Sunset over The Knights’ Islet by radovan77

Beautiful sunset over City Hall, Riddarholmen, Gamla Stan Stockholm (Sweden)

Riddarholmen (Swedish: “The Knights’ Islet”) is a small islet in central Stockholm. The island forms part of Gamla Stan, the old town, and houses a number of private palaces dating from the 17th century. The main landmark is the church Riddarholmskyrkan, the royal burial church since the 17th century and where a number of Swedish monarchs lie buried.

Stockholm in my heart by IrinaJonsson

View from helihopter over Stockholm.
The feeling of sitting in a helicopter is amazing, especially when sitting up front, close to the pilot.
Visibility from the helicopter was magnificent. There are no wings in the way, and the visibility is thus virtually unobstructed in all directions.
Helicopter Tours starts from Bromma airport. The flight was made towards Stockholms heart- Old town.
We continued to fly over Solna, Norra Djurgården, Lidingö, Nacka.
Hammarby , Djurgården, Skansen, Skeppsholmen, Old Town with Kunliga castle, Riddarfjärden with City Hall.
It’s amazing what a nice city I live.
