Stockholm overview

Stockholm[a] is the capital of Sweden and the most populous city in the Nordic countries;[9][b] 952,058 people live in the municipality,[10] approximately 1.5 million in the urban area,[5] and 2.3 million in the metropolitan area.[11] The city stretches across fourteen islands where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea. Just outside the city and along the coast is the island chain of the Stockholm archipelago. The area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, and was founded as a city in 1252 by Swedish statesman Birger Jarl. It is also the capital of Stockholm County. Stockholm is the only capital in the world with a national urban park.[12]

Stockholm is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden. The Stockholm region alone accounts for over a third of the country's GDP,[13] and is among the top 10 regions in Europe by GDP per capita.[14] It is an important global city,[15][16] and the main centre for corporate headquarters in the Nordic region.[17] The city is home to some of Europe's top ranking universities, such as the Stockholm School of Economics, Karolinska Institute and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).[18][19] It hosts the annual Nobel Prize ceremonies and banquet at the Stockholm Concert Hall and Stockholm City Hall. One of the city's most prized museums, the Vasa Museum, is the most visited non-art museum in Scandinavia.[20][21] The Stockholm metro, opened in 1950, is well known for the decor of its stations; it has been called the longest art gallery in the world.[22][23][24] Sweden's national football arena is located north of the city centre, in Solna. Ericsson Globe, the national indoor arena, is in the southern part of the city. The city was the host of the 1912 Summer Olympics, and hosted the equestrian portion of the 1956 Summer Olympics otherwise held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Stockholm is the seat of the Swedish government and most of its agencies,[25] including the highest courts in the judiciary,[26][27] and the official residencies of the Swedish monarch and the Prime Minister. The government has its seat in the Rosenbad building, the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) is seated in the Parliament House, and the Prime Minister's residence is adjacent at the Sager House.[28][29][30] The Stockholm Palace is the official residence and principal workplace of the Swedish monarch, while the Drottningholm Palace, a World Heritage Site on the outskirts of Stockholm, serves as the Royal Family's private residence.[31][32]

About FOREX Bank
FOREX Bank 50 år

We sell basic banking services with personal service and high availability.

From a barber shop to over 110 branches in four countries. It all started at Gyllenspets barber shop at Stockholm Central Station. Gyllenspets learnt that many of his customers were tourists, who also was in need of currencies (local and foreign). With time, his barber shop turned into a small foreign exchange bureau that was run up until the 1960s by the Swedish State Rail Authority.

In 1965, travel agent Rolf Friberg, FOREX Bank’s former CEO, was offered the opportunity to buy the foreign exchange bureau business to be able to provide a foreign currency service to his travel agency’s customers.

Until the beginning of the 1990s, FOREX Bank was the only company besides the banks that was licensed by the Swedish Central bank to trade in currencies.

FOREX Bank became a bank in 2003, and is currently the market-leading foreign exchange bureau in the Nordic region. In addition to foreign exchange, FOREX Bank currently offers several competitive bank services in Sweden.

We have more than 110 branches in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. We welcome you to one of your branches where we will be happy to serve you.
