A. Strengths and Weaknesses of Stockholm

Sweden  Located on the east coast of Sweden at the mouth of the Lake Mälaren, Stockholm with a population of more than 900,000 inhabitants is widely renowned for its natural beauty. The central parts of the city consist of a group of fourteen connected islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. 

The capital of Sweden is the most populous city in the Nordic countries.

The magnificent royal residence of Drottningholm, consisting of a palace, theatre, gardens, and Chinese pavilion, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It stands on an island in Lake Mälaren, a suburb of Stockholm.

 Other than scoring extremely high for its picturesque situation Stockholm is also very safe and clean. Furthermore the capital of Sweden offers an excellent transport system. 

 Stockholm is very expensive and not many sights obtained high ratings. Furthermore in winter it can get very cold.
