The humble railfan in Stockholm

Recommended Posts

My second or third Stockholm thread?

 

But yes, went there for a long weekend just before christmas and figured I'd post the pics.

Maybe there's something new for you.

There's a bathing house on the right. You pay a small fee and get access to a wooden bridge, ladders and so. Very nice in the summer. Winterclosed.

Are you going to take a trip over there in the Summer Pet?

 

 

The escalators in the Copenhagen train station are real steep like this and they give me vertigo like a mother fucker.

What do you mean by 'experimental' part of town? I assume it is some sort of planned community thing, but is it subsidized housing? co-op?

Some text about Hammarby Sjöstad

 

From wiki:

Although the south and east part of Hammarby Sjöstad is located outside what is traditionally considered to be the perimeter of inner-city Stockholm, the design is intentionally urban rather than suburban, with boulevards, clearly defined and architecturally varied city blocks, and commercial spaces in the ground floor of the buildings. The location, next to the lake Hammarby Sjö and a canal, Sickla Kanal, has allowed for plenty of quays and walkways along the water.

 

Just a cosy, lit-up modern area with lots of young people moving around. Many buildings only for the studying.
