Stockholm The northern European country of Sweden is full of stunning natural but also architectural and cultural beauties and excellent gastronomic delights. The Kingdom of Sweden covers about 450 thousand square kilometers in northern Europe. It borders Norway to the west, Finland to the northeast, and is connected to Denmark by the Oresund Bridge. It has a sea border with Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, and Russia. Its territory stretches across the eastern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula and is most commonly divided into three regions: northern Norrland, central Svealand, and southern Gotaland. Stockholm   The Swedish population has about 9 million inhabitants and consists of about sixty different peoples. The largest part of the population - about 90 percent - are Swedes. The country has developed industry, living standards are extremely high, and incomes are among the highest in Europe. It is therefore not surprising that Sweden is considered one of the most developed European countries. Stockholm   The capital - Stockholm - is located on the east coast of Sweden along the Baltic Sea, and it includes about a hundred islands. This city is also an important intellectual center that brings together the Royal Academy of Sciences, the Carolingian Institute, and the Swedish Academy, which selects Nobel Prize winners in the fields of physics, chemistry, economics, medicine, and literature. Explore Stockholm and its cultural sights. Be sure to visit the historic center of the Gamla apartment on the island of Stadsholmen, which boasts its Gothic architecture. There are also a number of museums and galleries at your disposal, as well as the unavoidable tourist attraction - Ericsson Globe Arena - the largest round building in the world - where sports and cultural events are held.
