Stockholm #4

how wonderful some of you seem to enjoy this Stockholm recap with me

I promised you shopping ~ but totally forgot we did something else on day four as well

as it was June 6, the national holiday of Sweden!

we ate the traditional cake with woodland strawberries and cream ~ absolutely delicious

watch that cute little girl in traditional clothing, may be a little bit too much, but still she looks adorable

the royal palace on Gamla Stan (old city) was open for free that day

the fiance and I tried out the royal balcony and thought the view is quite nice

inside there was, among other beautiful things, an exhibition of statues in long hallways, very pretty

and we watched the parades on the royal square with lots of horses and traditional music

as you can see, we were again very lucky with the weather

have a lovely new week!

now for real: shopping pictures in a next post
