Life as a student in Stockholm

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and one of the most prominent academic centres in northern Europe. The city is made up of several islands and is surrounded by water. The water is so clean that you can actually swim in the middle of the city. In the summer the the sun never fully sets and people gather in open bars, restaurants and parks to enjoy the light and the temperate climate. In the wintertime it is often possible to ice skate in the middle of the city.
