The capital of Sweden, probably more beautiful in the Summer but the beauty was not totally gone away in the Winter. Since Stockholm is near to the cost of the Baltic Sea it was covered with Snow in the winter of 2011/2012.

Stockholm has its own heritage and it’s filled with buildings with lovely ancient architecture and those are not only limited in the Old Town area. Stockholm is an untapped yet so modern city.

Rally Sweden

The Swedish Rally for the WRC 2012 took place between 9th to 12th February 2012 in North Varmland. We went to see the races in the woods on 11th February 2012 and it was very different to Formula racing. The track was completely covered with snow and the drivers did an amazing job to stay in the track and race.
