Evening Stockholm

After having a short rest at the hotel, we decided to make another hike - a walk through the city. During recent visits to Lithuania and Estonia, "the night theme" was perhaps the most vibrant part of the exploration of the city - both Vilnius and Tallinn are brightly lit at night making their views just fascinating. I expected to see something similar in

Stockholm

, but this time, the city fell short of my expectations - only a few buildings and spires have a slight lighting in the Old Town, and the rest of the city center is benighted. First, I was a little upset, but eventually, you realize that such a twilight has its own special charm.

Here we are on the waterfront:

This is a view from the steps of the Royal Palace:

Below you can see the pile of snow. For some reason, in that moment, we wanted some adventures and we climbed to the top of the pile and posed there a little for cameras. To our surprise, His Majesty did not curse from the window and even didn't call the guard, and we, being satisfied and happy, went further.

After dinner in the restaurant, with a sense of accomplishment, we headed to the hotel - we completed just a huge program during this day!

The next part is the story of a trip by boat to the island of Djurgarden, where we visited several museum ships, the museum of the sailboat called "Vasa" (I can say that this is one of the most interesting exhibits that I've ever seen before!), and had a long walk in the park called "

Skansen

", where we got acquainted with the Swedish national sights, and visited the zoo, where I even managed to pat a living symbol of Scandinavia.
