Stockholm Lights

Monday, March 18, 2013

Stockholm is a beautiful city by day with church spires, brightly coloured stone and wooden buildings and water reflecting the sunlight.

But I loved it even more at night when the Swedes do all they can to light up the dark nights.

From small features like candles and backlit doorbell panels to floodlight buildings and large neon signs, the city glows.

I guess this is needed in a city where for several months there is more dark than daylight.

This reminds me too of the Christmas stars I saw in Gothenburg. (I even saw a few in Stockholm still hanging in March.)
