Welcome to Stockholm!
Stockholm is home to OURWAY Tours…and whoever you are you’ll discover that ‘welcome home’ vibe too. We’re not making any assumptions about what you like or what you are like – simply put, Stockholm is so well-balanced in all areas of lifestyle, culture and it’s geography that it’s easy to fall in love with (and in) Sweden’s inclusive capital.
Like being by the water? Prefer grand green spaces? Or perhaps being surrounded by beautifully modern and handsomely historic architecture is more your thing? Stockholm has it all!
Stockholm’s nickname of ‘Venice of the North’ is no exaggeration – the canals and picturesque waterways are a delight to the eye and ear; the lapping water soundscape complementing the views across the 57 bridges connecting the 14 islands of the city. In warmer months, taking a dip in whatever body of water takes your fancy is possible; from the freshwater of Lake Mälaren to the salty Baltic, you’re sure to discover a place to make a splash.
Whilst the water winds through the city, green nature is in abundance with gorgeous spaces flourishing making up over 30% of the city; most of which being woods and forests. No wonder Stockholm’s beauty and air quality helped it to be awarded the European Green Capital Award in 2010!
With so much green and blue, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re not in a city at all. Yet, Stockholm’s streets are a wonder in themselves. The city has been spared from modern warfare which has produced a clean, well-kept and distinctive city to roam around. Yet its medieval past is visible when you look in the right places (we can show you if you like… it’s kind of part of our job!) whilst diversity and innovation have always lived in Stockholm’s streets.
Founded in the 1200s and once a key trading hub, Stockholm has been shaped and influenced by fashionable trends and in itself has been a trend-setter in design, proudly embracing all types of artists. It also inspires in its sense of industry, with Stockholm being a thriving business centre; from start-ups to scale-ups all the way through to established international companies covering many different sectors (the Swedes are not just about affordable furniture!)
As we said, whoever you are you’ll find a home in Stockholm – and we can’t wait to give you the ‘house tour’.
