Stockholm Top 10:
Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The beautiful buildings, the greenery, the fresh air and the proximity to the water are distinctive traits of this city. The Royal National City Park, (the first National City Park in the world), is a green space that breathes for the city, and a constant presence in the crush of the city.
With its 750 year history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world-class museums and attractions. Most of the city's attractions can be reached on foot, and there’s a good chance of experiencing a lot of things in a short time. Experience big-city life, the history of civilization and natural scenery, all in the course of the same day.
Visit Stockholm City Hall. Climb the City Hall tower for a fantastic view of Stockholm. Don't miss Gamla Stan, Stockholm's oldest attraction and one of the best preserved medieval city centres in the world. Walk through small winding streets lined with stores full of handicrafts, antiques, art galleries and cafés. The Royal Palace and Stockholm Cathedral are also located in Gamla Stan.
The green island of Djurgården is home to some of the city's most popular attractions. Visit the world-famous warship the Vasa, the world’s oldest open-air museum Skansen, or Astrid Lindgren’s Junibacken. And don't miss the chance to see Stockholm from the water. Naturally a city built on fourteen islands offers marvellous views over the water. There are many different sightseeing tours to choose from. And if fourteen islands aren’t enough, Stockholm offers a wonderful archipelago with 30,000 islands, islet rocks and skerries.
Welcome to Stockholm - the Capital of Scandinavia!
We are a family with Husband & Wife and 2 children, boys 12 & 10 years old. We have built this house by our selfs. We a
Patrick Froom purchased this villa in 2007
I has the perfect location by the water as well only 2 minutes from the local transportations to see Stockholm. If you want to explore the 10.000 islands outside Stockholm, we are then in the middle of it.
”We were lucky enough to rent Villa Värmdö 1 for a period of 7 weeks from the 27/08/11 until 15/10/11 and had a wonderful time.
The location of the house is absolutely stunning being right on the water with a magnificent view of the Archipelago. It is a large, spacious and beautifully appointed home. The house was very warm and very light and was a joy to stay in. It is good for all seasons as the beach is there in the summer and the house is wonderfully warm in cooler weather – we had both! Everything worked and there were no issues and the place really became our home for that period. We would not hesitate to recommend the property for rental and taking this house will add to your enjoyment while in Stockholm and it will be a trouble free rental.
And yes we will rent there again on our next trip to Sweden, if it is available”!

The community with more than 10 000 islands in the Stockholm archipelago!
Värmdö is one of the largest communities in the Stockholm archipelago. It is located east of the capital and reaches the most distant islands in the Baltic Sea. The population of 30 000 inhabitants in the wintertime grows 4 times its size in the summer due to the fact that many people choose to spend their vacation here.
Värmdö has a lot to offer the visitor, a beautiful archipelago landscape and historic sites. The main town is Gustavsberg where you will find the tourist office.
Markets and handicraft:
During the summer months there are several market days on the islands. Here you can buy traditional, archipelago handicraft. There are also small shops and farm stores on the islands. Please contact the tourist office for further information.
Boats and islands:
The best way to see the archipelago is of course by boat. If you want to take a boat trip when visiting Värmdö, the best starting point would be Stavsnäs harbour, the most frequented place for the ferry lines. You can also start from Sollenkroka, Lillsved, Björkvik at Ingarö, or many more of the docks around the community. Turn to the tourist office for further information or call the ferry companies directly. Värmdös docks and harbours are visited by approx. 500 000 private boats every year. You can rent sailing boats, motor boats, rowing boats or canoes, in many places, for example at Bullandö, Sandhamn, Grinda, Björkvik-Ingarö, Norra Stavsudda, Runmarö.

This pass costs 385 SEK (Feb 2003) and is valid for 16 days. With this pass you can travel with all Waxholm boats around the archipelago as much as you would like. You buy the card at the tourist office in Stockholm or Gustavsberg or at the ferry line terminals.

There is also a Pay & play Golf club, Norråva Golfgård (18 holes), where everyone is welcome and no green card is required. Fishing is generally allowed from land in the Baltic Sea.
