The earliest mention of Stockholm in writing dates from 1252, when it was an important post in the iron trade from the mines in Bergslagen. The city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl in order to protect Sweden from invasion from the sea by foreign navies, and to stop pillage of the cities such as Sigtuna on Lake Malaren. The strategic and economic importance of the city made Stockholm an important factor in relations between the Danish Kings of the Kalmar Union and the national independence movement in the 15th century.
With the accession of Gustav Vasa in 1523 and the founding of a royal power, the population of Stockholm began to grow, reaching ten thousand by 1600. The 17th century saw Sweden rise into a major European power, which was reflected in the development of the city.
In the late 20th century, Stockholm became a modern, technologically-advanced and ethnically diverse city. I think you included just the right amount of water in the foreground to frame the attractive old buildings of the city.
Absolutely amazing shot, with excellent POV, the colours and lights are perfect, very beautiful city. Je me demande ou tu etais pour prendre une photo avec tant d'altitude, en tous cas, le POV est devient genial, panoramique. You have got an unparallel view here, almost as if you are shooting from an aeroplane but the sharpness and wonderful clarity tells me that is not so. Excelent the colors adjustments on this pic from this very intesresting architecture place. Impresionante vista de esta ciudad, me gusta la perspectiva y la intensidad de los colores, la composicion es muy buena, el cielo tiene exceso de ruido, pero no perjudica a la imagen, bello trabajo y gran tiro amigo.

Adjacent to Gamla Stan, some just a short walk away, are other islands which are home to museums and trendy shopping and dining spots, such as Södermalm. The first part of the name (stock) means log, while the second (holm) means islet, and refers to the islet Stadsholmen in central Stockholm which for centuries consistituted the main part of Stockholm. After the end of the Great Northern War and the destruction of several areas of the city in 1721, the city stagnated. New industries emerged, and Stockholm transformed into an important trade and service centre, as well as a key gateway point within Sweden. Throughout the century, many industries shifted away from work-intensive activities into more high-technology and service-industry knowledge-based areas. The church steeples rising above the buildings & the approaching ship makes this a very attractive picture. Together with a team of amazing people, we're committed to make hiring talent simple, fun and efficient.
Across the way are two small islands: Riddarholmen with its stately, shapely, pastel-colored buildings, is in the foreground. This section is also home to the Parliament House (Riksdagshuset) and the Royal Palace, complete with the Changing of the Guard. Nearby, on Kungsholmen, is the State House, where it is possible to climb the belltower for a majestic view of Stockholm, old and new.


On November 8, 1520, massive executions of opposition figures, called the Stockholm Bloodbath, took place. It is well framed showing many beauties like the sea entrances, the ship, architectures and this pretty blue sky. Stockholm is renowned for both its beauty and cultural heritage, with international activities ranging from a water festival to the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize for literature.
This massacre set off further uprisings, which eventually led to the break-up of the Kalmar Union. Trading rules were also created that gave Stockholm an essential monopoly over trade between foreign merchants and other Swedish and Scandinavian territories. However, Stockholm maintained its role as the political centre of Sweden and continued to develop culturally under Gustav III. It is also home to the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet), churches, an historic town square, and numerous ships and grand hotels along the water's edge. This includes museums as well as competitions of all sorts in the water - something for everyone. In the 19th century, a number of scientific institutes opened in Stockholm, for example the Karolinska Institute.
