  • A few facts about the Stockholm City Hall. The city Hall was built 12 years: from 1911 to 1923 the architect of the town hall – Ragnar Ostberg. About 8 million bricks were spent on the building. Bricks were made in the old fashioned way, according to the same technology as for medieval churches and monasteries. Hence the name "monastic brick". The height of the city Hall Tower 106 meters. At the very top of the tower lead exactly 365 steps. In winter time the passage to the tower is closed. The tower is crowned with three crowns – an ancient symbol of Sweden. Ordinary tourists are allowed to the town hall only in an organized manner with excursion. Excursions with Russian guides almost no (basically, it is organized excursions with traveling on cruise liners). In the town hall we dreamed of getting there after the first stay in Stockholm.

  • We've made the visit. The pity is that all the visits are guided and until the summer there is in Spanish. With a medium-low level of English, you understand everything. At least with the guide who touched us. It is very interesting the explanations that give and especially for the symbolism that has, to be where they celebrate and dance the Nobel Prize. It's worth it

  • I went here to attend an invitation for an international master student welcoming event, sort of. The building is beautiful. The red-brick color, or whatever it’s called, I love it 😍 It’s used by Stockholm city council for important events. Some politicians also work here. I was just inside the building at that time, but now I come to explore the outside views. And it as beautiful as the interior. A must visit ❤️
  • It's important that the most beautiful monument in Stockholm it's the city's Hall. Gives a pretty good idea of swedish culture. That being said the place it's nice with it's red bricks and walking through the porches towards the sea gives a very nice view of the postcard-like landscape in front of the Hall. On nice sunny days it's worth taking a walk along the seaside, maybe sitting in one of the benches that are right on the water. Good for picnics during spring.
