Stockholm, Sweden

 
Nynashamn, your gateway port to Stockholm, affords a commanding view of the capital of Sweden, and allows you to take in at once the city's lush parks, majestic skyline of towers and copper domes, and beautiful panoramas.

Stockholm is a city of 14 islands linked by boats and graceful bridges, and is considered the Venice of the North. It is as famous for its unique landscape, a rich mix of architecture, waterways and greenery, as it is for being the home of the Nobel Prize.


A PICTURESQUE OLD TOWN
Explore the city's heart, the Gamla Stan, or Old Town, built on a single island. Follow its winding cobblestone streets and crooked alleys amidst charming buildings, some dating from the 16th century. The area's many intimate shops, restaurants, and art galleries set a wonderful mood.

PRIZE-WORTHY LANDMARKS
The old Royal Palace, central to Old Town, is an impressive baroque structure of over 600 rooms and contains several museums which display the crown jewels, the royal carriages, and King Gustav III's collection of antiques. The 17th century Drottningholm Palace, now the principal residence of the royal family, was built to resemble a seaside Versailles. Equally beautiful is the City Hall, home of the civic government. The interior is honeycombed with elegant halls, including the Golden Hall with its stunning mosaics, and the Blue Hall, where the Nobel banquets are held.

A SUNKEN TREASURE
Get a rare time capsule of treasures from another age as you tour the main feature of the Vasa Museum, the warship Vasa, designed by Gustavus II to be the most powerful ship of its day. Although it sank on its maiden voyage in 1628, the harbor mud kept it amazingly well preserved, and in 1956 it was raised nearly intact using the most modern technology. A visit to the Vasa is an unforgettable event!
