Strandvägen, boulevard of palatial residences

Strandvägen, boulevard of palatial residences

In the early 1900s the 10 richest citizens of Stockholm lived along Strandvägen, an area that was planned to be "a street, the like of which will not be found anywhere else in Europe." Slowly that goal was met, and Strandvägen became a place to admire the stately facades along the water, just as it is now.
