Stockholm Archipelago is the world’s largest archipelago with 30.000 islands and cobs, spanning more than 1,680 square kilometers from the abandoned military battery and beacon at Arholma in the north to the lonely lighthouse at Landsort in the south.
The archipelago has been inhabited since the 5th century. In the early 18th century, the Russians ravaged and burned down almost all buildings. Only a few buildings remain from that time but today, almost 10,000 people live here all year round and Stockholm Archipelago is one of Sweden’s main tourist destinations.
Stockholm’s archipelago is a unique and incredibly beautiful place to experience.
