THE CRUISING LIFE – TWENTY FIRST CRUISE – STOCKHOLM

It is long past time to get back to our cruise documentary. The past post saw us in St Petersburg and after two days there we next headed for Stockholm, Sweden. We had hoped to meet up with our cruise friends from Stockholm, Sven & Sol, but as luck would have it they were off on a cruise of their own!

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Ferries and sightseeing boats shuttle passengers between the islands. There is so much to do and see that it is impossible to take it all in in one day.

Here is some of what we experienced:

Fersenska Palaace
Harbor View
Modern Art Museum
The Sirishov
Skeppsholmen Island
Stureplan Square
THE WALDEMARSUDDE OIL MILL
