The old postoffice


I was having lunch at busy, busy Vasagatan (the same street where Stockholms centralstation is located) and looked across seeing this great building. I´ve seen it before but never really reflected on it. This is the old head office of the postal system in Sweden.
One of many glorious buildings built under king Oscar II it was finalized in 1902 and was the head office until 2003 when some idiot decided that it was worth investing billions in a really ugly building (I´ll show you which one soon).
The building is huge, covering basically a small block by itself. Sadly though it stands empty which is quite strange since it stands in a highly attractive and busy area. So a not so wild guess would be that it will be open for business soon =)
