Stockholm is the largest and the capital city of Sweden, located at the junction of Lake Mälar and Salt Bay, opposite the Gulf of Finland. The city is made up of several islands and portions of the mainland of Södermanland and Uppland. Thanks to its geographical location, Stockholm is considered among the most beautiful cities in the world. The city's strategic location on the shores of the Baltic sea means that tourists enjoy breathtaking summer evenings and the winter charm of the snow-fringed skylines and frozen lakes. Hopping from one island to the next requires an intricate public transportation system. Fortunately, the city enjoys a simplified transit system that accommodates all types of visitors. Visitors can get in and around the city by underground commuter trains, buses, boats and trams. Stockholm is also bike-friendly with hundreds of bike lanes that allow for safe rides away from the congested areas.
