The Globe arena as seen from Götgatan. As we have noted before, the Globe is the world's largest spherical building. If you look very closely, you should see a small ball on top of the big ball. That's our newest attraction, a gondola made of glass that takes you up along the outside.

Showtime at Solna konståkning (Solna Figure Skating Club). These kids are so talented. They move with the greatest of ease over the slippery surface, in sync with each other and with the music. See more?

19 km north-west of the city and with some 12000 residents, Kallhäll is part of Järfälla Municipality. The old-style outdoor shopping center (out of view here, to the left) is rather worn and gloomy. In the background are more recent buildings along Källtorpsvägen, symbolically highlighted by the afternoon sun. And then there's an old tree which has seen architectural styles come and go.

Snow in all shapes and sizes. Behind piles of snow, lumps of snow being plowed off the motorway have rolled down making these tracks in... snow, of course!

After decades of inter-municipal squabbling, the old winding railroad to Kungsängen was finally replaced in 2001. Part of the project was crossing the strait Almarestäket. You have already seen this bridge from below and - as usual - there's more over here.

Situated 19 km east of the city center, Gustavsberg (pop. 9700) is the administrative center of Värmdö Municipality. Here's the church from 1906 in neo-Gothic style. See more?

Living in the modern age, we no longer have swords hanging directly over our heads by a single horse-hair. Far from it! How about a block of snow and ice slowly melting in the sun and ready to slide off the roof any minute?

Ice on Årstaviken ("Årsta Bay") and people get an urge to go out walking on water. The old mill in the background - Skanskvarn at Gullmarsplan - is now a restaurant. The mill was closed in 1882 and is registered at paranormal.se as being haunted by the friendly ghost Linda.
