Daytrip to Vaxholm in Stockholm’s archipelago
One of the great attractions in Stockholm is its archipelago, a network of islands in the Baltic Sea, east from the city. An easy get-away from the city, Vaxholm is a favorite for many, accessible by bus, by car, or by ferry.
Vaxholm, called the archipelago’s “capital”, is the gateway to Roslagen from Stockholm. The town is a hub for boats travelling to the central and northern archipelago – Roslagen’s archipelago. Vaxholm’s municipality includes about 70 islands.
Vaxholm has lots of trees, beautiful homes and cottages, all within easy reach of the water. Because of its proximity to Stockholm, Vaxholm is expensive. But if you’re looking for something different in the Stockholm area, Vaxholm is an ideal daytrip.
I made the photos above on 26 June 2008 with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS kit-lens, and a circular polarizer. This post is published on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
