Drove past the road in front of Kungliga Operan or the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. Did not really watch any performance there. Just an admirer of the building´s architectural design. It´s a building that one would never miss.

In my understanding The Royal Opera is Sweden's national stage for opera and ballet. Unfortunately we only had the chance to pass by it, just enough to admire its magnificent exterior built in the Renaissance style. If you have the time tough, check out at...More

Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
