The name Stockholm (stock - tree trunk, pile, holm - small island) is usually translated as "Log island". The city is an example of Scandinavian comfort, one of the most beautiful cities on the shores of the Baltic Sea and a major European port. It is worth visiting it if only for the sake of a walk through the Gamla Stan - "Old Town" area, located on three islands, to which the name Stockholm originally belonged, which, with the expansion of the city, spread to other districts. In 1998, Stockholm was declared the European Capital of Culture.
