Photographer's Note

This is the Strandvägen waterfront of Stockholm. Strandvägen connecting the city centre with Östermalm and Djurgården.

Östermalm is one of the older areas of Stockholm where you can find many of these office/residential buildings in all kind of soft pastel colors.
Strandvägen leads you straight to the center of the city and from the POV it takes only a 15-20 minute walk to Kungsträdgården or Sergelstorg which both are in the middle of the centre.

Djurgården which is on the left side of the POV is part of the Nationalstadsparken. A national park within the Stockholm city limits and contains the eastern green lungs of Stockholm. On Djurgården you will find Skansen, one of the oldest open air museums in the world and the Vasamuseum which is frequently visited by TE members and the best museum of Stockholm if not Sweden if you ask me. The Vasa was build by some Dutch and unfortunately sank on its maiden voyage after only a few hundred meters beacuse of only a little windshear while having too little ballast in the belly. You can find a very good photo of the Vasa in Tatadalou's gallery) (Sorry for the shameless plugg but I don't have a photo of my own).

Scanned from slide. No sources needed, I lived in Stockholm for 2,5 years.
