photoblog image Skansen, Stockholm 1

Skansen, Stockholm 1

This typical Swedish cottage was seen at the above mentioned open air museum and zoo in Stockholm, Sweden. Owing to the conception that the country's many traditional customs and occupations may be lost to history, today it serves the purpose of showing the way of life in different parts of Sweden before the industrial era. Only a small fraction of the buildings are replicas; the vast majority was shipped piece by piece to the museum, where they were rebuilt to show the full range of Swedish life. Highly recommended. Autumn was just beginning to show its full range of colours, hence my effort to include some of the foliage.

this is how I remember Sweden indeed from my visit in 2006
A beautiful image Ayush. This cottage indeed does have lot of charm. Fantasic autumn colours. Well captured.
We have a museum of buildings near here and it is very interesting to see real buildings of the type that ordinary people lived in
Beautiful colours in this delightful composition! It looks like somewhere here, in Canada.
The leaf colours seem to compliment the old cottage.
Stunning colours smile
A striking Autumn image, Ayush. It reminds me of a little red schoolhouse you would see in rural America.
Lovely autumn colors
