Stockholm, part 2
Next morning when we woke up it was snowing. Real snow! To us, who come from the southern regions, even this was a kind of a welcome expression from this beautiful city, as it wanted to show us all its faces. It became a bit colder. Due to the fact we had planned to visit the Royal Palace that day the we didn't have to stay in the cold for long. The Royal palace in all its size seemed even bigger when we entered and walked through its space. It took us a while to walk through this huge, rich and breathtaking interior. Two hours passed without us even noticing it.
In addition to chambers we passed through, the Royal Palace contains three more museums, two of which we managed to see; Tre Kronor Museum and the Treasury houses. It was worth to see everything we visited, although it took considerable time and energy.
We needed to rest and get some lunch and refreshments. After lunch we went to see the finals of the junior hockey championship in the Globe Arena, the largest circular building in the world with four huge halls. Well-coordinated two junior teams - guaranteed two hours of good fun, really, it was very good, I recommend it. It was the first time I've ever seen ice hockey live and I must admit that I liked it so much more than on television. Oops, I could get used to this, Stockholm Here I come again!
