More Stockholm:

The Drottningholm Palace (Drottningholms slott) is the private residence of the Swedish royal family. It is located in Drottningholm, built on the island Lovön (in Ekerö Municipality of Stockholm County), and is one of Sweden's Royal Palaces

the ship seen in the picture is a popular youth hostel, while the Slussen area is seen in the background. Slussen (the Sluice) is an area of central Stockholm, on the Söderström river connecting Södermalm and Gamla stan. The area is named after the locks between Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea. The locks themselves allow passage between these two bodies of water (of different levels). Slussen also refers to the cloverleaf interchange and associated pedestrian passages and walkways created in 1935

Hammarby sjöstad - a world reknown former industrial area and working-class district that has been converted into a role-model sustainable district (a trendy thing here)

The Architect's Office by H Sundholm (henriksundholm.com), on Flickr

a cozy park and pathway in Djurgården island (by Djurgården channel) which is primarily known as the island of museums where the museums such as Skansen, Nordiska and Vasa (and not only) are located

the location of the city (located in many islands, where a large lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea) is perfect for enjoying the views from numerous bridges and waterfronts. The rose building seen in the left corner of the picture is Münchenbryggeriet which is a public space nowadays

I had to do a double take looking at those Melbourne photos. It looks eerily similar to Toronto, but with a few subtle tip offs that it was some place else. More please!

Shouldn't the tread title be changing to "Swedish cities at street level" to reflect the content within?

I won't bother searching through numerious flickr pictures I case I can find some. Norwegian cities aren't very popular in general so there aren't many pictures around anyway. But if it is of any interest, then I can post a few of the ones I have taken in Oslo.
