This climatic region is typified by large seasonal temperature differences, with warm to hot (and often humid) summers and cold (sometimes severely cold) winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Stockholm has a humid continental climate, abbreviated "Dfb" on climate maps.[5] This climate makes it suitable for naturism and the Rock Lodge Club naturist resort is near Lake Stockholm.
