Summer memories: Stockholm in May






Stockholm looks pretty even on a cloudy day. :) These snaps were shot in the middle of May.






Helgeandsholmen is a small island in central Stockholm. Together with Riddarholmen, it forms Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm.

The terrace in the eastern end is called Strömparterren. It was Stockholm’s first public park, opened in 1832 to the general public, with whom it quickly found favour. There was a café, and concerts were often arranged in the park. It's said that in those times there were clear class differences between the parks of Stockholm. Humlegården was for the common people, Kungsträdgården for the “beau monde”. Strömparterren seems to have been a place where everyone could go.  :)

  1. Looks like a lovely capital. I have never visited Scandavia but I am sure I would find the whole area very appealing. Lovely series of pictures.

  4. Ihana katsella kukkaistutuksia, kun juuri tulin sisään lumitöistä :D

    Stockholm är en jätteskön stad.

    Komeaa arkkitehtuuria.

  9. My daughter visited Stockholm a few years ago and loved the city. It looks very walkable, with lots of interesting sights. The little blue forget-me-nots are such pretty flowers. We all need a little brightness in our lives today - thanks for this glimpse of summer.

  11. Näitä juuri tarvitaan nyt kun koleat tuulet puhaltavat ja päivän valoisa aika käy yhä vähemmäksi. Voi noita lemmikkejä - ne ovat nyt tämän postauksen "lemmikkejä"! Ponnistellaan marraskuussa!

      Idag är det alldeles vitt och massor med snö ute... kanske också i Eskilstuna.
      Ha det bra!

      The beautiful building is the Parliament House (Riksdagshuset), constructed between 1897 and 1905.

  24. Beautiful photos! My favourite is the first, the flowers with the bridge on the background. I really enjoyed the little historical information. :-) I like these cloudy days. I think they are the best to walk around the city.
