Stockholm is a unique capital in many ways. It is one of Europe’s largest and best preserved medieval city centers, surrounded by beautiful parks, architecture, diverse cultural life, shopping, museums and an international cuisine. Stockholm is the largest city of the Nordic countries and is sometimes referred to as the capital of Scandinavia.
Most Swedes speak English and are receptive to international visitors. In general, the country offers a welcoming, multicultural, open and safe society. As per a study conducted in 2015, Stockholm was ranked number four in the world’s Safe Cities Index list.

Although Stockholm has a busy cosmopolitan life, the city is built on islands and nearly everywhere you go you are met by stunning waterfront views, including at the Stockholm University campus, which is part of the Royal National City Park.
