Send a Parcel to Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm is a beautiful city and one of the nicest places in the world to live. Nearly all its economy is based around services and there is virtually no manufacturing business. Hence the city has a very green environment and has helped this with a good public transport network of electric trains and busses and has a major congestion charge system in the centre of the city which stops a great deal of road transport.
The city like many major cities owes its success to its position across 14 islands in Lake Malaren at the start of the Stockholm Archipelago. Stockholm is on the mid-east side of Sweden and became a major trading port that dominated the Baltic Sea because of its prime position.
Stockholm has been formed since around 1250 AD although it may be 60 years earlier. It grew with the rise of the Viking and Norse and the nation gradually became very powerful and its best days were in the 17th Century. A major plague in 1710 killed some 20,000 people which were 36% of the population and it lost its prime position in the Baltic States.
The architecture is a mixture of old and new, but the old town of Gamla Stan was built on the central island and has retained its structure intact and is a great place to visit. There are many excellent museums to visit and the old wooden warship Vasa, which was rescued from Stockholm harbour intact because of the low sea temperatures and has been restored excellently.
