Stockholm is a very modern city: fashion designers and architects turned it into a test site. Swedish style manifested in architecture, interiors, fashion, and gastronomy. The tour starts in the heart of the city, where over the last several years literally on the platforms of the station was built a modern district with several hotels and office buildings.
Further – travel on the underground tunnel system, for the main urban traffic, including the
longest urban tunnel in Europe. Stockholm globe arena, built in 1989, is the largest to date, spherical building in the world, accommodating 16,000 spectators. It is the centre of the world’s largest model of the Solar system where the building simulates the Sun, and other planets with the same aspect ratio and size relative to the Sun placed in different parts of Sweden. Wishing aboard a glass gondola ”SkyView” can ride on the spherical surface of the Globe to the highest point, which offers an unfor- gettable view of Stockholm. SkyView was inagurated in 2010. The roof construction of Ericsson Globe was reinforced with 42 tons of steel and then mounted a further 70 tonnes of rails on the arena’s facade. The specially designed glass gondolas were built by ski lift manufacturers in Östersund and there is no similar attraction anywhere in the world.
Then the route leads in a unique residential area “Hammarby Sea city” and meets the stringent environmental standards in the fields of construction, infrastructure and transport. In the early 1990-ies by the municipality of Stockholm adopted a decision on transforming the old industrial area into a modern residential area. The main condition for the design was the ecological approach to the solution of all problems of life sustenance of the population with the aim of reducing harmful effects on the environment.
