Let Me Take You by the Hand...

...and lead you through some streets of Stockholm...

Steets, parts where I nowadays walk far to seldom, I should do it more often, such a nice walk by the water and such pretty views over the city. Not to mention, we did spot quite a few interesting waterholes ie cafés along the way too... The part of town being the district of Kungsholmen.

First late lunch at Vurma - Polhemsgatan 15 - very tasty grilled sandwich with halloumi, lemon and herbs. And the mouthwatering cardamom buns had to come along in a paper bag for consumption whilst watching Midsomer Murders tonight...

Now, comfy shoes on? Let's begin walking, down at Norr Mälarstrand...

Don't forget the pretty houses to your left. Can't help but wonder about the size of the statues up there, and what might happen on a very, very windy day...

Quite the view from that outdoor bathtub on deck...

You've now reached the beautiful City Hall - Stadshuset - where the annual Nobel Prize festivities are held

View over Riddarholmen, from one of the most frequently used picturetaking spots in Stockholm...?

At Stadshuset - City Hall, overlooking parts of Klarabergsleden and the Central station area

Golden Boy - Birger Jarl's cenotaph at the City Hall. Birger Jarl is said to be the founder of Stockholm in the 13th century

If your feet aren't to tired from all that walking, perhaps some shopping sounds interesting once you've reached the pedestrian street of Drottninggatan...? If you don't mind the crowds...

A jolly good walk and eloquently captured as well, Pia. All that’s missing is some cheese cake! :)

Thanks, Per! That's true, a nice piece of cheesecake somewhere along that walk would probably have been the icing-on-the beautiful-day-cake:)
