Woo-hoo! It started of with Götet and then came Malmoe, but now it's time for Eken!

Starting of with the suburban shots...
(All pics are from hitta.se)

1. Where it all began. The City that came before the city that came before Stockholm: Birka. Only city in Sweden at the time (Viking age), before Swēþiuð became Sverige. Not much left now, you can kinda make out where the City Wall was.


2. World's largest IKEA


3. Skogskyrkogården, a World Heretige site with it's own subway station - and thousands of dead people.


4. A few of the commieblocks in Tensta


5. 2km from Tensta - Kista in da housizzle!


6. Where some of the ferries to Finaland dock


7. The Globe Arena (and two more stadia), with its subway and LRT station


8. Sundbyberg, an older urban suburb


9. much of suburbia looks like this too.


Time for the Inner City :)

10. On the edge of the Inner City. Plans are to expand the urbanity all the way across the area in the pic.


11.Also on the edge, KTH (the Royal Institute of Technology) and the terminus for a narrow-guage suburban railway


12. Södersjukhuset aka SöS, the big hospital on Södermalm (Southside)


13. More Södermalm


14. Even more Södermalm, Medis to be exact.


15. Slussen, where Södermalm meets the Old Town


16. The Palace in the Old Town, the Riksdag on its own island and alot of other goverment buildings


17. plenty of water in the Inner City


18. Gröna Lund (the tivoli) and Skansen (open-air museum/zoo)


19. Östermalm (eastside)


20. Centralen, Sweden's main transit hub (inter-city rail, commuter rail, subways, inter-city busses & night-busses to the suburbs)


21. Odenplan (Odin square) a center up in the northern parts of the Inner City


22. Vasastan's (Vasa-town, named for the kings, not the finnish city) density is second to none in Sweden.


23. "City" as we call our downtown. Maybe it confuses english-speakers, but that's just part of the fun!


SLUT :cheers:
