Sweden 1: Intro to Stockholm and Smaland

Sweden  1: Intro to Stockholm and Smaland

This program offers viewers a tour of the "floating city" of Stockholm, which is built on 14 islands. First, Stadhuset, this City Hall is the capital's center and the site of the annual Nobel Prize dinner; next is Kungliga Slottet, the Royal Palace, built in the 18th century and one of the largest palaces in Europe. We explore Gamla Stan, the Old Town that dates back to the 13th century; it is called the island of history in the heart of a modern city; then Riddarholmskyrkan, a baroque style church that has housed the tombs of the Swedish royalty for four centuries. In the province of Smaland we visit Kalmar Castle, constructed in the 16th century by King Vasa, which overlooks the Baltic Sea and has a few 12th-century towers incorporated into its walls; also Kalmar, the chief port, which was settled before pre-Viking times and is known as the "kingdom of crystal." 03/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
