I'm enjoying this thread very much!! Interestingly, that streets looks very empty on most of your pics (and I like that too, love this calm feeling). You even step out on the middle of street and take view from there! I would love if I could do that in Riga...

Thank you!

I like the calm feeling too but I must be honest and say that I usually wait out people to get out of my picture, the same goes for cars.
And most pictures are taken in the morning.
I see this thread as more of a building thread than a city life one, although I have plain city life photos ocassionally.

And about standing in the middle of the street, most often it is on the stop part for the walker in the middle of the street, if it's not a street for only walkers or a tiny street with not much traffic.
Or I simply quickly jump out on the street!

The picturesque parts of Söder
Part one

Malmgårdsvägen

And you'll end up here looking back down Ljusterögatan


Turn a bit


Move back a bit


Turn some more


And more


And even more looking up the other side of Ljusterögatan


Now turn back looking up Malmgårdsvägen our destination street


Move out a bit


And some more


Get back on the right side of the street and move up some


Look back


Turn and look up the street


Move out some


Head up the street


Some more


Even more


Look back down the streeet


Turn and head up the street


But why not look down again just in case


Turn around and head up the street


But that is too far! Turn around and look in through the door at the inner yard


Have a peek


Turn some to the right


Turn some more to the right and see the street house from the inner yard side


Head out on the street again and move up on it


Turn to the left and look at the other side of the street


Look down that side of the street


Turn to the right and look down the street


Closer


Move back some


Turn to the right and look up Lilla Mejtensgränd


Look closer at a red house


Move back and turn to look down at Malmgårdsvägen


And turn to the right to look down Ringvägen opposit LillaMejtensgränd


Turn and move up Malmgårdsvägen along the read fence. Peek over it!


Continue up the Street and have a look at Sofia church


Continue walking up by the red fence and find a tiny red house


Look down the street


Continue up the street and get to the other side of Renstiernas gata and look back


End of part one of the picturesque parts of Söder

The picturesque parts of Söder
Part three

Vita Bergen and Sofia church
District of Södermalm
Pictures taken tuesday like the other picturesque ones

Not a follow the street post!
Just walk around up there!

This is where it all ended at the last post but it doesn't have to! Just turn around!


And head over the street of Rensiernas gata over to those stairs


Follow those german girls up the stairs


Just walk around up there


Look back a little


Look up







































Start heading down


Stage for free outdoor concerts and theater all summer




Strange


Down those stairs


And eventually end up here once again


And yet again have a look at this house


And now somehow find your way to Renstiernas gata and look up!




That is the end of the picturesque parts of Söder for me this time

From Berzeli park to the palaces at Blasieholmstorg


Arsenalsgatan and Blasieholmstorg
District of Norrmalm
Blasieholmstorg is not located on Blasiholmen as one might think since the start of Blasieholmen is Stallgatan where the square finishes

Remember being here?


Staring up at this house?


Well head up that way


And have a peek in at Arsenalsgatan


Some more


Look to your left


And step out a bit to see more


Turn to the right


And head up Arsenalsgatan


Look around a bit


While moving


A bit more


It's close to the square now


Some final steps


Look up at Stora sällskapet which is a club for gentlemen


Turn to the right to look down Arsenalsgatan towards Kungsträdgården


Use the good eye


Turn around and look at the Douglaska palace from the 1670s


Look down Arsenalsgatan to the left of the palace


Turn around to see the square with the Fersenska palace to the centre right


Turn to the left


And back a bit to see one of the two horses on each short side of the square


Back some more


And there are some modern statues on the square too


Take a closer look at one of the two horse statues which is a copy of the horses found in Venice at St Mark's Square


Look up the square


And Look to the right to take a closer look at the Fersenska palace which oldest parts are from 1634. Ever heard of Axel von Fersen? Marie Antoinettes lover. The palace bears his family name.


The Palace has got an inner yard and then it looks like this from the other side facing the water, the walk will eventually end up on stallgatan to the right


Turn back to have a look down the square


Turn to the right


And more to the right to have a look at the Hornska palace from the 1600s


Move up the square


And turn around to have a look back down the square


Walk backwards a bit and look at the second horse on this side of the square


Turn to the right and look down Stallgatan and Nybroviken at the end


A bit closer


Turn to the right and look down Blasieholmsgatan


A bit more to the right to see the sign of what used to be the Royal hotel nowdays the back of Grand hotel


Turn some more to the right to look down Stallgatan


And turn around to have a look at the Bååtska palace built between 1662–1669


Look closer


Walk down backwards


Turn around and walk down Stallgatan


A bit longer with the Fersenska palace we saw earlier just visible on the right side


And end up having the royal castle on the other side of the water
