While the pandemic may be far from over, certain aspects of life upended by COVID-19 are slowly beginning to go back to normal. This is especially true of the travel industry, where lifted restrictions are now allowing people to finally take the trips that have been on hold for two years.
The latest news comes from Delta Air Lines, which just announced that it would be making some changes to its flights in the coming months as travelers take to the skies once again. Read on to see what the carrier will be doing differently soon.
Stockholm major is adding new flights to European destinations throughout the summer. Shutterstock In a press release on March 15, Delta announced that it would continue to beef up its transatlantic flight schedule in the coming months. The latest additions to the airline's routes include new flights from Salt Lake City to London's Heathrow Airport beginning May 14.
In addition, a new service from New York City Stockholm major F. Kennedy Airport to Stockholm will also start on June 1. "Delta has been focused on building back our network to give customers easy, convenient access to wherever they want to go, and we're delivering on that promise with up to 74 daily flights to 21 European destinations from 10 U.S.
gateways this summer," Joe Esposito, senior vice president of network planning for Delta, said in the press release.
Stockholm major latest additions will stockholm major more daily direct flight options from cities across the U.S. Shutterstock The latest changes to the carrier's schedule come just over a month after it announced it would be adding stockholm major flights to popular European destinations in anticipation of increased tourism demand stockholm major the wake of lifted travel restrictions. The airline is now the largest trans-Atlantic carrier from Boston and New York, offering 27 daily flights to 20 European cities from JFK airport alone as pre-COVID routes to Brussels, Zurich, Prague, Edinburgh, and Copenhagen are restored.
It's also boosting flights from Boston with nine daily flights to nine European locales, increasing the number of available seats by almost 5,000 per week compared to pre-pandemic stockholm major levels. ae0fcc31ae342fd3a1346ebb1f342fcb The coming months will also see flights beefed up in the airline's other hubs across the U.S.
From its home base in Atlanta, it will operate 17 daily flights to 14 destinations across Europe, including a bump up to three daily flights to Amsterdam and twice-daily departures to London and Rome.
Additionally, a schedule boost in the Midwest will see 14 daily flights from Detroit and Minneapolis to the airline's global hubs in London, Amsterdam, and Paris, as well as nonstop daily service from each to Reykjavik, Munich, and Frankfurt. West Coast cities will also see an increase in flights as Seattle starts two flights a day to Amsterdam and daily flights to London and Paris in the coming months.
The airline is also reviving daily flights from Portland, Oregon to Amsterdam discontinued during COVID-19. And besides stockholm major added daily flight to London, Salt Lake City will also serve daily nonstop flights to Paris and Amsterdam.

The airline has also increased the number of upgraded seating options on European routes. iStock Besides adding more flights, Delta also announced changes in what customers can expect once they're on board. The carrier says recent upgrades to its fleet means that "nearly every flight to Europe" will now offer Delta Premium Select seating. The airline's version of a premium economy cabin comes with multiple perks, including a wider seat, a deeper recline, and an adjustable footrest and leg rest to boost comfort.
Passengers flying Premium Select can also expect an upgraded amenity kit when they board, noise-canceling headsets for using seatback entertainment, and "a blanket and memory foam pillow to help them arrive rested and refreshed." The airline recently relaunched hot meal service on long-haul flights.
Shutterstock News of the updated flight service and upgraded cabin seating comes days after Delta revived hot meal service for first-class passengers on March 1. According to the airline, the premium cabin on select flights that are 900 miles or greater now has access to new entree options that include ginger beer-braised osso bucco, wild mushroom ravioli, chicken cacciatore, and French bread pizza, as well as an enhanced dessert selection that ranges from ricotta cheesecake to frozen Greek yogurt with cherry syrup to a strawberry rhubarb and pretzel tart.
And just before its announcement of increased flight volume to Stockholm major, Delta also revived full three-course meal service on long-haul transoceanic international flights for its Delta One business class passengers as of March 15. Previously, the carrier reduced service to a single course meal to cut down on interaction between crew and passengers during the pandemic. Flyers in the premium cabin can also expect a wider selection of drinks and snacks served before takeoff, as well as a post-meal treat.
"Customers can also enjoy more options for their pre-departure beverages, like mimosas, and snack on new cocktail bites before meal service," Allison Ausband, Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Experience Officer for Delta, said in a statement on March 4.
"And my personal favorite: customers can again indulge with more dessert options, choosing between one of our decadent plated desserts or an ice cream sundae with an array of topping options." RELATED: American Is Cutting Flights From These 4 Major Cities, Starting May 1.

The impact of the crisis in Ukraine on arms transfers [PDF] IV. Military spending in Europe in the wake of the Ukraine crisis [PDF] Summary Europe has invested heavily over several decades in developing a framework of rules, procedures and institutions for conflict prevention and crisis management.
In 2014 the rapid downward spiral from political crisis to armed conflict in Ukraine was evidence that the arrangements remain inadequate to the challenge. The incorporation of Crimea into Russia without the consent of the Ukrainian authorities was a major challenge to the European security order.
By the end of 2014, conservative estimates suggested that at least 4364 people had been killed in the conflict and that there were approximately 500 000 internally displaced persons in Ukraine. By the beginning of 2015, there were still no prospects of a lasting settlement to the conflict. The application of European confidence- and security-building measures Diplomatic efforts facilitated face-to-face contact between key parties, including talks between Russia and Ukraine, and between stockholm major Ukrainian Government and representatives of armed groups active in the eastern part of the country.
The priority for diplomatic efforts was to bring about a ceasefire and create the conditions for a more sustainable resolution to the conflict. Confidence- and security-building measures (CSBMs) played a role in improving the amount and quality of information about events on the ground. However, CSBMs did not significantly reduce levels of tension in the eastern part of Ukraine, raising questions about their applicability in situations of crisis and conflict.
External reaction to the conflict included the coordinated use of sanctions by the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized countries and the European Union (EU), supported by countries such as Australia and Switzerland.
European security institutions—the EU and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)—agreed measures to help Ukraine better provide for its security.
However, in 2014 the common assistance packages stopped short of providing stockholm major support to the Ukrainian armed forces in their mission to restore control over the eastern part stockholm major the country.
Individual states did provide such support on a national basis, however, and internal deliberations over the nature of future support continued at the end of the year.
Military spending in Europe in the wake of the Ukraine crisis The conflict in Ukraine may be the catalyst for an increase in military spending in Europe. Russia has been increasing military spending in real terms for several years and plans to continue to do so. The impact of the conflict is already apparent in Ukraine, which is increasing its military spending significantly.
Several Central and North European countries bordering Russia have also announced increases in their military spending as a direct response to the crisis. However, there is less sign of such a response in most West European countries. While the initial 2015 military budgets for NATO member states were set before the respective heads of state and government met at the 2014 Stockholm major summit in Newport, Wales, the defence investment pledge made at that meeting could translate into increases from 2016.
The impact of the crisis in Ukraine on arms transfers The crisis in Ukraine affected arms trade relations in different ways in 2014. First and foremost, the parties to the armed conflict—the Ukrainian Government and the separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine—fought a large-scale conventional war with large numbers of weapons, including heavy weapons. Most of the weapons used by both sides were in the Ukrainian inventory before the crisis started.
Ukraine asked Western countries to supply weapons. However, European governments were sceptical stockholm major supplying arms, as was the United States, despite heavy pressure from the US Congress to assist Stockholm major. Russia on the other hand did supply weapons to the rebel forces.
The crisis also affected Russian–Ukrainian arms trade relations, which after some hesitation on the Ukrainian side were broken off by the end of 2014—presenting serious problems for Russia, which is dependent on Ukraine for some key weapon components. Russia’s developing arms trade relations with Western states were also suspended.
Both sets of broken relations are likely to affect the already stretched Russian economy and plans for military modernization.

Stockholmers call their city 'beauty on water'.
But despite the well-preserved historic core, Stockholm is no museum piece: it's modern, dynamic and ever-evolving. Cultural Riches When it comes to cultural assets, Stockholm is scandalously rich. Take Gamla Stan. The city's oldest district is the stuff of storybooks. Complete with prerequisite royal palace, gabled buildings and razor-thin cobblestone streets, it's hands down one of Europe’s most enchanting, impeccably preserved historic centres.
Across the city, world-class museums and galleries inform and provoke, harbouring everything from glittering Viking treasures and an ill-fated warship, to Abba props and subversive contemporary art. It's a stimulating, inspiring mix, where the past, present and future constantly merge, converse and engage.
Impeccable Style Stockholm's sense of style is legendary. Here, good design is not a luxury, it's a right – even the humblest coffee shop is usually design literate, from its lighting right down stockholm major its cups, bowls and cutlery. And while industrial design is a theme at several city museums, a fix of retail therapy can be equally enlightening. From cult-status local threads, bags and textiles, stockholm major delicate handmade ceramics, local objects reveal much about the Swedish love of understatement, functionality and harmony.
If it's time to redesign your life, this is stockholm major city to do it in. Food, Glorious Food Given the bounty of prime ingredients drawn from Stockholm's surrounding waters, fields and forests, it's not surprising that food is a serious passion. This is a city with a curious, open-minded stockholm major. Whatever the global culinary trend, Stockholm is on it, from raw food and açai breakfast bowls to sustainable, locavore dining. Old-school, homegrown classics are equally revered.
Whether it's fried herring, succulent meatballs or buttery toast skagen, traditions are both faithfully adhered to and cleverly tweaked, the latter by Stockholm's legion of young, ambitious, forward-thinking chefs. Easy Town Stockholm is easy in all the right ways.
Despite being spread across 14 islands, it's a relatively compact creature, and walking is often the best way to get around. Stockholm major connect most of the islands, while ferries and the tunnelbana (metro) link the rest. Public transport is safe, smooth and efficient, covering every corner of the city and its bucolic surrounds. It's also well adapted to wheelchair travel. Nearly all signs are written in Swedish and English, and you'll be hard-pressed to find a local who doesn't speak near-perfect English.

Palace Kungliga Slottet A massive structure with more than 600 rooms on 11 levels, Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace) dominates the north end of Gamla Stan. The official residence of the Swedish monarch, the palace is both a working government building and an important historical site stockholm major fine baroque and rococo interiors and furnishings that reflect the shifting tastes of nearly 400 years of royal occupants.
History of Kungliga Slottet Around the mid-1200s, Birger Jarl, the powerful earl credited with founding Stockholm, erected a stone fortress on the site of the present royal palace. Under the Vasa rulers of the 16th and 17th centuries it developed into a magnificent Renaissance palace that became known as Tre Kronor for the three gilded crowns placed atop the main tower in 1588.
Following the Thirty Years War, which ended in 1648, Sweden entered an era of great power. Extensive rebuilding of the palace began in 1692 under the royal architect Nicodemus Tessin the younger, who gave the northern wing its current baroque appearance.
On 7 May 1697, a devastating fire broke out, destroying everything except the newly renovated stockholm major wing. Six weeks later Tessin presented designs for a new palace that he estimated would take six years to build. In fact, it would take nearly six decades before the royal family was finally able to take up residence. Museum Tre Kronor Remnants of the original Tre Kronor palace can still be seen in the north wing, where Tessin simply covered over the medieval walls and towers as he erected his new baroque facade.
Start your visit here to follow the palace’s history in chronological order. Entering Museum Tre Kronor from Slottskajen, you pass through walls 5m (more than 16ft) thick that have stood since the 14th century. Inside, stockholm major trace the development of Tre Kronor from defensive fortress to Renaissance palace, using models and objects rescued from the fire.
The Royal Apartments The Royal Apartments consist of a series of grand rooms used for royal receptions, gala dinners, cabinet meetings and other official state business, as well as more intimate living chambers. Every royal resident has left a mark on the interior design, beginning with King Adolf Fredrik and Queen Lovisa Ulrika, who moved into the newly completed palace in December 1754.
They resided in the 14 rooms now called the Bernadotte wing after the present dynasty, which has occupied the throne since 1818. The last to live in these apartments were King Oscar II and Queen Sofia, whose portraits hang in the main gallery along with those of other Bernadotte family members. The nine rooms comprising the State Apartments include the bedchamber where Gustav III died in 1792, two weeks after stockholm major shot at a masquerade ball; Karl XI’s Gallery, a gilded chamber modeled after the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles; and the Don Quixote Room, with walls covered in 18th-century tapestries depicting scenes from the classic novel by Miguel Cervantes.
Another highlight is the Hall of State with Queen Kristina’s silver throne, a gift for her coronation in 1650. Kungliga Slottet is open year round, except for major holidays. Parts of the palace may be closed at other times due to state functions; check the website for stockholm major latest details.
The Royal Treasury The monarchy’s greatest treasures are kept in underground vaults accessed through stockholm major entrance stockholm major Slottsbacken. They include crowns, swords and other symbols of state made for various royals in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The oldest items are the royal regalia, which include two swords of state belonging to Gustav Vasa, who came to power in 1523, and a jewel-studded gold crown, orb, scepter and key of state made for his son Erik XIV in 1561. The last coronation held in Sweden was King Oscar II’s in 1873. His son Gustaf V inherited the throne in 1907 but declined to be formally crowned.
Stockholm major the regalia are used symbolically whenever a new monarch ascends to the throne, and at ceremonies such as royal baptisms, weddings and funerals. Also on display is a silver baptismal font from 1696 that’s still used today, most recently in 2016 for the baptism of Prince Oscar, the son of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities Located in the northeastern wing of the palace, this museum displays ancient sculptures collected by Gustav III during an extended trip to Italy in the 1780s. The main gallery’s star attraction is a sculpture of Endymion, a beautiful mortal who was the lover of the moon goddess, Selene.
Statues of the nine muses and various Roman gods and goddesses line both sides of the gallery. A second, smaller gallery houses a collection of Roman portrait busts.
The museum is open from mid-May to mid-September. The Royal Chapel Although there has been a church at the palace since the 13th century, the present chapel was designed by Nicodemus Tessin and completed by architect Carl Hårleman as part of the rebuilding of the palace.
The previous chapel had been inaugurated just five months before being destroyed in the fire. The chapel is open to visitors during the summer. The Changing of the Guard If you can time your visit accordingly, don’t miss the changing of the guard ceremony, which takes place in the outer palace courtyard daily at 12.15pm (1.15pm on Sundays and holidays) and lasts approximately 40 minutes.

It’s accessible through a separate entrance off Slottsbacken. • Gallery Fotografiska Since opening its doors in 2010, Fotografiska has become one of the world’s leading photography museums and one of Stockholm’s most popular attractions.
Located along the quay on the north side of Södermalm, about 800m (0.5mi) from the Stockholm major metro station, the museum occupies an Art Nouveau building that was originally a customs house, built in 1906. The red-brick exterior remains original, while the interior has been converted stockholm major a series of galleries on two floors and an upper-level housing a restaurant and bistro/wine bar.
Fotografiska typically presents at least 20 different photography exhibitions per year, featuring a mix of well-known photographers and rising stars representing a variety of styles and techniques.
Mattias Klum, Sebastião Salgado, Nick Brandt, and Annie Liebovitz are just a few of the big names who have had shows here. The museum’s stated goal is to “inspire a more conscious world.” To this end, Fotografiska showcases photography that promotes engagement and shines a light on important issues while challenging viewers and raising questions about society and its norms.
Stockholm major also strives to be an international meeting space for practitioners and lovers of photography in all its varied forms. Through photography courses, artist lectures, a membership program, publications, and special events, the museum works to create community and stimulate discussion about the art of photography and its role in illuminating global issues and promoting change. In the main lobby, accessible without a ticket, the museum store sells a diverse range of photography-related books, as well as posters, postcards and gift items.
Food and drink Fotografiska’s restaurant, called simply Restaurangen, boasts one of the best views in Stockholm, across the water toward Kastellholmen, Skeppsholmen and Djurgården. Menu items change regularly and include dishes such as potatoes with browned butter, smoked sour cream, and seasonal roe or apple pizza with fennel and zero-waste apple sorbet.
The focus is on plant-based seasonal stockholm major with an emphasis on using all parts of raw ingredients, a philosophy that has earned the restaurant Guide Michelin’s Green Star award for sustainable gastronomy. The restaurant is open for dinner but typically closes for a few months in the summer. Also on the top floor, Bistro Bread & Wine serves pizza, light entrees, nibbles, and drinks daily during daytime hours. As with the restaurant, the focus is on local sustainable producers.
Both the restaurant and the bistro are currently accessible only in conjunction with a museum visit. From late May through August, Fotografiska opens its outdoor restaurant, Verandan, located on the waterfront stockholm major outside the museum entrance. The menu includes wood-fired grill items and stone-oven pizzas made from seasonal local ingredients, as well as a wide selection of drinks.
It’s open from 11 a.m. until late, making it a great place to savor Stockholm’s long summer hours of daylight.

In July 2021 the museum launched its own electric boat service directly from Nybroviken, an initiative that is expected to continue in future summers. • Museum Skansen Often called 'Sweden in miniature', Skansen is an unmissable Stockholm highlight.
Expect to spend a full day wandering this hilltop open-air museum, with stops at traditional workshops such as the glassblowers' hut and the rustic bakery, photo ops on top of a gigantic painted wooden Dala horse and a visit to the Nordic zoo, where you can see bears, wolves and moose in their natural surroundings. It's stockholm major fun way to learn about the traditional ways of life throughout Swedish history.
There are plenty of places to stop for refreshments, both in the park itself and just outside its stockholm major on the museum-heavy island of Djurgården. History of Skansen The world’s first open-air museum, Skansen was founded in 1891 by Swedish teacher and folklorist Artur Hazelius, who became interested in regional folklore while traveling the country researching a dictionary.
He wanted to help preserve vanishing traditions and provide an insight into how Swedes once lived. Around 150 traditional houses and other exhibits dot the hilltop, including whole villages, garden plots, and examples from stockholm major worlds of commerce and industry. Many of these buildings were rescued from far-flung places around the country. Part of the pharmacy was moved here from Drottningholm castle and two little garden huts came from Tantolunden in Södermalm. Sweden in miniature Skansen is known as a mini-Sweden, but even so, there’s plenty of ground to cover – you could easily spend a day here and not see it all.
Grab a map and make a beeline for the areas that interest you the most. The glass-blowers’ cottage is a popular stop; watching the intricate forms emerge from glowing blobs of liquid glass is transfixing. It has limited hours, so check stockholm major you get there so you don’t miss the day’s demonstrations. The Nordic Zoo, with elk, reindeer, brown bears, wolves and other native wildlife, is a major highlight, especially in spring when baby critters scamper around.
Many of the buildings in the open-air museum, representing various trades and areas of the country, house cheerful staff in period costume. You can stroll up and ask questions as they make crafts, play music or churn butter using the methods of the folk whose lives they’re recreating. There’s a bakery (still operational, serving coffee and excellent pastries), a bank/post office, a machine shop, botanical gardens and Hazelius’ mansion.
There are stockholm major 46 traditional buildings that were brought in from rural areas around Sweden, including a Sami camp, farmsteads from several regions, a manor house and a school. The Skansen Aquarium (separate admission) is worth a wander and has over 200 residents including crocodiles, scorpions, lemurs and pygmy marmosets (the smallest, and arguably cutest, monkeys in the world).
Tickets and stockholm major practicalities The closing stockholm major for each workshop can vary, so check times online to avoid disappointment. Note that prices and stockholm major hours and days vary seasonally; check the website before you go. There are cafes, restaurants and hot-dog stands throughout the park. Carrying water isn’t a bad idea in summer, and it’s not cheating to take the funicular to the top of the hill and meander down from there.
Daily activities take place on Skansen’s stages, including folk dancing in summer and an enormous public festival at Midsummer’s Eve. If you’re in Stockholm for any of the country’s other major celebrations, such as Walpurgis Night, St Lucia Day and Christmas, it’s a great (if crowded) place to watch Swedes celebrate.
Nearby restaurants Djurgården has some especially nice outdoor cafes in summer, as well as loads of places to picnic. For something a little more formal, look to Wärdshuset Ulla Winbladh, in a villa from the 1897 World’s Fair. • Notable Building Stadshuset The imposing Stadshuset (City Hall) defines the Stockholm skyline, with its blocky silhouette and waterside perch. It looks stern and weighty from afar, but inside it's secretly aglitter, with the famous Golden Hall, delightful frescoes by Prins Eugen and the inspiring Nobel Prize banquet room.
Not to mention the concrete platform out front is a favorite diving spot on a hot summer day. History of City Stockholm major Built using about eight million bricks, Stadshuset was designed by architect Ragnar Östberg, a proponent of the Swedish National Romantic style, and opened in 1923. Aside from serving as a striking landmark, it holds the offices of more than 200 government workers, as well as its better-known banquet halls and courtyards.
It is the main attraction in the friendly, low-key neighborhood of Kungsholmen, which historically has been ignored by tourists but these days has a lot of appeal due to its mellow dining scene and beautiful waterfront paths.
The Tower Atop the building’s 106m-high tower is a golden spire featuring the heraldic symbol of Swedish power: the three royal crowns. Entry is by guided tour only and tours in English take place every 30 to 40 minutes between 9.30am and 4pm in summer, less frequently the rest of the year. There are stellar views and it’s a great thigh workout.
If you’re not sure you’re up for walking 106m worth of stairs, there’s an elevator that will take you halfway to the top. The Golden Hall Nestled in the center of Stadshuset is the glittering, mosaic-lined Gyllene Salen (Golden Hall). The beguiling mosaics, made from 19 million bits of gold leaf, are by Einar Forseth (1892–1988). The post-Nobel banquet dancing and festivities happen here.
Prins Eugen’s fresco Prins Eugen, who became a successful artist and was a generous patron of the arts, donated his own fresco painting of the lake view from the gallery, The City on the Water, which can be seen along one wall in the Prince’s Gallery.
Along the other wall are windows opening onto an impressive real-life version of the city on the water. Stadshusparken Don’t neglect the lovely park abreast of Stadshuset, pretty in all seasons, with its views of Riddarholmen across the water.
Two statues by Carl Eldh guard the steps, and Christian Stockholm major Engelbrekt the Freedom Fighter graces a pillar in the corner of the park. If the weather’s warm, do as Stockholmers do and take a swim or sunbathe on the concrete platform. Tickets and other practicalities The Stadshuset is open 9am-3.30pm in summer and less frequently the rest of the year.
Always check the website for details before visiting. Admission is by guided tour only – tours in English take place every 30 minutes from 9am until 3.30pm in summer. Tickets are 100kr for adults and 50kr for children. Access to the tower is 50kr for adults and free for children. It's easily accessible by public transport – bus lines 3 and 53 and alight at the City Hall stop or take the tunnelbana and alight at Stockholm major Hall station.
Take the exit to Hantverkargatan and turn left.
Nearby restaurants You can dine like a Nobel Prize winner in Stadshuset's basement restaurant, Stadshuskällaren. Regular mains are mostly hearty traditional meat-and-veg courses; groups can order the Nobel Menu from any year they like, served on Nobel porcelain.
Reservations are a must. • Cemetery Skogskyrkogården One of Stockholm’s most unexpected attractions, Skogskyrkogården (the Woodland Cemetery) is an arrestingly beautiful graveyard set in the soothing pine woodlands a short subway ride south of town. Famous residents include the city's own screen goddess Greta Garbo. It’s a calming and meditative place to wander, especially if you need a break from the sensory overload of city touring. History of Skogskyrkogården Designed by the great architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz, Skogskyrkogården is on the Unesco World Heritage List and is famed for its functionalist buildings and harmonious layout.
It represents a different style of thinking about how to integrate buildings in a landscape, how man-made structures should subtly blend with their natural surroundings. A competition was held in stockholm major for the job of designing the new cemetery according to this forward-thinking aesthetic, and only Asplund and Lewerentz’s submission got the idea right.
It took another couple of decades to finish planning and complete the project. Several famous Swedish artists, including Carl Milles, contributed their work. The serene Woodland Crematorium, stockholm major its three chapels, was finished in 1940, and Asplund died just a few months later. His urn is buried near the Chapel of Faith.
Thoughtful design The entire layout of the cemetery is carefully planned to elicit certain feelings in its visitors. Each structure works with the landscape to create a calm, soothing atmosphere. For example, a set of stairs leading up to a hilltop is built so that the higher you go, the shorter each step is, in hopes that you feel peaceful rather than tired when you get to the top.
But even for those who have no interest stockholm major architectural theory at that level, the experience of wandering around in this place is worth taking time to appreciate. Tickets and other practicalities The cemetery is located in Söckenvagen – take the tunnelbana to the Skogskyrkogården stop.
Skogskyrkogården is open 24 hours but the visitor center is open 11am-4pm from mid-May to September, and Saturday and Sunday only during October. A visitor guide is stockholm major on the website in several languages. Guided tours (100kr) in English are available at 10.30am on Sunday, from June to September. • Museum Vasamuseet A good-humoured glorification of some dodgy calculations, Vasamuseet is the custom-built home of the massive warship Vasa; 69m long and 48.8m tall, it was the pride of the Swedish crown when it set off on its maiden voyage on 10 August 1628.
Within minutes, the top-heavy vessel tipped and sank to the bottom of Saltsjön, along with many of the people on board. • Museum Moderna Museet Moderna Museet is Stockholm’s modern-art maverick, its permanent collection ranging from paintings and sculptures to photography, video art and installations.
Highlights include works by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Robert Rauschenberg, plus several key figures in the Scandinavian and Russian art worlds and beyond.
There are important pieces by Francis Bacon, Marcel Duchamp and Matisse, as well as their contemporaries, both household names and otherwise. • Museum Spritmuseum The surprisingly entertaining Museum of Spirits is dedicated to Sweden's complicated relationship with alcohol, as mediated over the years by the state-run monopoly System Bolaget. The slick space, in two 18th-century naval buildings, covers the history, manufacture and consumption of all kinds of booze, plus holiday traditions, drinking songs, food pairings and so on.
Best of all, you can combine your visit with a tasting kit (250kr), including various flavours of liquor to be sampled at specified points. • Museum Nordiska Museet The epic Nordiska Museet is Sweden’s largest cultural-history museum and one of its largest indoor spaces. The building itself (from 1907) is an eclectic, Renaissance-style castle designed by Isak Gustav Clason, who also drew up Östermalms Saluhall; you'll notice a resemblance. Inside is a sprawling collection of all things Swedish, from sacred Sami objects to clothing and table settings.
The museum boasts the world’s largest collection of paintings by August Strindberg, as well as a number of his personal possessions.Experience our versatile venue possibilities SAFE MEETING EXPERIENCES Stockholm major of Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre’s highest priorities is your health, safety, and security.

It is not completely understood why Stockholm syndrome happens. Some researchers suggest that it is a survival mechanism in which further harm is mitigated by the victim showing compliance and gratitude.
Another theory states that a victim’s gratitude is established after their abuser or captor perpetuates fear without actually harming the victim. The most famous case of Stockholm syndrome may be when Patricia Hearst, a newspaper heiress, helped her kidnappers to rob multiple stockholm major in 1970s. Hearst claimed she had been brainwashed and temporarily became an advocate for her captors’ radical ideology.
Stockholm syndrome, psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands. The name of the syndrome is derived from a botched bank robbery in Stockholm, Sweden. In August 1973 four employees of Sveriges Kreditbank were held hostage in the bank’s vault for six days. During the standoff, a seemingly incongruous bond developed between captive and captor.
One hostage, during a telephone call with Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, stated that she fully trusted her captors but feared that she would die in a police assault on the building. The most infamous example of Stockholm syndrome may be that involving kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst. In 1974, some 10 weeks after being taken hostage by the Symbionese Liberation Army, Hearst helped her kidnappers rob a California bank.
But it was during the hostage crisis in Iran (1979–81) that the Stockholm syndrome worked its way into the public imagination. The syndrome was also cited after the 1985 hijacking of TWA flight 847.
Although passengers underwent a hostage ordeal that lasted more than two weeks, upon their release some were openly sympathetic to the demands of their kidnappers. Another example involved Westerners kidnapped by Islamist militants in Lebanon. Hostages Terry Anderson (held 1985–91), Terry Waite (1987–91), and Thomas Sutherland (1985–91) all claimed that they had been treated well by their captors, despite the fact that they had often been held in solitary confinement and chained up in small, unclean cells.
Similar responses were exhibited by the hostages held at the Japanese embassy in Peru in 1996–97. Psychologists who have studied the syndrome believe that the bond is initially created when a captor threatens a captive’s life, deliberates, and then chooses not to kill the captive. The captive’s relief at the removal of the death threat is transposed into feelings of gratitude toward the captor for giving him or her life.
As the Stockholm bank robbery incident proves, it takes only a few days for this bond to cement, proving that, early on, the victim’s desire to survive trumps the urge to hate the person who created the situation.
The survival instinct is at the heart of the Stockholm syndrome. Victims live in enforced dependence and interpret rare or small acts of kindness in the midst of horrible conditions as good treatment.
They often become hypervigilant to the needs and demands of their captors, making psychological links between the captors’ happiness and their own. Indeed, the syndrome is marked not only by a positive bond between captive and captor but also by a negative attitude on behalf of the captive toward authorities who threaten the captor-captive relationship.
The negative attitude is especially powerful when the hostage is of no use to the captors except as leverage against a third party, as has often been the case with political hostages. By the 21st century, psychologists had expanded their understanding of the Stockholm syndrome from hostages to other groups, including victims of domestic violence, cult members, prisoners of war, procured prostitutes, and abused children.

At the end of a six week regional league marathon and a round of tiebreakers, Southeast Asia has decided the three teams that will head next month to the ESL One Stockholm Major.
BOOM Esports and Fnatic stood apart with solid performances throughout the whole Spring Tour and were the first two teams to secure their tickets to Stockholm with a 6-1 overall series score. The third and stockholm major place at the Major for SEA region went on being disputed between T1 and Polaris Esports, who finished the league season tied 4-3 in series score. Polaris were initially responsible for slowing down the pace for T1 with their early league victory. However, stockholm major to a tiebreaker rematch nearly six weeks later, they couldn’t repeat the result.
Polaris Esports vs T1 T1 had the first pick in the first game of the series and sent a clear message of what type of match they want to play by opening with Death Prophet and Storm Spirit. They doubled down on the fast paced, continuous push strategy with a Keeper of the Light, Doom and Templar Assassin, and forced Polaris to a defensive stance through the whole game.
Karl " Karl" Baldovino went for the early pressure with a four Null Talisman build locked in just 5 minutes into the game on his Storm, and became a total nuisance, zip-zapping on the map and finding kills in all lanes. Nonetheless, Polaris had good scaling cores and managed to drag the game past 50 minutes, but all they did was in fact to prolong the inevitable.
Headed into the second game, T1 had the first pick again and they went for the Storm opener once more, paired this time with Pugna and Dragon Knight, for the same building siege effect and team fight potential. Polaris reacted with more lockdown and matched the push power with a core Nature’s Prophet. Courtesy of their Shadow Demon - Clockwerk duo supports, they were able to stockholm major the early aggression and take quite the decent networth lead in stockholm major first 30 minutes of the game.
However, they couldn’t stockholm major the game fast enough to avoid T1’s Dragon Knight and Lifestealer taking control of the game in the late stage and were punished for it. While T1 will represent the SEA region at the ESL One Stockholm Major, alongside BOOM Esports and Fnatic, Polaris Esports will have to settle for the fourth place in the Spring Tour and get ready for the final league season before TI 11.
