The Swedish capital, Stockholm
, consists of 14 islands of the Baltic Sea with a wide archipelago and over 50 bridges linked. Nikolaikirche from the 13th century, the Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum are located among the cobblestone roads and ocher-colored buildings of the Gamla Stan (old town) with numerous exhibits related to the Nobel Prize. Ferries and hiking boats carry travelers to farther islands.
Sweden’s capital is a cosmopolitan town with a tangled old town, trendy young quarters, and a lively city center. Spread over 14 Lake Mälaren islands, the very atmosphere in Stockholm allows you to row and see where you're going to finish. In the center there are about 50 bridges, and ferries are a fun route. Stockholm is well ahead of the curve in fashion, architecture and music, and many of the greatest shopping and going spots on Södermalm Island in the south of the centre. The lion's share of museums and family days is in Djurgården, where the town is for rest, culture and fun. It is a forest island.

Coach Charter Germany puts forward suggestions of the top 10 places for your itinerary in Stockholm as follows:
1. ABBA: The Museum
Whatever your view of the biggest pop case in Sweden
, their cultural influence won't go anywhere. More than three decades after they split their music still crops up in movies , TV shows and of course their record-breaking musical Mamma Mia. The museum is brimming with ABBA memorabilia and clever touches that fans would be crazy about. One is Benny Andersson's piano, which is remotely linked to the piano in his house and plays whatever he plays at home.
2. Vasa Museum
An impressive relic of the reign of King Gustavus Adolphus of the 17th century was regenerated in this museum on the west coast of Djurgården. The Vasa was a 64-gun warship on his first voyage in 1628. It remained deep until 1961, when it was raised to the surface, and was slowly and painstakingly repaired. The ship has almost all its original material and is still the only ship of its size from the 17th century. And the ship was carrying a payload of things to tell us how it was going to sail on the Vasa.
3. Gröna Lund
Djurgården is also the location of Sweden 's oldest amusement park, and while Gröna Lund was first opened in 1883, it is still very up to date. New roller coasters are launched every few years, like the state-of-the-art "Insane" in which you'll spend half a trip upside down. Another, "Eclipse" is a swing trip more than 120 meters in height. Away from the white-knuckle rides, the little ones will have their lives in tea cups, carousels, bumper cars and a break through fun houses.
Before or after a ride to Fotografista, the mossy crosses the wood and the cobblestone path above the northern coast of Södermalm. In a city full of scenic views, this may be the finest of them all: you'll get your best shots of the City Hall and Gamla Stan on this 500-metre-long trail, and the sunrise and sunset lights are dreamy. Over Lake Mälaren, you'll see the big ships hovering in view and the smaller launches floating back and forth. There's also an old-fashioned feeling about this suburban neighborhood.
5. The Medieval Museum
In the 1970s, the construction of underground car parks took place on some of Stockholm's medieval town walls. It is located under the 55-metre-long Norrbro Bridge and is now one of the highlights of the city's medieval museum. The history of the town can be traced back to its foundation in the 13th and 15th centuries at the end of the Middle Ages. Children can wear armor while other parts of old Stockholm that have come to light in the dig are part of their fun, as is the case with a warship of the 16th century.
A required stop in Gamla Stan is the oldest square in town at the highest point of the island. Stockholm 's expansion into the High Middle Ages started at this very stage, and you can be sure that Stortorget had seen some drama in his day. One of them was the Stockholm Bloodbath of 1520, when up to 90 people were executed in the square by Danish forces. The cannonball in the wall at the corner where Skomakargatan joins the square is said to go back to this period. Stortorget 's beauty is in its gabled houses.
7. Royal Palace
Stockholm's Royal Palace has more than 600 rooms and is home to Europe's largest palaces. There are five museums in this complex, many from the 18th century, which is not simply a historic antique. The king of Sweden is still residing here, most royal functions and receptions occur in the palace and all the various royal family departments work in this most beautiful setting. The reception quarters, the Royal Apartments, the Rikssalen (State Hall) and the Ordenssalarna (Halls of the Chavry Orders) all feature a brief download. Of the five museums, the treasure is unsurprisingly luxurious and the ancient Greek and Roman sculptures of Gustav III's Antiquities Museum were purchased by the king during a trip to Italy
8. Drottningholm Palace
One of Sweden 's three World Heritage Sites is situated in the western suburbs of Stockholm. Drottningholm is in French style and was conceived in the 17th century. Refinements were made over the next several hundred years when each successive king left his own mark on the palace. There are opulent halls from the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s, but one of the impressive information is the Palace Theater, which dates back to the 1700s and continues to be staged until today, unchanged.
We've already taken a ride to the scenery and visited Fotografiska, but that's just the tip of the iceberg on this island south of the centre. Södermalm, where Greta Garbo grew up, has a few ultra-cool neighbourhoods with cute shops and interesting places to go out. Try SoFo (south of Folkungagatan) for one-of-a-kind designer boutiques, antique shops and trendy restaurants and cafes. Nytorget Square here is a fun night out in the summer. The same goes for Mosebacke, which had a bohemian reputation for as long as anyone can remember, and is just a nice night out in the summer.
10. Canal Trip
So much of Stockholm 's beauty lies in its rivers that you'd be discouraged from seeing the city out of the sea. You might also claim it's the first thing to do in the region, as you get your bearings and see the areas you'd like to explore further later on. A favorite trip is to travel east on the Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen, a canal on the side of Djurgården. This was dug during the reign of Charles XIV in 1825. On the way out there are lush views of palaces and parks, and when you go back, you'll see the city in all its glory. You might also take a bridge, which takes about two hours if you want to dive a little deeper.
