Stockholm, officially known as Scandinavia's and Sweden's capital, offers an array of holiday apartment choices for those looking to get off the beaten tourist path in exchange for something more authentic. Stockholm has come a long way from the ABBA days, and is a cornucopia of different cultures, owing to the fact that 16 percent of its inhabitants are immigrants.
The city's skyline is considered as one of the most beautiful in the world, and the city is known as a place for edgy fashion, design and culture. Stockholm is surrounded by an archipelago of more than 24,000 rocky islands, and the blue waters that are part of the city are perfectly juxtaposed with the terracotta colored buildings of a time gone by - a family holiday in Stockholm
is sure to be a success.
