Main port for goods and passengers
The Port city of Stockholm is the main port for goods and passengers to and from Finland, Russia and the Baltic countries. From the port city, huge ferries leave for Finland and other Baltic countries. Annually, more than 11 million passengers pass through these ports from the capital, making them the largest area in Europe for meetings. The picture of the old town ("Gamla Stan") with the huge ferries docked in Södermalm is a classic picture reproduced on the souvenirs and postcards. In addition to the main docks, each island has hundreds of meters of moorings for all types of boats. It is obvious that in a city made up of islands, it is not very difficult to find suitable berths.
