Photographer's Note

Trying to find new areas for my almost daily walks on Södermalm I happened one day a month ago to arrive in a part of the island I seldom visit. I was surprised to find a floating restaurant where the guests could choose to have their meals inside transparent igloos.

The restaurant boat has been moored here for several years, but the attached pontoons with igloos are probably relatively new.

I thought the igloos were odd enough to require a couple of photos. A different view can be seen in the WS.

This is on the southern side of Södermalm. On both sides of the water (a narrow bay of the Baltic Sea) a new mainly residential area for about 25,000 inhabitants has been developed since the early 1990's. It is called Hammarby sjöstad (Hammarby Lake City). You can see a small glimpse of it in the background of this photo, a bit more in the WS.

The white buildings with the tall tower is a thermal power station. The building with the glass façade contains rented offices.

Several years ago I posted a couple of photos taken from across the water looking towards Södermalm. This was one of them:

The Map: view will show you where the floating restaurant is located.

And don't forget the WS!
