Västerås is a small city in Västmanland, central Sweden, located on the shore of Lake Mälaren. In fact the title of this image means "City on the Mälaren". Lying some 100 km west of Stockholm, the city has a small population but is widely known to be a retailing and industrial city. Seen here is the frozen lake during January and the row of apartment blocks in the background. There are some nice restaurants in this vicinity and in summer/autumn, they make a most agreeable location for a lazy lunch.
There is also a world renowned hotel here which is basically a floating, underwater hotel and you sleep in an underwater aquarium, several meters below the waterline. At the other spectrum is the tree house hotel, set 13 metres above a park, with rope ladder access only!
