THIS IS STOCKHOLM
Stockholm began to be established in 1187 as a result of the Swift kingdom’s then main town, Sigtuna, being devastated by the Balts the same year. Traditionally, however, Birger Jarl (c. 1210–1266) also called Birger Magnusson, is usually counted as the city’s founder in 1252.
The emergence of Stockholm, which was settled and later as a city, is intimately linked to the isolation of Lake Mälaren from the Baltic, which has been going on since the last ice age, when the melting inland ice eased the pressure on the earth’s crust. The land rise in the Stockholm area is part of the post-glacial land rise in Scandinavia. Both the land elevation and water levels have together shaped changes in the shoreline around the Baltic Sea.
Stockholm is a big city with an active cultural life and because it is a capital there are many national cultural institutions. The cultural center on Sergel’s square is considered to be one of Sweden’s largest cultural institutions. Three of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites are located in the Stockholm area; Drottningholm Castle and Birka (both in Ekerö Municipality), and Skogskyrkogården (Stockholm Municipality). One of Stockholm’s biggest tourist attractions is the high guard, which is run at Stockholm and Drottningholm palaces.
Stockholm hosted the Summer Olympics in 1912. The Stockholm Olympic Stadium, which was built for that purpose after drawings by architect Torben Grut, has since been used for numerous sports competitions, mainly football and track and field. The stadium was AIK’s home arena for football 1912–1936 and was then home arena for Djurgårdens IF football team between 1936 and 2013.
Stockholm Avicii Arena is an arena located in Stockholm. It was inaugurated on February 19, 1989 and was the world’s largest spherical building until September 2023 when “The Sphere” in Las Vegas was was inaugurated as the new world’s largest. Stockholm has a big indoor arena for football “Friends Arena” in the vicinity of Solna was inaugurated in 2012 and has place for 50,000 sitting spectators and is Swedens National Arena for the national team.
The urban area of Stockholm has 1 515 017 inhabitants.
This bandy tournament will be mainly held in Gubbängens Skating- och Bandyhall. The building is 25 metres high with a floor size of 76×134 metres. Along one long side there is a grandstand with a capacity of just under 2,000 spectators. In addition to bandy, the hall is used for speed skating, short track and figure skating, among other things.
