Kaknas Tower, Stockholm, Sweden

Bengt Lindroos, Hans Borgström
Date Built
Mörka kroken
By anybody's standards the Kaknas Tower has to be described as functional rather than elegant.  Standing 155 metres tall or 170 metres, if you count the antenna on the top, it is a major hub for Swedish television, radio and satellite broadcasts.  For many years it was the tallest structure in the Nordic countries.  At the top is a public observation platform as well as a restaurant, and at the base there is a shop for visitors wishing to buy souvenirs. 

Visitors are provided with superb views of Stockholm's city centre and the surrounding area, including the archipelago of islands and the cruise ships sailing between them on their way to and from the Baltic Sea.
