Port of Stockholm
Stockholm's beauty is legendary. A modern capital city with a flourishing business life, it has successfully retained its history and natural splendour. Founded in the 13th century, the narrow streets and medieval buildings of the Old Town sit comfortably close to the modern harbour and port facilities, office blocks, hotels, cafés and, of course, cruise ships.
Set across 14 different islands, water accounts for a third of Stockholm's total area and contributes significantly to one of the world's most alluring cityscapes. Its numerous waterways are criss-crossed by 57 bridges, while green parklands seem to be around almost every corner. And during the long summer days, there are countless open-air drinking and dining options for enjoying the magnificent natural setting.
Entering Stockholm is to sail through one of the most unique natural scenarios in the world - the archipelago. Made up of over 24,000 small islands no other place has this unique beauty. Stockholm's popularity as a cruise port has grown significantly in recent years.
Stockholm is a shopper's paradise. World famous for its design and crystal, you'll find a whole lot more from exclusive fashion stores filled with the latest trends, to handicrafts and souvenirs.
