Stockholm is generally referred to as Beauty on Water, or the Venice of the North which is understandable, as the city is built upon 14 islands. It is surrounded by Lake Mälaren, and by the Baltic Sea. The mixture of old and new, greenery and water, picturesque narrow streets and engaging modern broad ones provides an attractiveness you rarely find elsewhere.
Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is Europe's sixth largest international airport, the main aviation hub in both Sweden and the Nordic countries. It expects long-haul passenger and cargo traffic to continue
growing and is preparing to expand services to airlines and passengers.
