The upcoming issue of Mariner Magazine is featuring an article entitled “Stockholm Solved” that explores this enchanting port of call. It’s one of the most popular cities in the Baltic, if not all of Europe. Known for its grand buildings surrounded by a lattice of medieval lanes, the impressive 17th-century warship Vasa, and Skansen, Europe’s oldest open-air museum, Stockholm, Sweden, possesses an incredible amount of charm and character. Did you know you can even take a “rooftop walk” on one of our shore excursions?
