Thanks!

Some more from yesterday.
This time from Gävlegatan and Vanadisplan, northeast of Röda Bergen.
And some from Torsgatan which splits Röda bergen into two parts.

Gävlegatan

I really love this building




Gävlegatan leads up to Vanadisplan


Vanadisplan















Torsgatan

The Northern part of this long street leading up to where Tors torn will be built and the Norra station area.











Street ending at Torsplan where the Norra station area will be built and hopefully where Tors torn will rise high!

Birkastan is a really beautiful area, I haven't really explored it at all on my own though (yet). Good job with the pics!

Destination Sankt Johannes Church!

I usually call this area Johanessplan but I'm not sure if the whole area goes under that name or if it's just a part.
Anyway it is a very calm area in a very central and busy part of Stockholm.


I got there from Hötorget underground station and then:

Malmskillnadsgatan

Up that street


A quick look to the right


A quick look to the left


forward kinda


A little bit to the right


Even more to the right


Eh?


A quick look to the right


A quick look to the left



Looking back! Confused!


Still confused


Even more confused


Really confused


ah


A quick look to the right


A quick look to the left


Forward


And there it is

Yes it is beautiful!

I tried to take a photo from inside the church, but they turned out too dark.
I wasn't even sure if one was allowed to take photos from inside the church, but no one was around so I took a few shots that unfortunately failed!

Why wouldn't you be allowed. Its not like it's a top secret place.
You can't take photos of military facilities and that is it.

Engelbrektskyrkan and Lärkstan
is located on Östermalm

The Engelbrekt church
from 1914 by architect Lars Israel Wahlman
















Lärkstan

Lärka means lark and in stockholm slang lärka means prostitute.
Before this area was built in the early 1900s prostitutes used to be located here, hence Lärkstan or the Lark city.
Lärkstan on Östermalm is bordering Vasastan and is located between Odengatan, Valhallavägen, Karlavägen and Uggleviksgatan.

















































The German School

Didn't take any pictures today, but the other day while late for a meating I still managed to take a few shots while heading down Klara Norra Kyrkogata for that meating.

Klara Norra Kyrkogata

Some of what is left of old Klara up to the Klara Church flanked by it's 1960s buildings.
Most of old Klara was torn down and replaced by other larger buidings during the 1960s!

Klara Norra Kyrko gata used to be the porn street of Stockholm, but nothing is left of that sin nowdays!





A look to the left up at Apelbergsgatan


More of Apelbergsgatan


Continuing on Norra Klara Kyrkogata






A look to the right down Mäster Samuelsgatan


A look to the left up Mäster Samuelsgatan


Klara Church flanked by the 1960s


Not the best quality of the pictures, sorry about that!

Barnhusbron

Pictures taken today from Barnhusbron which is a bridge to goes over Klara sjö between Vasastan and Kungsholmen.

The pictures are quite big and if they are too big I can change them to the same size as the first one? But I kinda liked them this big size!
I actually made the big ones half the size already!

From the park you can see up to Johannes church


But it's not up that way to Johannes! It's up that way to Eriksberg!


















Timmermansordern palace


Come on! Down this way!


Look back up!


Further down!


Halt! Stop! Look back!


Then look down Lodgatan on the right side while heading down the street


Then contue down Eriksbergsgatan a bit then look back up to where the stairs where


Then down again just to turn left


And up this way!


Walk above the street just walked down


Look bak!


Continue forward on Eriksbergsgatan and back down the same way as earlier


Down there is where the stairs where early on










Look down Stenbocksgatan and Humlegården park!


Look back up!


Continue down Eriksbergsgatan!






Nice corner!


Iversonsgatan and Humlegården park


Down the last bit of Erikbergsgatan although acctually look up!


The Eriksberg walk ends when arriving at Birger Jarlsgatan


There you have it! The Eriksberg walk!
