Stockholm is also gateaway to the 24,000 of the archipelago and to Lake Mälaren with its castles, picturesque small towns and beautifull countryside.
Most of churches are open to the public and offer Swedishlanguage services at 11.00 on Sunday morning, with many also organising a packed programme of concertes. Some churches also hold services in English and other languages.
Stockholm Cathedral is situated in the old town and it had 700 years old and steeped in history: it was here that the first ever service in Swedish was held, herethat the first international church meeting was held in 1925, and here that King Carl XVI Gustaf married Silvia Sommerlath in 1976.

The expansion in the 19th century of the British Empire increased London’s influence still further. Since World War II the city’s prominence on the international stage has diminished, but it remains a flourishing financial centre and home to one of the world’s most important stock exchanges.
In addition, it is the foremost tourist destination in Britain, a centre of academic excellence, and one of the cultural capitals of the world—well deserving of the observation by Samuel Johnson that: “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”.
The term “City of London”, or “the City”, is applied only to a small area known as the Square Mile (2.59 sq km/1 sq mi) that was ...
To the west of Vincent Square, just off Victoria Street, you’ll find one of London’s most surprising churches, the stripey neo-Byzantine concoction of the Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral. Begun in 1895, it is one of the last and wildest monuments to the Victorian era: constructed from more than 12 million terracotta-coloured bricks, decorated with hoops of Portland stone, it culminate in a magnificent tapered campanile which rises to 274 feet.
Anonymous and congested it may be, but Piccadilly Circus is, for many Londoners, the nearest their city comes to having a centre. A much-altered product of Nash’s grand 1812 Regent Street plan, and now a major traffic bottleneck, it is by no means a picturesque place, despite a major clean-up in recent years. It’s probably best seen at night when the spread of illuminated signs gives it a touch of Las Vegas dazzle, and when the human traffic flow is at its most frenetic
Although it has declined in popularity today, the tradition of ...

After all or part of a forest is destroyed by a disturbance, such as fire or wind or avalanche, trees and other plants reinvade the area, halting erosion and nutrient loss and maintaining water quality. This series of changes in vegetation structure, known as ecological succession, will make the forest more suitable for some animals and plants and less suitable for others.
Numitor was deposed by his brother, who also tried to kill the twins by having them thrown into the Tiber. Instead, the infants washed ashore and were suckled by a she-wolf who became—and remains today—the symbol of Rome. When the brothers grew up, they restored Numitor to his throne and then founded a new city on the Palatine Hill above the river.

Urban Transportation The development of urban transportation has not changed with the cities; cities have changed with transportation. In the early years of transportation it was the mass transit of horse and buggies or electric rail cars that shaped cities. Then as the automobile became affordable to the public, personal transportation redefined the city as it was known. It is the automobile and the movement to the suburbs that has public transportation struggling to make money today. The very first transportation was with the horse. Then someone came up with the idea to pair a horse up with a buggy. Now four to six people could be carried at one time. These horse and buggies began to be common sight in cities and public transportation was born. Before the horse and buggy people were confined to the distance they could walk, so cities could not grow much. People lived in the central business district because that is where they worked. Now with the simple horse and ...

Vasa - corabia uriasa. Intr-o magnifica montare, muzeul Vasa expune uriasa carcasa a corabiei de razboi, cu acelasi nume, construita sub regele Gustav Adolf, dar esuata in ziua lansarii din anul 1628 si ranfluata abia 333 de ani mai tarziu, in 1961, si readusa, aproape miraculos, la starea de a putea oferi un fascinant tablou muzeal, alaturi de sutele de marfuri descoperite in compartimentele sale…
Dupa cum i-a ramas si numele, Insula Djurgarden era, inca din secolul
al XVI-lea, o minunata gradina, un parc rezervat numai membrilor
familiei regale, oferind si azi o oaza de liniste, prinde pajisti,
plantatii de flori si stejari, vile si baze nautice, dar acum pentru
toti cei un milion de locuitori ai orasului. S-a pastrat aici, pentru
vizitatorii contemporani, superba resedinta a celui care a fost
fratele regelui Gustav al V-lea, Printul Eugen, un talentat pictor
peisajist din prima jumatate a veacului 20, care a adunat in palatului
sau, alaturi de propriile-i creatii, multe picturi si sculpturi din
vremea sa. Dar atractiile prioritare pentru turistii straini sunt,
fara indoiala, cele trei muzee de renume international.
