Stockholm, Sweden’s capital city is a great place. Like Bergen in Norway and Helsinki Finland which I have visited before, I think all Scandinavian cities are on a archipelago, an urban mesh of highways and buildings seated on top of a collection of islands and rivers separating land. The Swedish government’s buildings straddle these rivers.
Christianity has been a great foundational part of Scandinavian life, even if the country is mostly secular these days. The Johannes Klockstapel is an old church from 1692.
