Probably my favourite spot on my recent holiday (although there were many other great ones :)): on top of Stockholm town hall tower!
SJ X2000 high speed train is leaving Stockholm Central Station down South to Gteborg as train 441 at 16:10 over the bridge North of the historic city center, Gamla Stan. In the background a heavy rain shower pours down on the harbour and several big Baltic Sea ferries.
Note that Stockholm is situated at the sea and on a lake, the water in the foreground is actually a lake.
For a little Stockholm sightseeing: the first big building from left on a separate island (not the smaller one in front) is the Swedish parliament. Behind and to the right of it you can see the King's castle (as Sweden is a monarchy, of course still in service, at least for representative purposes. Also went on a visit there, all rooms are decorated historically except for one which is used for receptions - it looks like the King is also buying his stuff from IKEA! ;))
In the background of the castle you can see the leisure island Djurgarden (which means "zoo"), home to several attractions as the old "Wasa" ship and the open air museum "Skansen".
Look out for many more pictures from Scandinavia on the forum soon!
