We visited Stockholm on our northern way from Russia to Germany. It has turned out a little bit more long way on a distance. But the opportunity to get acquainted with three northern capitals - Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen - has weighed down and we have chosen this very way.
We have not regretted about the choice. All three capitals are worthy more careful studying. We had only several hours for excursion in Helsinki and Copenhagen and the whole excursion day in Stockholm. It was possible to get acquainted with its sights very superficially. However now we know what for it is necessary to return there once again.
Stockholm is located on 14 large islands laying between Saksjon - a gulf of the Baltic sea and the Malaren lake. All the main sights of the city are concentrated on coasts of these islands.
The old central part of the city has a name of Gamla Stan and occupies three large islands. Stadholmen island possesses the Royal palace and ancient inhabited quarters. Riddarholmen island can be proud of the church of Riddarholmskyrkan where the Swedish monarches were buried almost all. The parliament of Sweden and government are located on Helgeandsholmen island.
The central islands incorporate with bridges to the northern part of the city - Norrmalm. There is business area. In 15 minutes of walking from the center, there is a main railway complex T-Centralen. Main shops of the city also are located in Norrmalm.
The big island - Kungsholmen is located to the West from Norrmalm. On itswestern part there is a well known Town hall. "An East area" - Estermalm, expensive and quiet area of bourgeoisie lays to the east of Norrmalm.
The unique bridge connects Strandvagen quay with Djurgarden - a museum island. There are a well-known museum on open-air Skansen, a museum of the sunk ship "Vasa", a Northern museum, a park of "Unibaken" with heroes of Astrid Lindgren. On the contrary of Djurgarden there is one more museum island - Skeppsholmen where a set of museums are open, including museums of architecture and the modern art.
The southern part of the city - Sodermalm. This place of bohemia and student's concourses is named "a reserve" of vanguard bars, clubs, restaurants.
