Picture from the capital

This is Sweden’s parliment building it is located on Helgeandsholmen in Stockholm, it is where our politicians rule Sweden. It was built in 1905 in Stockholm, the architect who drawn the building was Aron Johansson. In the begginging the building was a bank named Riksbanken, but in 1983 the bank moved and the parliament  moved in. In the 80s they also built one big chamber instead of two small. In the chamber our politicians democratically vote about our budget and new laws and so on. All the facts I read about on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_House,_Stockholm) The building is really beautiful, unlike now when all the buildings are rigid and boring.
