City Hall


Home > Stockholm Travel Guide > City Hall

One of Stockholm's city landmarks, the City Hall, was built in years 1911 – 1923, on a place of gristmill, which was destroyed in a great fire in 1878. The construction of red brick created the beautiful view from Gamla Stan, as it is build exactly on the edge of the canal.

The building was risen in a romantic nationalism style, for some is considered as eclectic. The dominating feature is a 106 meters high tower, topped with three golden crowns, the symbol of Sweden. The tower and the colour of bricks make the City Hall remaining medieval European constructions. 
Main halls inside the building was intend to be beautifully decorated. In the Golden Hall there is a amazing mosaic, but unfortunately the Blue Hall is blue only in the name. This hall is used as a banquet venue during Nobel Prize Award ceremony.
