Destination

Central Sweden

Central Sweden is home to capital city Stockholm, the provinces of Dalarna and Värmland, as well as the beautiful city of Uppsala.
What to see and do

Stockholm is a must, but do put the medieval city of Uppsala and challenger for ‘prettiest town anywhere’ Sigtuna on your itinerary. Further north, in Dalarna province, you can start ticking off UNESCO World Heritage Sites at the Great Copper Mine in Falun.
