Gamlastan panorama 01 res 2000 by Grishasergei, on Flickr

Stockholm is a beautiful Scandinavian city situated on the picturesque islands and penninsulas between the lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea. The inner city of Stockholm consists of 14 islands connected by 52 bridges and the municipality comprises 216 square kilometers out of which roughly 13 percent is made up of water. 55 percent of all land consists of green parks or forests. The City features 160 kilometers of shoreline and quays and there are 30 000 islands and islets in Stockholms archipelago.
The Swedish capital city is the cultural, economical and political center of Sweden as well as an important global city, and the main centre for corporate headquarters in the Nordic region.

A view over Gamla stan island which is the old town of Stockholm, Sweden. Gamla stan consists primarily of the island Stadsholmen. The surrounding islets Riddarholmen, Helgeandsholmen, and Strömsborg are officially part of, but not colloquially included in, Gamla stan. The word "stan" is simply a contraction of the word "staden" ("sta'n"), meaning "the town." The town dates back to the 13th century, and consists of medieval alleyways, cobbled streets, and archaic architecture. North German architecture has had a strong influence in the Old Town's construction:

Stureplan is a high-end public square in central Stockholm, between Norrmalm and Östermalm. The square connects the major streets Kungsgatan, Birger Jarlsgatan and Sturegatan. The buildings around the square house offices of banks and other financial institutions, as well as several corporate headquarters.
Some of the country's most famous and expensive restaurants and bars are located in the area around Stureplan. Some examples are Sturehof, Spy Bar, Riche, Laroy, Hell's Kitchen, East and Sturecompagniet. Exclusive fashion houses with shops in the area include Versace, Hugo Boss, Gucci, and LV. Here you also find the Sturegallerian mall and the Scandic Anglais hotel, part of the Scandic Hotels chain.
Stureplan is often referred as the most posh area in the Nordic region.
