Nynashamn

White Sail Boats

Overlooking the sea, the joyful town of Nynäshamn, a destination for lovers of sailing, is one of the stops of a Northern Europe MSC cruise.

It is located about 60km from Stockholm. During the 1912 Olympics, hosted by the Swedish capital, sailing competitions were held in the waters off this town, which was easily reached by train. Today, it is also a destination of ferries coming from Poland, Latvia and Gotland Island, the capital of which, Nisby, is the other stop of the MSC cruise to Sweden. An excursion will take you to Stockholm to visit its Royal Palace, an extraordinary example of Baroque architecture and the official residence of the Swedish royal family, whom, however, actually reside in Drottningholm Castle, a private building. A must-see stop is the Skansen, the first open-air museum in the world.

Here you can admire all of Sweden in miniature, with 160 dwellings from different periods including Lapland villages. A trip to Stockholm has great surprises in store, such as the unbelievable ice bar. Made entirely from ice, including tables and chairs, it was constructed in 2002 using ice imported from the Torne River, in northern Sweden. The temperature inside the locale is obviously below zero so that the ice does not melt. For this reason, the staff supplies customers with warm capes.

Even modern literature is a great protagonist of the capital: you can participate in the Millennium Tour, dedicated to the trilogy of the same name written by Stieg Larsson, the writer and journalist who passed away in 2004 after successfully creating a literary phenomenon turned big-screen thriller; or visit the home of Pippi Longstocking, the lovable girl brought to life by the pen of Astrid Lindgren, who has become the symbol of the city.

Sweden

Luxuriant woods and boundless spaces
Luxuriant woods and boundless spaces

A holiday to Sweden will show you principally a land of forests and lakes. Its towns and cities are small by European standards and are mostly located in the southern third of the country, where the majority of Swedes live.

Of its cities, serenely beautiful Stockholm is supreme. Sitting elegantly on fourteen different islands, where the waters of Lake Mälaren meet the Baltic Sea, the city boasts some fantastic architecture, fine museums and by far the best culture and nightlife in the country.

The 24,000 islands which comprise the Stockholm archipelago are a perfect antidote to the urban bustle, offering endless opportunities to explore unspoilt island villages and to go swimming.
On the west coast, Gothenburg, the country’s second city, is another of Sweden’s most appealing destinations. Gothenburgers have a reputation for being among the friendliest people in Sweden, and the city’s network of canals and spacious avenues is reminiscent of Amsterdam, whose architects designed it.

During an MSC Northern Europe cruise to Sweden you will discover that the south is the most cosmopolitan part of the country, owing to the proximity of Denmark and the rest of the European continent, and home to the glorious ancient university seat of Lund, while nearby Malmö, Sweden’s third city, heaves with youthful nightlife around its medieval core.
