Stockholm, Sweden photo essay

Walking through the streets of Stockholm, Sweden, feels like what I imagine walking through medieval Europe would have been like. The buildings are tall and grand with cobblestone streets. Arches line the alleyways while statues and fountains are present in every town square.

While the architecture acts as a time machine, the inhabitants of Stockholm are probably the trendiest I’ve ever come into contact with: high-end shops are littered with beautiful blonde Swedes in impossibly tall heels regardless of the weather. In a nutshell Stockholm manages to be historic and completely modern all at the same time.

    I would love to go to Sweden. I hear it is an awesome place. The closest I have got to it is Copenhagen, which I also loved too. Maybe one day I will get there.

    I haven’t seen many photos of Stockholm, but I had a concept in my head that the architecture was much more modern. These photos look so similar to the ones I took while living in Glasgow, Scotland. It is so interesting to see the juxtaposition of the old buildings and the trendy people!
