Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia
There are many reasons why Stockholm is the natural Capital of Scandinavia. One is that Stockholm is positioned at the heart of the region, and
enjoys the benefits of a world-class transport infrastructure. Another is that Stockholm is the largest city in the largest country in Scandinavia. It is
also where you find the most multinational companies, the largest stock market and, not least, the most visitors. People come to Stockholm for the
food, the design and the music. Stockholm also offers a unique range of galleries and museums, and every year the eyes of the world are on Stockholm
when the Nobel Prizes are awarded. Welcome to Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia.
