Sweden’s capital and largest city, Stockholm is also its cultural and economic hub. Stockholm is located on an island in the Baltic Sea between Salt Bay (Saltsjön) and Lake Mälar (Mälaren), opposite the Gulf of Finland. Uppland and Södermanland are only two of the several mainland areas included in this metropolitan area. Because of its location as a global metropolis, Stockholm is often praised as a visual feast.
Birger Jarl, the Swedish king at the time, laid the groundwork for much of what would become Stockholm in 1252, the year it was officially recognized as a city. Its rapid growth can be attributed in large part to a trade agreement with Lübeck, Germany. In exchange for signing this pact, Lübeck merchants were allowed to set up shop in Sweden duty-free. The city officially became Stockholm, Sweden’s capital, in 1436. Stockholm was liberated from Danish dominance by Gustav I Vasa in 1523, after years of conflict between the Swedes and the Danes.Things to do in Stockholm during Sweden Tour Packages.
