Water everywhere you look and bars, boutiques and museums to match it - few cities in Europe leave such a strong impression upon visitors like Stockholm does. In Sweden's capital, everything is really worth seeing: The Castle, the large number of museums, and of course, Östermalm. Especially popular is the old town Gamla Stan. Literally translated this means "old town square". Particularly impressive: the changing of the guard at the castle with lots of music and a great show.
A particularly culturally rich museum is the Moderna Museet. In the exhibitions there one can see the works of great artists such as Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. A nice balance to the paintings in the upper museum is the photo museum in the lower basement. Pictures since the beginning of photography and vintage cameras bring visitors close to the world of photos from times without pixels and camera phones. Photographs showing the world as it is - away from Photoshop and other graphics programs.
A visit to the Swedish National Museum can not be missed out on a guided tour.. This museum contains the largest collection of art in the country - paintings, sculptures and drawings by international and national artists are exhibited here. If you would define an artistic focus of the exhibitions, that would be the Swedish painting of the 18th and 19th Century. And finally, Östermalm is the most impressive district of Stockholm. Besides some Museeun the visitors can come to admire the Esplanaden, alleys and beautiful old buildings.
