Dubbed "the Venice of the North" for its many waterways, Stockholm offers the best of both worlds -- a booming metropolis steeped in culture and history, without the dingy feel of some of the other big cities in Europe. The city has so much to do for every kind of visitor, and these are just a few our favorites! A third of Stockholm is covered in water. Set on Lake Malaren, Stockholm is made up of 14 islands, interconnected by a system of bridges and tunnels. (The city's subway and ferry system makes it easy to island-hop.) What better way to really experience the city than to explore by boat!
