Swedish Girl Fashion
Swedish Girl Fashion. (novala)

I don't know why that is - but in Sweden it seems that more than in any other country I know young girls and old girls dress the same. Right now it's the leggings-and-skirt/Tunika-style.

A friend told me that Swedish people try to be equal and on way to express this is that people all ages dress similar. (simplfied version)
Klipspringer: Please comment on that.

Stockholm's Waterfront

I am a sailboat lover. Not very many knew until this moment that sailing vessels make my heart jump. When I was a kid I could name every sail on a bark. If I were to live in Stockholm, I'd spend a lot of time at the waterfront.

New Stockholm City Center
The new center of Stockholm was described to me as post communist style. I agree. It partly reminded me of Bucarest and Dresden.

Demonstration square. I heard that this is a place where everybody can express his/her opinion in public. When I was there, Iranians demonstrated against the new government in Iran.

Gamla Stan - the Old Stockholm
Gamla Stan is the old, the medieval part of Stockholm. On this pretty little island you will find the royal palace, narrow streets, and zillions of tourists.

Gamla Stan, Stockholm. (novala)

Why is it that in Stockholm benches are arranged as if people were in a movie theater? I noticed that elsewhere in the city, too.

A Must-See: Vasa Museum Stockholm
What I wanted to see in Stockholm the most - apart from Aleksandra - was the Vasa Museum. I wanted to know what a ship looks like that sank in 1628 after 1.5 km on its first journey and was found in 1956.

This ship is absolutely impressive and you will stare at it like the spectators watching it on its only trip hundreds of years ago.

This a rather large miniature of the Vasa, showing it's assumed original colors.

Even if you travel to Stockholm and see nothing but this museum, it will be worth it.

Sweden
I had the opportunity to extend a business trip to Stockholm and stay over the weekend. Not only did I meet my dear friend Aleksandra from Niš, but also met a troll. More soon.
