AddressWelcome you all to 21thEdition of International Conference on Dermatology and Melanoma which is to be held in the beautiful and exciting city Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm was first mentioned as a town in 1252 and was largely built by the Swedish ruler Birger Jarl. It grew rapidly as a result of a trade agreement made with the German city of Lübeck. This agreement ensured Lübeck merchants freedom from customs charges for their trade in Sweden, as well as the right to settle there. The city came to be officially regarded as the Swedish capital in 1436. After conflicts between the Danes and Swedes for many years, Stockholm was liberated from Danish rule by Gustav I Vasa in 1523.
Stockholm developed rapidly in the mid-17th century as Sweden temporarily became a great power. The central government departments were then placed there, and the city became an independent administrative unit. The old city walls were torn down, and new districts grew up north and south of the “city between the bridges.” A new period of development began with industrialization in the 19th century, and the introduction of municipally organized cleaning (1859) and sanitation (1861) contributed to a rapid increase in population. During this time redevelopment took place in the medieval city nucleus, buildings were reconstructed, boulevards, avenues, and parks were laid out, and many of the city’s present-day schools, museums, libraries, and hospitals were built. Many suburbs and satellite towns have subsequently developed.
The original nucleus of the city is the “city between the bridges”—Gamla Stan (Old Town), consisting of Stads Island, Helgeands Island, and Riddar Island. The buildings in this area are mainly from the 16th and 17th centuries. This well-preserved city nucleus, with the original network of streets and many of its buildings dating from the Middle Ages, is legally protected from change. Stads Island contains the Royal Palace; Storkyrkan, also called the Cathedral.
occupying the mainland of Uppland to the north and that of Södermanland to the south. The chief northern districts are Norrmalm, Vasastaden, Östermalm, Kungsholmen, and Stadshagen. Stockholm is Sweden’s leading industrial area. Its major industries include metal and machine manufacturing, paper and printing, foodstuffs, and chemicals. Stockholm is the chief educational centre in Sweden and is home to Stockholm University (1877), the Royal Institute of Technology (1827), and the Caroline Medical Institute.Pop.

After defeating the Sture forces and taking Stockholm (September 1520), Christian, at the instigation of Trolle, had more than 80 Swedish nobles executed for heresy on November 8 and 9. Further executions followed, spreading throughout Sweden and Finland. The Kalmar Union seemed secured, but the outrage of the bloodbath alienated virtually all Swedish factions from support of the union. By 1522 Gustav I Vasa (reigned 1523–60) was able, with the help of the peasants of the Dalarna region and the Hanseatic League, to drive the Danes out of Sweden and finally to dissolve the Kalmar Union.
