Stockholm is a unique capital in many ways. There is a centuries-old history, a lot of sights, and a special geographical position - 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. However, such a specific location will not be an obstacle for sightseeing excursions - almost all the main sights can be reached on foot. The most important thing is to plan the excursion route in advance because there are quite a lot of places that are worth seeing in Stockholm. You can do it yourself, or you can trust a English-speaking guide. The main sights of the capital include:
- Royal Palace;
- Gamla stan;
- Vadstena abbey;

In addition to excursions, the capital offers excellent options for a beach holiday. Stockholm has several beaches and extensive park areas where both tourists and local people like to relax. Do not forget about shopping and Scandinavian cuisine.
