In The Wonderful Journey of Nils Holgersson Through Sweden at one time Selma Lagerlof sends her small character on a flight with a flock of geese to the east across the Melaren Lake. Soon a growing agitation began to be noticed under them: the banks already seemed increasingly more thickly built. Cutters, barges, fishermen's boats and white ships - all of them were heading east to one goal. And the timid small gray duck Dunfin immediately recognized it: the city floating on water... Today the Swedish capital is a world metropolis, considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Spreading impressively on 14 islands, Stockholm, called the Northern Venice, has fused in an unusual manner with the water in specific harmony, with the environment, moreover having preserved in an amazingly comprehensive way its own history, going back more than 750 years. In a terse and accessible way Ingrid Bohn, a specialist in the history of the Scandinavian countries, presents the most essential points in the development and advancement of the city from its beginnings in the 13th century to date.
