Stockholm (central part of the city)


Let's look around the picture. The island in the middle is where the city started (Gamla Stan); the big square building is the Royal Palace. Just above it on a small island stands the Parliament. To the right of it (cross the bridge over Strömmen to the mainland) is the Opera House. The place with a lot of railway tracks is the central station, and to the left of it by the lake stands the City Hall, with its high red tower.
The other island in the lower right quarter of the image hosts the Museum of Modern Art (Moderna Museet). At the right border of the image, you can see Vasa Museum.

Image of the whole Stockholm is also available.
