Stockholm City Hall Tourist Attraction

Stockholm City Hall

One of the symbols of Sweden, the attraction of Stockholm, the political center of the capital, is the Stockholm City Hall built of dark brick in 1911-1923 according to the project of Ragnar Östberg. Its main feature is the construction material. It is the brick, which was decided not to cover with plaster neither outside nor inside, because its natural color and texture looked really great, and it becomes more and more impressive in the course of time. The restrained and austere facades of the ground side of the tower are juxtaposed with the "South" galleries facing the water. There are administration offices and city halls for receptions and ceremonies in the Stockholm City Hall.

The 106-meter-high tower crowns this architectural structure. It is visible from afar. The tower has a gilded spire topped with three gold crowns. If you go up this tower, you will enjoy unforgettable panoramic view of the "floating city", as people call Stockholm. Two halls of the building are opened for visitors— the Golden and the Blue ones. The Golden hall is named after the golden mosaics, with which the floor and walls of the hall are tiled. The Blue hall area is comparable to the area of a football field: 1600 sq. m.. Every year, Nobel prize winners and invited guests gather here for a dinner party.

You can enjoy Swedish cuisine in the cellar of the town hall, which has the feel of the past centuries .
