A record number of tourists visited Stockholm in July. The number of guest nights in hotels, youth hostels and holiday cottages rose by 11 percent since July 2006 to 902,000, according to figures from Stockholm Visitors' Board.


Stockholm is a beneficiary of the global trend of travellers taking shorter, more frequent trips, the board said in a statement. An increased number of direct flights, particularly those operated by low-cost carriers, had also helped Stockholm, it added.

While international tourists were major contributors to the rise, the number of Swedes visiting the capital was also up. The number of guest nights for the year as a whole is up 5 percent to 4.5 million.
