    The City of Stockholm's service is built on the belief that the individual should have an opportunity to lead an independent life. For example, disabled have a guide service, so that they too can have access to the cultural and political arena. And with the elderly care, the aim is that old people should be able to live at home for as long as possible.
    The municipal care embraces a lot of the citizens' everyday life. There are approximately 650 professions represented in the organisation of the City of Stockholm, ranging from engineers to home-helpers and from chefs to archivists and architects.

    If you ask someone who has visited Stockholm the first word they would probably use to describe it is “beautiful” and that it is. Stockholm is a major international city with great shopping, quality eateries in abundance, fabulous standard hotels, an internationally renowned club and music scene and a vibrant cultural life. Where Stockholm comes into its own however is its sheer, natural beauty.

    Stockholm, as a city, is over 700 years old and spreads across 14 islands as it faces proudly out to the Baltic Sea. You can get to just about all of Stockholm¢s many wondrous sites on foot, which is the perfect way to see the city. You can also take a boat trip that will give you a different facet of Scandinavia¢s largest and probably most beautiful city.

    To qualify the natural “beauty” of Stockholm, try a summer morning stroll in Djurgården, a dip in Lake Mälaren from Norrmälarstrand, or a quiet moment to yourself in Hagaparken. We think you¢ll know what we mean.

    Stockholm, built on 14 islands is situated where Lake Mälaren opens up into the Baltic Sea. 30% of the central Stockholm area consists of water which explains why Stockholm is often called the “Venice of the North”.

    Stockholm is also a very green city; more than 40 % of the land owned by the City is made up of parks and open spaces.
