About the Book
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden and known as the jewel of the Baltic is often referred to as the Venice of the North. It is also a regal city which gives off an air of elegance. The city is set across 14 main islands which are connected by over 50 bridges.
Stockholm’s harbour opens into a huge archipelago with over 24,000 islands and inlets jutting out into the Baltic Sea, with some 50,000 summer homes and chalets which are reached by some 250,000 private registered boats.
It is through this expanse of natural beauty, created in the last Ice Age which our cruise ship entered and exited at dawn and dusk taking around 3 hours affording a visual feast of ever changing scenery.
This book contains my personal story, told mainly in pictures, which tries to capture not only the cityscapes, buildings, cobbled streets etc. but also the people and the moods and the emotions. This book is for all to enjoy. BB
