nocturne for Royal Viking


In the 1870's a new prominent street was created, aimed to be a grand entrance to the city for those having arrived by train at the new Stockholm Central railway station. Today Vasagatan ("Vasa Street") connects the Old town with the square Norra Bantorget and - as you can tell - it's not terribly busy on a Sunday morning. Seen here is Royal Viking Hotel, at the address Vasagatan 1.

Beautiful shot! What a great looking street.

On the building we can see the same kind of blue of the sky.

JM said...

Love the mysterious lights on the left building. Great shot!

Have you all got a favourite street in your city? I wouldn't exactly call Vasagatan a favourite of mine. Then again, I'm into rail traffic and it is certainly strategically located for train travellers.

Luis Gomez: Just goes to show, any street can become interesting in the right light...

VP: Evidently, it's a compatible hotel.

JM: An example of creative light design - I agree.

Thanks all for commenting! I hope you enjoyed this recent series of night shots.

Shot on a Sunday at 1.38 AM.

Halcyon: Many thanks for your support.

arabesque: Morning, as in "after Midnight"...

Jacob: On weekdays, this place is particularly crowded due to a major ongoing tunneling effort.

Appreciate your stopping by.
