Stockholm Stadshus is where the Municipal Council for the City of Stockholm meets. It stands on the eastern tip of Kungsholmen island, next to Riddarfjärden's northern shore and facing the islands of Riddarholmen and Södermalm. It is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet and one of Stockholm's major tourist attractions.The building was inaugurated in 1923 and is designed around two open spaces, a piazza called Borgargården on the eastern side, and the Blå hallen to the west. The southeast corner of the building, immediately adjacent to the shore, is marked by a monumental tower topped by the Three Crowns, an old national symbol for Sweden. The tower is 106 metres high and is accessible by an elevator or by a stair of 365 steps. The eastern side of its base is decorated with a faux tomb and gold-plated sarcophagus of Birger Jarl. When visiting the Stadshus, don't miss the small park between the building and Lake Mälaren's shore where several sculptures awaits.

The #stockholm city hall is definitely worth paying a visit when you are there for a #holiday
This building is the host of many activities, meetings and exhibitions in Stockholm and if you like to visit inside, you will need to join a tour they conduct. Nonetheless, the exterior is also worth checking out as it is beautifully constructed, and it has really good views of the river and the city skyline. you can also catch nice sunset from there. From the city hall, you can also stroll down the river to have a meal at one of the restaurants or cafes there.
To reach there, there are many buses that go that way, including the Stockholm hop on and hop off bus.
Founded in 1911, the Stockholm City Hall was completed in 12 years and is the most important work in Swedish architecture. On both sides of the building, there is a tower that stands tall and stands in a strong contrast with the podium that runs along the water surface. With the decorative long vertical window, the whole building is like a big ship sailing, magnificent. Located on the shores of Lake Mlaren in the heart of the Swedish capital, Stockholm City Hall is the image and representative of Stockholm and the office of the city's municipal council. Unfortunately, there was a private private event on the day. We didn't have access to the indoors, but the outdoor was like a huge garden, and we could sit on the water. After climbing the tower, you can also take in the sights of Stockholm.
The City Hall on the shores of Lake Mlaren is a landmark in Stockholm and was designed and built in 1911. Designed by the famous Swedish architect Genal Osterber, the City Hall combines the architectural features of the Swedish town of Lacko Castle with the Venetian Government. The city hall, covered in a brick red coat, has a 106-meter-tall minaret with three golden crowns, a symbol of the Kingdom of Sweden; it also symbolizes the three member states that formed the Kalmar League - Dian, Denmark and Norway. .
When you walk into the entrance of the hall, there will be a guide who will lead you into the first floor of the hall: the "Blue Room" famous for its Nobel Prize. Every December 10th is the most glorious day in Sweden. It is the day of the Nobel Prize awards. The focus of the world is gathered at the Nobel Prize Awarding Ceremony of the City Music Hall. After the award ceremony, it was a grand banquet for the Nobel Prize winners. At the moment, not only the Swedish royal family and all officials, but also many world-renowned physicists, chemists and economists.
Gorgeous halls, all built from red bricks. In this "Blue Room Blue Hall", we can't seem to find a little blue, and in fact this blue hall originally planned to use lime to cover the bricks. One of the most magnificent "Golden Halls" is truly shocking. The four walls are made up of more than 18 million gold-plated mosaics, painted with the Swedish royal family and people's life scenes.

The green climbing wall tiger and the red brick wall in the inner courtyard complement each other, adding a bit of agility to the city hall. We also participated in the sightseeing tour of the City Hall. Under the guidance of the lecturers, we visited the Blue Hall, the Parliament Hall, the Prince Gallery, and the Golden Hall where the Nobel dinner was held. The whole journey took about an hour or so. I heard a lot of allusions and grew. Very rare, very recommended.
