Founded in 1891, Stockholm’s Skansen is Europe’s original open-air folk museum — the first in what became a Europe-wide movement to preserve traditional architecture. Inside Skansen’s buildings, locals talk about Swedish life. One wealthy farmer shows off his fine dishes and explains how he made his money by growing flax, which was then used to produce linen for undergarments (making heavy woollens more comfortable to wear).

Storkyrkan was first mentioned in 1279, and became a Lutheran Protestant church in 1527. It has also been the cathedral of Stockholm since 1942. The last Swedish king to be crowned here was Oscar II in 1873. The most famous of its treasures is the dramatic wooden statue of Saint George (1489). The statue, commissioned to commemorate the Battle of Brunkeberg (1471), also serves as a reliquary, containing relics supposedly of Saint George and two other saints. From Dennis Jarvis's Flicker

Stockholm Court House (Swedish: Stockholms Rådhus) is situated on Kungsholmen in Central Stockholm, Sweden. The building was constructed between 1909 and 1915. The architecture is influenced by the Castles of the Vasa era and it bears a resemblance to Vadstena Castle. The building is connected to Stockholm Police House through a culvert. A fire ravaged the third floor of the south/left wing of the building in June 2008. Dennis Jarvis's Flicker
