Stockholm - Cementerio del Bosque

Last weekend, in our short trip to Stockholm we had the great opportunity to visit the Wood's Cementery Complex, aslo known as Skogskyrkogarden

It's very close to the city center, you can easily reach the place by subway (using the green line, stopping in Skogskyrkogarden) The night before it was snowing so we found that beautiful place with a smooth snow coat over it...incredible! If you are planning a trip to Stockholm, you should definitely add this place as a must. Great atmosphere designed by Eric Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerenzt.
