The Södertälje Syd railway station, situated on the two kilometres long and 48 meters high Igelsta bridge, has its own IATA code. So the next time you want to go to Södertälje, book your flight to XEZ. Below is the E4 motorway.

At Vreten subway station cubes of blue skies penetrate cave walls as well as the platform itself. The artist Takashi Naraha wanted to emphasize balancing opposites. Therefore, glimpses of skies here in the underground and - indeed - also a dark cube of diabase rock outside the station entrance, above ground. A yin yang perspective in Solna.

Blocks of flats in Hagalund, Solna, just north of Stockholm. This particular area is nick-named Blåkulla (Blockula) as the houses are blue (blå) and they are on a hill (kulle). Blåkulla is otherwise where the Devil holds his Earthly court during a witches' Sabbath.

My favourite graphical designer, Lotta Külhorn, shows some of her famous patterns in the subway at Zinkensdamm station. The pattern on this specific one is a radish which is very common in Sweden and known by the name rädisa (of the beet root family). I love the pattern and the colours but most of all Ms Külhorn's pun when she named the pattern root map (rotkatalog).

You could take the bike to Ugglevikskällan in Lill-Jansskogen, near Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan. It's originally an old fresh water spring, used in the 18th century as a day trip spa-resort. In the 19th century people from Stockholm gathered there on the first Saturday after Whitsun to drink the healthy water.
The area around Lill-Jansskogen has always been associated with drinking, but perhaps even more so by the notorious pub hosted by the royal huntsman Jan Persson, called Lill-Jans in the 17th century. Nowadays both the pub and the fresh water spring are long gone. But the little pavilion still stands. And it's still a popular place for an outing.

Charles XIII & II (Swedish: Carl XIII) (7 October 1748 - 5 February 1818), was King of Sweden (as Charles XIII) from 1809 and King of Norway (as Charles II) from 1814 until his death. One statue, two kings.
Even though I'm of that age that I had to learn our kings by heart in school, I say what on earth would I do without Wikipedia?
