April 4: Stadshuset evening

In the evening I went to check out Stadshuset and Riddarholmskyrkan, because they were both buildings I had admired in photos before ever visiting Stockholm.

It's nice of them to light up the underpasses so well.

I walked along the north side, and this remarkable view across to Södermalm, through the courtyard and the arcade on the other side, was one of the first indications that this was soon to become one of my all-time favorite buildings.
