To PaulVDV: crowds

Thank you Paul,

Hello,
I remember the tomb of the unknown soldier, but nothing else. Only the park behind it and the street in front.

To jmdias: friendship

Thank you Jorge,
In this case "friendship" was regarded a Communist cliché, which didn't sound well in the new political climate after 1989. The bridge was designed and built by the Soviet Union....

To kasianowak: good news

Hello Kasia,
Thank you for your kind comments. You have been silent for so long that I almost started worrying that you had in fact worked yourself to death. Or disappeared in Mongolia.

To alvaraalto: oslo

Thanks Rob,
In this case it's not really about being a progressive city, or that we wouldn't like to lag behind Oslo. The old Slussen was in such a bad condition that it could really have collapsed...
