Stockholm is a so-called Northern Venice located on fourteen islands. However, Swedish capital is often called to be “World Smallest Big City”. It is caused by the close-together design of Stockholm. It is still a bit narrow and thus suitable for walking.

Let’s pick the Royal National park for example – this lovely place is worth walking there for the whole day. A group tour will hardly let you stay there for several hours. This park has a fantastic ambience of relaxation. It is the best place of Stockholm to spend time with family or alone.
