The architect Ragnar Östberg, one of the founders of the National Romantic movement, completed Stockholm's city hall in 1923. The headquarters of the city council, the building is functional but ornate: its immense Blå Hallen (Blue Hall) is the venue for the annual Nobel Prize dinner, Stockholm's main social event. You must take a tour to visit City Hall. You can also take a trip to the top of the 348-foot tower, most of which can be achieved by elevator, to enjoy a breathtaking panorama of the city and Riddarfjärden.
