Cruises from Stockholm depart in the summer.
Spanning numerous islands in the Baltic Sea, Stockholm boasts a bevy of attractions within its waterfront setting. Wander the Old Town district, known as Gamla Stan, to see Stockholm Cathedral, the changing of the guard ceremony at the Royal Palace and the Vasa Museum, home to the world's only preserved 17th-century warship. Tours of City Hall reveal where Nobel Prizes are awarded, and a nearby museum delves into the history of this accolade and the laureates who have claimed it. Escape into nature with a cruise down the Djurgarden canal, or spot sea eagles on a kayaking exploration. The region is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Birka, an archeological outpost once ruled by Vikings; the Woodland Cemetery, with its remarkable landscape architecture; and Drottningholm Palace, the private residence of the country's royal family.
