Stockholm - the capital of Sweden.
The city is rightly called "the beauty of the water." It is situated on 14 islands connected by bridges with lace and transitions, from which, being between sky and water, you can admire its charming views. Water is, literally, everywhere - accounted for one third of the canals and channels, which makes the capital of Sweden elegance.

In Stockholm, home to 650,000 inhabitants, 1.5 million with the suburbs. The capital of Sweden, active and modern business center - not the largest city. There is no heavy industry.

The town is built in the early Middle Ages on an island, formed as a result of lifting the earth's crust, between the lake Mälaren and the sea. Later, the lake level rose and was higher than in the Baltic Sea, which led to the emergence of strong currents. The ships that came from the Baltic, could not overcome the flow and had to unload the goods on the island, and then the light to reach the lake Mälaren and load new cargo.

In 1252, Birger Jarl, the mighty men, and maintains very close relations with the German cities of the Hanseatic League, Stockholm awarded the status of the city, which has become the unofficial capital and the main customs point. There are so many selilos natives of Germany, that even a law (in force until 1472), under which half of the city magistrates were Germans.

In the 15th century the capital was located within the boundaries of this "old town" - Gamla Stan.

In the 17th century in Stockholm in 1643 officially got all the metropolitan authorities.

Due to the export of iron, he prospered economically, which entailed the construction of solid stone buildings.

In the late 17th century, its population was 45,000 people.

By the mid-19th century with the advent of railroads and steamships became the capital of the largest industrial center, numbering 200,000 inhabitants. With the increasing population of the city expanded - stoilis new homes, hospitals, schools, barracks, squares, streets.

In the early 20th century, there were half a million people Stkgolme. In 1960 - more than a million inhabitants, with most living in the suburbs.

Quarter, which is called the "City" - the main shopping center in Stockholm. Other sections of the city retained its original form, for example, the old town with its narrow cobbled streets and crooked, not changed since the Middle Ages.

Southern Quarter - Södermalm.

To the west is the quarter Ostermalm - one of the most fashionable places in Stockholm.

Several distant from the center of the quarter is Kunkskholmen with its office buildings.

Quarter Djurgården is a green oasis in the city.

Parks and green areas constitute an integral and significant part of the metropolitan landscape. On the streets every day are the royal guards, and the noise of city streets, as if absorbed by water, fused with cries of gulls. In Stockholm, life abounds, but there's no annoying hustle and bustle.

Stkgolm - a city in which to live pleasantly.
