Stockholm report 2007

Stockholm, capital region in one of the Scandinavian countries is characterized by being a waterfront region; and water has always connected people and places. In ancient times when roads were poor and scant, the sea, lakes and rivers permitted diligent and efficient transportation of people and all kinds of commodities. In spite of its peripheral location, waterways have made it possible for the Stockholm region to maintain close connections and trade with cities across the Baltic and elsewhere in Europe. The waterways are also used for recreation and add a high quality of life for the area’s 3 million inhabitants.
