Stockholms Stadshus | Stockholm City Hall (Stockholms Stadshus)

One of the most beautiful in the world. It took eight million red bricks to make architect Ragnar Östberg’s vision come true in 1923. The venue for the annual Nobel Prize award ceremony dinner in December. At the southeastern tip of Kungsholmen island. Hard to miss.

Het #stadhuis is ontworpen door Ragnar Östberg, Zwedens bekendste architect. Het gebouw dat pal aan het water staat, is opgetrokken uit meer dan acht miljoen dieprode stenen en negentien miljoen mozaïektegels. #Stockholm

Medieval Cities (Sweden). 'It’s hard to overstate the beauty of the Hanseatic port town of Visby, in itself justification for making the quick ferry trip to Gotland. The city walls, with 40-plus towers and the spectacular church ruins within, are a travel photographer’s dream, and make an ideal scenic stroll. The city is also a food-lover’s heaven, packed with top-notch restaurants accustomed to impressing discriminating diners.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/sweden
