Stockholm

With close to a million inhabitants, Stockholm is the largest Nordic city, its population continuing to grow at a double-digit rate every decade. The old town (Gamla stan) is a meticulously preserved reminder of Sweden's economic power throughout the era of Scandinavian exploration and naval commerce. Every year, the brightest minds in the sciences and literature worldwide receive the Nobel Prize, awarded by the Royal Institute of Technology.
