It has it all – everything is within walking distance, it has a huge range of exciting shops, boutiques, department stores and shopping centres in an attractively laid out city, most of it pedestrian walkway – so no smelly car fumes to worry about.

Scandimania: why we fall for Swedish style
We've fallen head over heels for Swedish fashion writes Karen Dacre at The Evening Standard.
Take a trip to Stockholm and you'll immediately understand its appeal. While the streets of London offer a dynamic blend of street style, in Sweden an understated, utilitarian approach has long dominated. It is this effortless stance on elegance that London's style-savvy are now besotted with. Find out more
