SOAR - Stockholm Chapter

SOAR-Stockholm joined the SOAR family in May 2014. According to Swedish legend, a navigator in the 10th century by the name of Petrus was so enchanted by the beauty of an Armenian princess that he travelled to Armenia and married her. Official Armenian presence in Sweden started in the 18th century when a group of Armenians accompanied Swedish King Karl XII to Sweden in 1714 and integrated into Swedish society over the years. Most Armenians in Sweden belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church, which has a Church in Botkyrka, and the Armenian Catholic Church, which holds services in Södertälje and Trollhättan. There are approximately 8,000 Armenians in Sweden today, residing primarily in Stockholm and Uppsala.
