The old Stockholm was located on Helgeandsholmen which grew up during the 13th century. It was not long, however, until the city moved in between the bridges, and we know this part of the city as the Old Town. The name Stockholm is first heard of in the chronicle of Eric (Eriks krönikan), probably written between 1322 and 1332. According to this chronicle Stockholm was founded by Birger Jarl in 1252.
Known also as SAS. Founded in 1946, based on the visionary idea that the three Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Norway and Sweden were too small independently to develop a major international airline but if they joined forces they would be able to challenge international competition.
