Stockholm By Day and By Night – A Stunning City In Pictures

These pictures were taken in the Summer over the course of two days in Stockholm.  Stockholm is just an amazingly beautiful, walkable city.  The color of the sky, the buildings, the streets all provided for so much visual interest and richness.  You can read more about doing Stockholm by day and night in our blog posts on this topic.
