STOCKHOLM HISTORY - HISTORY OF STOCKHOLM SWEDEN

Stockholm HistoryStockholm 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.
