In the centre of Stockholm is the island of Gamla Stan (actually an area consisting of several islands, for the pedants out there), the old town. While I was walking around I happened upon the Nobel Museum, which was having an open day. So I took a look inside. I guess the biggest surprise (for me at least, I'm sure you all know this) was to find that Alfred Nobel made his money from the manufacture of explosives.
On the other side of Kungsholmen is an area called Marieberg - I walked through Rålambshovsparken and across the bridge toward Långholmen.
Nearest to Långholmen on the island of Södermalm is an area called Hornstull. This is where Högalids kyrka is. Among other things. The waterfront here looking toward Liljeholmen is beautiful, with The Street market nestled under the road bridge and a pair of railway bridges in the distance.
A happy post

Trying to find my way out of Arlanda Airport upon return from my travels over the holidays I found theres a rune stone on display in terminal 5 - it was found, if I remember correctly, during the building of the road from Stockholm to the airport and moved to its current place of display.
"Gunnarr and Bjôrn and Þorgrímr raised this stone in memory of Þorsteinn, their brother, who was dead in the east with Ingvarr, and made this bridge."
