IntroductionLying on the eastern coast of Sweden, Stockholm (and Sweden as a whole) enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world. Around half of country’s surface is still covered with forest and lakes (that’s an area larger than the entire British Isles!) whilst its economy and social structure has flourished over recent years.
Stockholm itself is said to be almost schizophrenic in nature. Battling between an image centered around its status as Sweden’s commercial and political center and the other being one of a provisional heartland of open spaces and expanses of water. The combination, however, makes it a fascinating place to visit.
