Fodor's Review

The Stockholm City Library is among the most captivating buildings in town. Designed by the famous Swedish architect Gunnar Asplund and completed in 1928, the building's cylindrical, galleried main hall gives it the appearance of a large birthday cake. The collection contains some 500,000 books.
