Stockholm

2 of 15

What PPS Says: As a city of islands, the
waterfront here really is the heart of town and has quietly adapted over time
as Stockholm evolves, providing many new and different ways for people to use
it.

What We Like: As in Venice, water surrounds and defines Stockholm. When crossing bridges or walking along canals, you’re served with striking views
of the city’s picturesque neighborhoods and diverse architecture that are
reflected, lit, and framed by water. Sprawled across 14 islands, the city was
named one of the EU’s two Green Cities for 2009, and no wonder: Stockholm has set aside 40 percent of its land, much of it on the waterfront, for
well-used green spaces and parks.
