    The first stop on your Sweden holiday should be Stockholm the capital and largest city of Sweden.

Stockholm boasts stunning architecture, museums for the more cultured traveller and an out of this world nightlife for the more adventurous of us.

    For an amazing view of the city make some time to take your Auto Europe car hire a short distance east of the city centre to Kaknastornet which is a TV tower built in the 1960's and was the tallest building in Scandinavia for many years. From the towers indoor and outdoor observation deck you will get a city of the city that many won't ever believe.

    Before leaving Stockholm, make sure to stop in at one of the city's most popular attractions, the Vasa Museum. The maritime museum is located on the island of Djurgården and houses the Vasa a warship. The ship is from 1628 and sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. If you are looking for more museum's you cannot pass up to the opportunity to visit the Swedish Museum of Natural history, the museum displays many of the flora and fauna that is so popular in the region.

    Once you have done everything there is to do in Stockholm, head to Gothenburg the capital of West Sweden. Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden after Stockholm and is a must see. Gothenburg is home to many university students due to having both the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology located in the city walls. The city hosts the annual Gothenburg Film Festival in January every year, this makes it a must do for any travelling film buffs.
