Stockholm is the capital and the largest city of Sweden. It is the site of the Swedish government, parliament
and official residence of the king of Sweden as well as a prime minister. As of 2008, the Stockholm metro-politan
area is the home of about 21% of total population. About two million people live in the Stockholm metropolitan
area. Due to the high northerly latitude, daylight varied widely from more than 18 hours in midsummer, to
only around 6 hours in late December in the city of Stockholm.
