History - The oldest record of Stockholm
dates back to1252, in the form of two letters. Soon
after Stockholm had become the largest city in Sweden
and an industrial center exporting copper and iron
to the rest of Europe, and making wonderful profits.
Several of the buildings that stood as strongholds
during the establishment of Stockholm are still standing
in the city today, as historical landmarks.
In 1634 Stockholm was named the Capital of
Sweden, after a period of famine and a great
decrease in population the country bounced back in
the 18th century and began to become the town it is
today the arts flourished, and the city was rebuilt
in the style it remains in today.
Since then Stockholm has continued
to grow and continued to become more of a cultural
center, and a wonderful tourist destination.
