Sigtuna is Sweden’s first town, founded in 970 by Erik Segersäll. His vision was to establish an international meeting place, a nation under one God and one King. It was unlike anything seen before, and both the town planning and the idea for a modern hub remain pretty much unchanged. Today, the town is Sweden’s fourthlargest hotel destination with around 800,000 overnight stays per year, and the municipality hosts the country’s largest international airport, Stockholm Arlanda. “You really shouldn’t miss where it all started,” says tourism director Camilla Zedendahl.
