With an 800-year history as well as all the conveniences of the capital, Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Multinational deals are struck in one part of the city while relaxed tourists wander through the cobblestone streets in another. Living in Stockholm means enjoying the best of both worlds; exciting career opportunities on the one hand and beautiful forests, mountains, parks, and 160 km of shoreline on the other. Voted on to a list of global "cities of opportunity" in 2014, Stockholm provides expats with a variety of career options, and as a center for international business you'll find that the English language is prevalent. IT, telecommunications, and the financial services industry will attract job seekers, as will the institutions for scientific research and eco-technology. The many international schools provide opportunities within education, and of course the hospitality and tourism industry provides a healthy contribution to Stockholm's income With palaces, museums, stunning architecture, and theaters around every corner, Stockholm is perfect for the global explorer and expat alike. As you settle into life here make sure you visit the unusual Skansen open air museum and zoo, the regularly changing photography museum Fotografiska, and of course learn about your new country in the Swedish History Museum.
