Stockholm is the capital and largest city of Sweden, built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The city is a cosmopolitan place with both modern Scandinavian architecture and an abundance of green space. Over 30 % of the city area is made up of waterways and another 30 % is made up of parks and green spaces giving Stockholm perhaps the freshest air of any European capital. Many of the city's attractions can be reached on foot, and there is a good chance of experiencing a lot in a short time.


The official language in Stockholm is Swedish. However, most people in Sweden also speak English. The official language of Euromech Colloquium 592 is English.


Despite its northern locations, Stockholm enjoys fairly mild temperature throughout the year. The average day time and night time temperatures in Stockholm in June are +21°C and +11°C, respectively. As a result of its northerly latitude, the city sees a huge seasonal variation in daylight. In the beginning of June there will be approximately 18 hours of daylight.

Currency, credit cards and exchanging money

Sweden is one of three EU countries that opted to keep their currency and not use the Euro. The currency in Sweden is called Swedish krona (SEK). Credit and debit cards are accepted almost everywhere in Stockholm. Forex is the place to exchange money or buy SEK. They are found throughout the city at several locations, including Arlanda Airport, the Central Railway Station of Stockholm, the department store NK and the Old Town. They have good exchange rates there and do money transfers as well.


Electrical sockets (outlets) in Sweden are one of the two European standard electrical socket types.
