About City

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. The first part of the name “stock” means “log” in Swedish and “fortification” in Greek and second part of the name “holm” means “islet” though Stockholm is often known as “World’s Biggest Small Town”. Stockholm lies on a number of islands and peninsulas. The city centre is nearly situated on the water. Stockholm is one of the cleanest capitals in the world. This city was Europe's first “green capital”. The city became the venue for the award of the first noble prizes in the year 1901. The city’s subway is also known as the world’s longest art gallery with the majority of its stations being decorated with paintings, sculptures and mosaics. The first ice hotel of the world was built near the village of Jukkasjärvi, Sweden.

Stockholm is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden. By the second half of the 19th century, Stockholm had regained its leading economic role. New industries emerged, and Stockholm was transformed into an important trade and service centre as well as a key gateway point within Sweden. The population also grew dramatically during this time, mainly through immigration. At the end of the 19th century, less than 40% of the residents were Stockholm-born. Settlement began to expand outside the city limits.

Stockholm became a modern, technologically advanced, and ethnically diverse city in the latter half of the 20th century. Many historical buildings were torn down during the modernist era, including substantial parts of the historical district of Klara, and replaced with modern architecture. Throughout the century, many industries shifted away from work-intensive activities into more high-tech and service industry areas. Currently, Stockholm's metropolitan area is one of the fastest-growing regions in Europe, and its population is expected to number 2.5 million by 2024. As a result of this massive population growth, it has been proposed to build densely-packed high-rise building in the city centre connected by high-rise walkways.
