Stockholm is the capital and the largest city of Sweden and constitutes the most populated urban
area in Scandinavia. Stockholm is the most populous city in Sweden, with a population of 871,952
in the municipality (2010), 1.4 million in the urban area (2010), and over 2.1 million in the
6,519 km2 (2,517.00 sq mi) metropolitan area (2010). As of 2010, the Stockholm metropolitan area
is home to approximately 22% of Sweden's population.

Founded no later than c. 1250, possibly as early as 1187, Stockholm has long been one of Sweden's
cultural, media, political, and economic centres. Its strategic location on 14 islands on the coast in
the south-east of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been
historically important. Stockholm has been nominated by GaWC as a global city, with a ranking of
Beta+. In The 2008 Global Cities Index, Stockholm ranked 24th in the world, 10th in Europe, and
first in Scandinavia. Stockholm is known for its beauty, its buildings and architecture, its abundant
clean and open water, and its many parks. It is sometimes referred to as Venice of the North.[9]

monarch as well as the prime minister. Since 1980, the monarch has resided at Drottningholm
Palace in Ekerö Municipality outside of Stockholm and uses the Stockholm Palace as his
workplace and official residence. The government has its seat in Rosenbad and the parliament in
the Parliament House.
