Griffin Segreant STOCKHOLM Bag
Griffin Segreant STOCKHOLM Bag
Stockholm is like no other capital in the world. Built on fourteen islands, it rises gracefully from water so clean that you can go swimming or fishing in the very heart of the city. Its waterfront is alive with boats, from ferries to shuttle you around the city to sailboats and yachts that cruise out into the vast archipelago that stretches into the Baltic. Of course getting around doesn't require a boat--you can walk, bike, drive or take advantage of the city's impeccable mass-transit system. The history of Stockholm dates back to the 13th century, and the best place to discover it is in Gamla Stan, the Old Town. Gamla Stan is famous for its winding, cloistered streets, boutiques, and cozy restaurants, all gathered close by to the Royal Palace. An hour's boat ride brings you to the gardens of Drottningholm Palace, the pastoral residence of Sweden's Royal Family. ------------------- Within the graceful architecture of this historic capital you will discover a cultural life of exceptional vitality and energy. ----------------- Hundreds of restaurants of varying taste and style are found here, as well as innumerable shops and galleries showcasing the works of Stockholm's exceptional arts community. Music in the city ranges over all types, from folk dancing in the parks and summer jazz festivals and classical concerts to Swedish and American pop and rock. In a metropolitan area with well over a million people, you can escape the crowds--to a quiet beach, a lush forest, or even a deserted island if you like--sometimes in as little as half an hour. Or you can join the crowd, perhaps in the park for free aerobics classes. -------------------The earliest mention of Stockholm in writing dates from 1252, when the mines in Bergslagen made it an important site in the iron trade. The first part of the name (stock) means log, while the second (holm) means islet, and refers to the islet Stadsholmen in central Stockholm which for centuries constituted the main part of Stockholm. ------------------------- The city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl in order to protect Sweden from a sea invasion by foreign navies, and to stop the pillage of towns such as Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren. It is also said that the name derives from the spot where a log (stock) pushed into the waters, and following its currents, drifted upon an islet (holm). This location would thus constitute the best location for a harbour for returning ships. -------------------- The strategic and economic importance of the city made Stockholm an important factor in relations between the Danish Kings of the Kalmar Union and the national independence movement in the 15th century. The Danish King Christian II was able to enter the city in 1520. On November 8, 1520, massive executions of opposition figures, called the Stockholm Bloodbath, took place. This massacre set off further uprisings, which eventually led to the break-up of the Kalmar Union. ------------------ With the accession of Gustav Vasa in 1523 and the establishment of a royal power, the population of Stockholm began to grow, reaching ten thousand by 1600. ------------------ The 17th century saw Sweden rise into a major European power, reflected in the development of the city of Stockholm. From 1610 to 1680, the population multiplied sixfold. In 1634, Stockholm became the official capital of the Swedish empire. Trading rules were also created that gave Stockholm an essential monopoly over trade between foreign merchants and other Swedish and Scandinavian territories.
