The city of Stockholm is first mentioned in 1252. According to some sources, the ruler at the time, Birger Jarl, built the city in order to protect Sweden from invaders, and it was only in 1343 that Stokholm became the capital of Sweden, taking its time to become the most important cultural center as well. The name of the city was derived from combining three words: holm, meaning island, and stak, meaning bay, as well as stock, meaning tree trunk. Large tree trunks, which were used for protective purposes, were found where the Baltic Sea meets the Lake Mälaren. Sweden is a country that hasn’t waged war for the last 200 years, so its history is much more peaceful when compared to other European countries.
