The Brunkebergtunnel


On a hot, really hot, unbearably hot day as today was in Stockholm (I´m not complaining, it´s just always a small chock getting the first real extreme heatwave after a pretty dull few weeks) it´s always cool to take a walk in the Brunkebergstunnel.
The tunnel, finalized in 1886, is 231 metres long and about 15-20 metres underground and transports people under the Brunkebergridge. The tunnel has one of it´s exits under some stairs that was an escapeway for a murderer back in 1986... which murder and the stairs I will show you tomorrow!

Just a funny little note regarding this tunnel is that they actually charged people going through it for quite some years. In any case it is quite a cool pathway!

That looks like something out of a science fiction movie of the 60s

Nerissa: Yes it does, does´nt it! My thoughts went directly to 2001 a space odyssey =)

Kala: It is´nt quite a murder mystery. Well, kind of a mystery of who was the murderer. But the person who got killed was very, very famous in Sweden and the event got loads of headlines in the world.

More about that later today =)
