Welcome to Nyköping

These days, the mid-sized city is a pretty, mellow place with far less subterfuge, although it was home to the reconnaissance division of the Swedish Air Force for many years: the museum in their honour is one of the town's main attractions. Otherwise, a big day out here doesn't usually get much more exciting than taking a pleasant riverside stroll or having a picnic by the harbour.

Although visitors to the city limits number in their tens of thousands each year, most people won't even know they've passed through – Stockholm's alternative international airport, Skavsta, popular with low-cost carriers, is located here.
