Erika and I returned to Djurgården again this summer but took another walk this year, to Waldermarsudde.

With a view towards Gröna Lund:

Waldemarsudde was originally the home of Prince Eugen (1865-1947) but is now one among the most visited art museums in Sweden. The complex consists of the castle-like main building, and a Gallery building which you can see below.

The estate is set in this beautiful parkland and situated by the inlet to Stockholm harbour it has stunning views of the water. The park contains a number of sculptures by French and Swedish artists, such as Rodin, Bourdelle (the one in the photo above is 'Herakles') and Carl Milles.

The estate also includes an old linseed oil mill, dating back to the 1780s:

We had lunch at Café Ektorpet down in the Djurgården marina. What a stunning day!

Stockholm sure is beautiful like... "The city on water".

Later that day we went to one of Erika's friends for a BBQ. Superb food, lovely company, interesting conversations and the summer sun until long into the evening.
