Stockholm City is not famous only for its beauty, but also for its buildings, parks and water. While visiting Stockholm in the middle of summer is always the best option, but you may not ignore it in the winters, because it has its own fascination and attraction.

The word Stockholm is a combination of two words; stock (which means log or fortification) and holm (which means islet). Basically, this naming is due to the strategic location of Stockholm at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, making it a collection of islands situated on the lake.

The history of Stockholm goes back to the 13th century, when the iron trade began from the mines of Bergslagen (a distinct mining district in the north of the Lake Mälaren) to the other parts of the region. Anyway, at that time the name of Stockholm was mentioned for the first time in writing dates.

The core of Stockholm is the current Old Town (Gamla Stan) that is located on the central island next to Helgeandsholmen (a small island in central Stockholm). This part of the city was built between 1300 and 1500 and is now officially called The Town between the Bridges. Gamla Stan is known for its historical buildings and has become a tourist attraction since 1980s where you can see the medieval, Renaissance architecture and also other later additions that have been valued by later generations.

In fact, Stockholm is a cosmopolitan city where you can see all kinds of nationalities with different backgrounds and various cultures. This fact is more obvious especially when you stop by some outer suburbs such as Tensta, Fittja, Husby, Rinkeby, Kista, Rågsved and Södertälje that have high percentages of immigrants or second generation immigrants.

Apart from visiting archipelago islands which is highly recommended, there are some other special places in Stockholm which you don´t want to miss. Museums, Theaters, Parks, Old Town, Churches, City Hall, Amusement Park, Malls and Antique Stores are just a few examples. We will cover each of them in the next articles.

Stockholm is a must-see destination whether you come from other cities of Sweden or even other countries in the world. Just, don´t miss out an opportunity to visit this beautiful city either in summer or winter!

Wish You the Best!
