acc521 In Stockholm: 9 - 12 May 2009

Stockholm was one of my favourite cities of the entire trip, and somewhere I would certainly go again. Everyone there speaks fluent English (even their TV is all in English), the city is amazingly beautiful and very, very clean. The water is blue, the air is clean, and the people are really laid back and friendly.

It is very unique and very, very stylish. As you would expect from the home of Ikea, the Swedes are very much into design and random things for your home. There are boutique design shops everywhere.

And yes, there are lots of attractive blonde women about!

Excellent photographs of what has to be one of the most beautiful cities out there. Fantastic work!

Did you get to take some photographs of some of the T-bana cave stations? They're quite out of this world!

Nope. Would you believe it's one of the few cities where I never needed to catch public transport. Reading up on it now, I wish I had.

That's a shame, though you could view it as yet another excuse to visit again?

Great shots. Great city. That tunnel looks to go right under the city.

Stockholm is indeed a truly fantastic summer city.
Only Berlin is an even more unbeatable option.

Excellent photos of such a beautiful city - definitely one worth to visit by the looks of things. It certainly looks quite chilly in some of those shots .

Stockholm along with Barcelona is two my favorite cities I have been to. Stockholm is perfect in many ways, but that's not the main thing. It is very very soul-touching as well.
