    Is Stockholm Europe's Most Beautiful City?

    Is Stockholm Europe's Most Beautiful City?

    Is it possible to award one single European city as the most beautiful of them all? There are the timeless classics, such as Paris and Venice. There’s the quiet loveliness of Bruges, Belgium and Port, Portugal. Then there are the marvelous gems like Budapest and Salzburg—and that’s only brushing the surface of all the continent has to offer.

    But if we were to list off every single European city there is, we’re confident that Stockholm, Sweden would certainly rank at the top in terms of sheer beauty.

    One of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities, Stockholm is set on fourteen islands, gracefully looking out to the Baltic Sea. The Old Town (Gamla Stan) is characterized by winding cobblestone streets and light yellow buildings while new neighborhoods boast chic bars and stylish Swedes. Add to that the boats, bikes, and public green spaces, and the result is not only a gorgeous city, but an extremely livable one as well.

    There is a cost of living in a place of such beauty, and prices in Stockholm are enough to make any jaw drop. But if you can forget about your budget for at least a few days, you’ll be amply rewarded with a trip to the magical capital of Sweden.

    They say a photo is worth a thousand words, so rather than continue to describe the beauty of Stockholm with words, let’s have a glance with pictures:
