Sweden is a Scandinavian country with a large number of beach front islands and inland lakes, alongside huge boreal backwoods and glaciated mountains. Its primary urban areas, eastern capital Stockholm and southwestern Gothenburg and Malmö, are for the most part seaside. Stockholm is based on 14 islands. It has in excess of 50 scaffolds, just as the medieval old town, Gamla Stan, regal castles and exhibition halls, for example, outside Skansen.
