Our Stockholm tour guide, Dr. Fisher, is a professor of religion at the local university. Stockholm is the gateway between Lake Malaren and the Baltic Sea, so there are locks with adjacent islands, which are all part of the city. High speed surface trains were visible, noisily scurrying along their tracks, much like subways in London, except above ground, transporting people from place to place.
This view of the transom, shows some of the heavy relief carving. The wood had been painted and the museum had several samples which were restored to original appearance.
The Stockholm waters were full of all manner of interesting boats, work boats as well as pleasure craft. It's a spot that would fascinate any boater.
This is the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral. It's situated on a hill overlooking the harbor and is quite magnificent.
The Lutheran Cathedral, was designed by Carl Ludvig Engel. We went inside shortly before a service was to begin.
We took a 90 minute harbor tour on a small craft that just barely fit under several of the bridges like the one in this picture.
The sun was well up for our return walk back to the bus. The park is quite nice and popular with the residents.
