ever changing, yet still the same


Back in 1967 trams disappeared from the city, to be replaced by buses and cars in the name of Progress. A couple of months ago they returned as the heritage tramway to Djurgården was symbolically extended to Sergel Square in the immediate city center with new tramcars and regular traffic to commence all year round.

Such is the face of Stockholm. Ever changing, yet still the same.

here we meet, party and die

Stureplan is one of the major party hubs in Stockholm and is the favourite playground for brats and the nouveau riche. The round thing is Svampen/the mushroom, a classic meeting place since 1937. In December 1994 four people were shot dead and 20 injured at the entrance to one of the night clubs here.

At least there are directions to be had here. The only thing now is - where to go....

Rio it's not

On a late summer night 16,000+ runners invaded parts of southern Stockholm for a 10km run - Midnattsloppet. They were preceded by Samba schools showing off their skills.

the show must go on

Eagerly waiting for the musical We will rock you to begin.

"Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It’s a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On Planet Mall all the musical instruments are banned..."

It will be a night filled with Queen music!
