The City Hall of Stockholm, Sweden, celebrates after the Nobel Prize Ceremony. The whole wall of the golden hall was covered with gold foil. The blue hall for dinner is not blue, and the whole hall is red brick, because the designer stopped painting at the last moment when he thought it was still red.
Amazing building! The National Museum is moving so check their website, from February 2013
It´s a big place so it will take you a day
The Nationalmuseum is the largest art museum in Sweden. Its collection encompasses artwork from the late Middle Ages to the early 20th century including paintings, sculptures, and applied art. The museum is set at a fabulous location on the Blasieholmen peninsula, across the Strömmen bay from the Royal Palace. The museum's paintings collection spans the period from the 16th century up to the early 20th century with works from masters such as Rubens, Rembrandt, Goya and Gauguin. One of the highlights is the 'Lady with the Veil', a 1769 work by Swedish artist by Alexander Roslin. Sculptures are installed throughout the museum, including works from Auguste Rodin and Swedish sculptor Johan Tobias Sergel.
There are many paintings in the Swedish National Museum. Time flies by in a hurry.
Although the exterior looks not so good, but the collection is still very impressive, including Rembrandt's late masterpiece Batavernas Trohtsed till Claudius, as well as Rubens, Gauguin and other great masters of painting, in short, like art painting here is not to be missed.
