Modern Stockholm

Address: Stockholm Show map

Address: Stockholm

Walking tour in English. What makes Stockholm the capital of Scandinavia? There is a lot more to Stockholm than medieval history, water and bridges. Today the city is marketed not only for being the capital of Sweden - but as the capital of Scandinavia as well.

It’s a bold statement. We are not saying it is true; rather, we consider what lends strength to making such a declaration in our city’s honor and the thinking behind it.
Walking through the main city center we will stumble across sights that will give us the opportunity to, in a very lighthearted way, touch upon subjects to do with everything from the mix of people that live here, to business,
innovation, shopping, culture and design, nightlife to the environment.
On our Modern Stockholm walk, we will have the chance to see The Concert Hall - where the Nobel Prizes are handed out, Stureplan - where the exclusive shopping and nightlife of Stockholm are to be found, Norrmalmstorg - where the event that coined the phrase ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ took place and Kungsträdgården - one of many green parks in the city and the focal point for numerous events that take place in the city today. All of that and more will be passed along the way.
