Stockholm hopes to cash in on royal wedding of Crown Princess Victoria to Daniel Westling

You can’t blame a city for wanting to cash in on a royal wedding. On Saturday, the Stockholm Cathedral was the site of the marriage between Crown Princess Victoria and commoner Daniel Westling.

Stockholm is a beautiful city; I visited six years ago this month, and would definitely make a return visit. Now the City of Stockholm is hoping that a lot more of us will visit. So much so, they put together a LOVE Stockholm 2010 festival from Sept. 6-19, culminating with the royal wedding. Billed simply as “a two-week love celebration,” the city and other areas of Sweden brought out their best in music, dance, culture, food and design.

Stockholm isĀ  romantic. One of my favorite day trips was a boat trip to the island of Sandhamn.

Fridfull och vacker!

    About Me

    I'm a professional freelance writer and photographer who has been in the journalism 'biz since 1988. I live on a small farm on an island in Puget Sound with my husband, chickens, turkeys and our very own field of dreams. When I'm not packing and unpacking from exploring the seven continents (yup, I've done 'em all), I enjoy theater, movies, jazz, fine food, heavenly spas and long dinner parties with my family and friends. Oh, I grew up in the '60s and I sort of remember it through the haze.
