This page is dedicated to Stockholm´s
many views, offering many opportunities for skyline photographing. However, Stockholm´s
skyline is not big. The
tallest buildings are just over 100 meters and many of the highrises are not so goodlooking, but there are many beautiful churches and other historic
buildingstowering and the tall city hall is visible from many places. Also Kaknästornet, Sweden's tallest TV tower, is visible from some angles.
In the suburb of Kista, Stockholm's first "real skyscraper", only second in height to Turning Torso, has been constructed, and the tall Victoria Tower is
underconstruction next to it.
This part is from August 2010,when the weather was bad, but I had a good digicam:
