The Royal Opera.
Since 1935 the Royal Opera has been added to the list of buildings under protection because this building is a rare example of the late Italian Renaissance style. The Golden foyer is the most famous premise of the opera. Constructed during the reign of King Oscar II, the foyer is 28 meters long and 11 meters tall, and is decorated with gilt and paintings on the ceiling. Crystal chandeliers and mirrors only increase the dazzling splendor of this hall. The plafond painting on the grand staircase also deserves a special attention. Here are depicted poetry, singing, dancing, instrumental music and harmony that united all of them. The Royal Opera Restaurant offers its visitors not only delicious food, but also a special atmosphere. The walls of the restaurant are decorated with oak panels and the ceiling is supported with gilded columns decorated with hunting motifs. There is also a large fireplace made of Swedish marble.
If you look at Stockholm from high above, it seems that the city is swimming in water. The broadest panoramic view of the city can be seen from a 155-meter-high Kaknastorn television tower. The view from the Town Hall tower is no less beautiful. From here visitors will be able to see Riddarholmen and Gamla stan Islands that make up the oldest part of the city. The best way to admire night views of Stockholm is to visit the observation deck of Katharinahissen elevator. Also, you will be able to see the city in its full splendor if you look at it from the deck of the ferry that goes to Djurgarden.
