Stockholm is Sweden’s capital city and the centre of its culture, media and economy.

This beautiful city is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’ as the city is spread across 14 coastal islands connected by 57 bridges at the mouth of Lake Malaren, by the Stockholm archipelago and the Baltic Sea. In 2010 the city was granted the European Green Capital Award in recognition of it being one of the cleanest capitals in the world.

Stockholm was first recognised as a city in 1252, although, it is thought to have been a settlement since the Stone Age.  The city’s oldest section is Gamla stan (Old Town), located on the original small islands of the city’s earliest settlements.

Stockholm is of course the home of Alfred Nobel and a thriving blasting industry which we will be taking full advantage of during the conference programme.

More recently Stockholm has become famous for its software industry, fine seafood and famous summer music festivals.
