Stockholm Photo Thread By Tin_Can

Recently me & my wife took a small few week vacation in Stockholm and despite the fact that most of our time was wasted on shopping,partying & sightseeing,I managed to take few snapshots during our stay there. Be warned though,most of those photos are really camp,tourist snapshots Special thanks & greetings to all friendly Stockholmers who we met during our stay. Oh,and I apologize for any possible mislabeled photos - I'll stretch my memory to name the places correctly,but I'm no local...

Stockholm's coat of arms


Ok,here it goes...
1 For obvious reasons choice of travel was by ferry,so here's a pic taken during a short stop in Mariehamn (Finland),clock showed 4am..

2 Stockholm's archipelago..

3 Some old fort.

9 Most of the neighbourhood was rather unimpressive,so next stop was Östermalm area.

More to come...

When it comes to Stockholm, I'm becoming like a fervent child.
Even the grey weather can't beat Stockholm's beauty.
Strandvagen is something especially fantastic. It's a bit like Elizabetes street (northern part) in Riga, but in even greater scale.
Thanks for sharing the pics of this magnificent place, and I hope you will post at least thousand more!

Indeed! In bad weather & fog Stockholm was still charming,but in sun & early spring weather it was just gorgeous.

30 Honestly,when you start observing small architectural details in Stockholm,one can easily get lost in myriad of different eras & styles.

I'm in love with this city. I have been there for nine times and found something new each time. However, usually i tend to forget my camera and don't have many pictures (i keep the best moments in my mind).
Thank you very much for sharing these pictures with us.
