The heartland of Sweden is a perfect place to visit due to its major city, Stockholm, but also because of the lakes and inlets, caves and mines, and every other facet of the country's generous natural beauty.
Stockholm, which is spread across 14 islands, sits at the meeting point between Lake Malaren and the Baltic Sea. Like many major European cities, it has an 'Old Town' and a more modern district. The ancient region – Stockholm is over seven centuries old – has cobbled streets and walking malls downtown with extensive shops and boutiques. The three churches of the Old Town are Storkyrkan, Riddarholm and the German Church, and all are ornate and beautiful. There are also several buildings of royal heritage near the harbor such as the Royal Palace, State Apartments, Hall of State and much more. Meanwhile, when you're ready to take your palate on an exotic tour, there are a number of top-shelf restaurants around the archipelago.
For a different twist, visit Falun to see the Great Copper Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage site with plenty of hands-on opportunities and a chance to discover the dark depths of Sweden's energy source. Another great place to visit in Central Sweden is Orebro, a city with impressive castles, museums and churches, a royal past, and a French flavor.
