Stockholm

Stockholm

An unbelievably beautiful city, Stockholm is surrounded by clear water and unspoilt country side that stretches right into the heart of the urban area. The city's 750-year history has produced many attractive buildings and plenty of cultural treasures now on display in its many fine museums. The generally accepted founder of Stockholm is the 13th century regent, Birger Jarl, who built a fort to protect Lake Malaren from pirates. Initially important as a trading centre, the city did not become the capital of Sweden until the 16th century. Over the centuries, Stockholm's reputation as a rustic capital has been superseded by its current distinction as a dynamic centre of information technology.

Visby 

Although Visby has a distinctly youthful ambience, especially in the summer when its bars and restaurants are packed with young people, it still has a strong medieval feel, as ruined churches and converted warehouses cluster within the city wall. Capital of the island of Gotland, the city had existed at least since Viking times, but it was in the Middle Ages, when all Baltic trade routes met here, that it rose to economic prominence. Today tourism is an important source of as visitors come to enjoy Gotland's beaches and lively summer atmosphere and to see the ample evidence of Visby's former wealth.
