Sweden: Stockholm

On Tuesday I got a postcard from Sweden.

It shows various views of Sweden's capital Stockholm. Stockholm is also the largest city of the country and of Scandinavia. The city is located on 14 small islands. The residences of the Swedish monarch and prime minister and the seat of the country's government are located in Stockholm. The Nobel Prize ceremonies took place there annually. In 1912 hosted Stockholm the Summer Olympics and in 1956 the equestrian competitions of the Summer Olympics took place in Stockholm as well. 

With a nice stamp:
Queen Silvia (from set of two) (issued 15-01-2015)

Thank You very much Brigitte!
