We have arrived in Stockholm very early in the morning, before the sun rises over the water.
The city is situated on 14 islands.
There are majestic architecture, numerous palaces, many outdoors statues and old-fashioned street lanterns here.
In other words, This is the capital of the Last Empire.
The monumental building of parliament is surrounded with straight walls of the channel.
It is really a palace.
We have met the sunrise with the Hermes bronze statue. It is wearing only sandals and the helmet.
Rocky streets of the old city.
The tiny park is ornate with flowers.
And the cycle roads are before start of traffic.
The vintage motorcycle is parked in the picturesque cobbled street.
We have met the Russian tourists. It seemed to me there are more of them in Antalya than in Northland.
It’s time! We have to plan the next route.
But the comfortable café looks so seducing.
We have found the poult of sparrow. I believe he survived that day!
At last, the most famous sightseeing of Stockholm is the Skansen. This is the first open-air museum in the world.
