  STOCKHOLM - '' The Beauty on Water''
In the central part of Sweden you find many of the tourist attractions of this beautiful country, starting with Stockholm, one of the most fascinating capitals of the world, continuing with the region Dalarna, the soul of the swedish culture.
Picturesque cities, historical centres, castles and rune stones, all of this in a big coctail of nature and culture. Stockholm has many museums and monuments that are worth seeing, you can go on a bus sightseeing, or take one of the sightseeing boats.
During the summer time you can take a swim or go fishing in central Stockholm, and during the night you can go dancing in one of the many night clubs and discotheques around Stureplan. There is a place for everyone.
Stockholm is a city that tells you its story through the narrow, cobblestoned streets in Gamla Stan- the old part of the city, the famous museums and monuments. If you have the possibility, visit the archipelago of Stockholm, with its ca 24.000 islands, this is guaranteed to leave you stunned.
If you visit Stockholm during the winter, you can go iceskating on the frozen lakes of the city.
