Stockholm

Located on the Baltic Sea, the Swedish capital is built on several islands. Running in Stockholm means enjoying the urban planning of a modern and typical city, which has nevertheless retained foreign influences, especially baroque.

The omnipresence of water, which makes up 30% of Stockholm's surface area, has earned it the nickname "Venice of the North", along with Bruges, Amsterdam and St Petersburg. The city is spread over fourteen islands, a tiny part of the immense archipelago of 24,000 islands that surround it. You can start, for example, on the small island of Stadsholmen, where Gamla stan, the old town, was founded in the 13th century. Abandoned until recently, it has become a major tourist attraction since the 2000s, thanks to the charm of its medieval-style architecture mixed with Renaissance buildings. You can walk or run through the various districts, separated by the seawater canals, over which there are no less than 57 bridges. The island of Djurgården is home to the city's main tourist attractions, including the Vasa Museum, dedicated to the Vasa ship that sank in Stockholm harbour on the day it was launched. But also to Blockhusudden, the fortified south-eastern tip of the island. A few bridges away, Södermalm, long considered by the inhabitants as a poor district, is now very lively. Here you will find the Mariatorget square and many churches. In 2014, Vogue magazine named Södermalm one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world!
