The Swedish capital spoils with covetable homewares, hip hotels and high-end restaurants – that just so happen to be kind to the planet.
Its historic centre may be a maze of age-old cobbled lanes and gabled buildings, but the “beauty on the water” – as Stockholm is nicknamed – is one of the most forward-thinking cities in Europe when it comes to sustainability. Not only was it awarded Europe‘s first European Green Capital in 2010, it’s on a mission to become climate positive by 2040. Despite being scattered across 14 islands, it’s also relatively compact, making walking or cycling the best way to get around.
