Stockholm city sits on 14 islands that are connected by 57 bridges. The city is sometimes referred to as ‘Venice of the North’, thanks to its beautiful buildings and exquisite architecture, abundant open water and numerous parks and actually with the world’s first national city park right in the heart of the city. The first time the name Stockholm appears on record is already in 1252.

Stockholm landmarks are among many: the City hall where the Nobel Prize is held, the fabulous Abba museum, and of course the Royal Palace in the heart of Old Town (Gamla Stan). The city’s subway is also known as the world’s longest art gallery, with the majority of its stations being adorned with paintings, sculptures and mosaics.

The total absence of heavy industry makes Stockholm one of the world’s cleanest metropolises and the water is so clean you can drink it, swim in it, and even fish in it. Happy Hour in Sweden is called “After Work” and on a hot summer day, you will see citizens sitting on the numerous floating cafés and restaurants and perhaps even barhopping by canoe or boat. During the second half of June, it barely ever gets dark in Stockholm for several weeks due to the midnight sun. 

Swedes are very internationally minded and outside of Silicon Valley, Stockholm has the highest number of unicorn companies and global companies per capita. We are proud to have companies such as Spotify, H&M, Electrolux, Ericsson, and many others headquartered in Stockholm. We strive to create inclusive, innovative, and collaborative companies that truly do make a difference!
