Stockholm Photo Thread By Tin_Can

Few photos from vacation in Stockholm. 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..
[IMG]http://i44.************/nx9s91.jpg[/IMG]

3 Some old fort.

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

Uploading photos takes time,so be patient,more photos will be added...

How depressing is Stockholm in the winter.

Last summer I visited the city, it looked MUCH more attractive.

Well,it's all too common winter weather in Northern Europe...grey & dull. And while photos don't capture it quite well,Stockholm was nice & charming even in foggy weather.

Thankfully weather improved later

The city use sand to improve friction, this mix with the snow and melt into a nice brow collored slush. Winter in general is awfull in stockholm, cold, dark, cloudy, worthless public transport constantly under "force majore" breakdown, introvert hostile atitude amogs the locals and on and on and on.

Stockholm in the summer is the opposite...

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

I like the photos! The snow and winter make feel the warmth inside of these buildings. The city looks like in the fairy-tales by Anderson. Every house looks like a cosy shelter.

Why getting into the locals?


That's SOAP OPERA - ugly labours.


Your wish is totally insane - why immigrating into, to become the cheapest slave?


So this is the SLAVE - these are not the best of the pictures.

Stay intact.
