An intense one-night-festival took place in Stockholm last Saturday.
The purpose was to show the rich cultural life of the city. Overwhelmed by the huge programme in venues all over town I choose a few events: A boys’ choir, singing Vivaldi in the German Church, a hiphop group in the Old Town and a fashion and music show at the Nobel Museum.
Afterwards, along with my friends, I walked to the gorgeous City Hall to join the dance. There were thousands of people. The ceiling was illuminated and the light in the Golden Hall was magic. And if you ever come here: The city hall with its amazing mosaic walls by Einar Forseth is definitely worth exploring. Ailsa’s Travel Theme of the week is Glow.
“The Stockholm City Hall is one of Sweden’s most famous buildings, and one of the capital’s most visited tourist attractions. It houses offices for 200 people including the Municipal Council, and is also famous for its grand ceremonial halls and unique art pieces. The Stockholm City Hall is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet held on 10 December each year.” (from the official website)
