It is popular to stroll along Strandvägen boulevard - "a street unparalleled in Europe". It takes you along the waterfront all the way from the city centre to Djurgården. The boulevard was made ready to the Stockholm Exhibition in 1897.

It does look like a wonderful place to enjoy the sea, good friends, artists working, boating, eating, drinking...

Nice shot, too.
