It was built in the late nineteenth century, and today it is both a gorgeous place to stay and a great place simply to visit.

Af Chapman


On the other hand is the af Chapman. This ship was originally launched in 1888, and today remains moored along the coast of Stockholm. It also acts as a youth hostel, and provides a unique experience for anyone staying there.

The Stockholm Archipelago


Stockholm is also home to a huge archipelago on its eastern coast. The beauty of this region has inspired a great many artists throughout history. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to travel between the islands, especially during summer months. Take a cruise ship from place to place, and take in the great views while you travel.
