Achieving ever-closer-union, as it foreshadowed, has been the driving force behind the gradual (and often forceful) assimilation of law, currency and culture across the European continent. To many, it seemed a wonderful way of enhancing international cooperation, and promoting both peace and unity.

There are plenty of things that make Stockholm easy to promote abroad, from the impossibly cute look of the Old Town to the super-creative food, music and shopping scenes, which have left much bigger cities playing catch up in recent years. Here are five more reasons why you should visit Stockholm in 2016.

Wising Up About Water

Barbara Frost

We all know a country can only develop fully if all of its population has access to water and sanitation. Taps and toilets transform people's life chances, leading to better health, education and economic opportunities. It is fundamental to eradicating extreme poverty and to women and girl's empowerment.

Regardless of when you're in Stockholm, it's worth remembering that most of the city's museums let kids in free. You'll also get 'free' admission to many of the city's museums if you buy the Stockholm Card - though this only works out cheaper in certain situations.

Sweden has always had a reputation for being expensive. But the pretty Nordic nation, which offers a cool, calm alternative to southern Europe's summer hotspots, is suddenly looking like great value. Here's why a summer escape to Sweden may be cheaper than you think.

Across Sweden, and particularly in big cities, you'll see small orange-and-blue signs with the word skyddsrum written on them. These mark the entrances to bunkers designed to protect people in the event of a military strike - or even a peacetime disaster.

European Comedy Tour Journal, Day Twelve: Vesteras

The host of the broadcast asked my subject what he would be doing with his life had he not found his calling as a stand up comedian, to which Daniel rather tragically responded that he'd probably be working in a job he hated, married to a spouse he didn't love, with children he didn't want. On measuring this brutally self aware proclamation I don't think Daniel considered the target audience of drive time radio.

What happened last night? Where did I leave Daniel? Why is my bed wet? Once I wrangle together my material possessions, find the location of my test subject and tip the maid, I relax in transit and begin to collate my findings from the previous day. Today is different, I have none of those anxieties.

The doting gesture of adoration is to act as a surprise accompaniment to the gift I had already left behind before embarking on my journey, and additionally aids to pacify any displeasure she may harbour towards my absence. I dare say it also selfishly helps to quell my own guilt at the situation. Regardless, Daniel has informed me that my actions suggest that I am a closeted homosexual.

The only voices that weren't heard were the ones of the marauding mountaineers themselves. Too young to comment? Maybe. Or perhaps they were just confused as to why there was an argument in the first place - 'We've got our own museums anyway.'

I had expected vibrance and rhythm in Madrid, I had ideas of romance and art for Paris, but Stockholm to me was an unknown island. There were no museums or monuments that I could automatically reel off and I had no idea about cuisine or history. However, I was excited to see the epicentre of Sweden and sample the culture it had to offer...

The Struggle to Survive: World Water Week

Frontier | Posted 06.11.2013 | UK

The inaccessibility of clean water and latrines is still a problem devastating developing countries across the world. Recent figures speak of a world of injustice, where nearly people lack access to safe water and 2.5 billion to sanitation. This is a far cry from the flushing toilets, hot showers and clean drinking water taken for granted in most developed countries.
