Stockholm Arena

This arena has housed concerts with Whitney Houston, Rod Stewart, and Lady Gaga. The stadium, which seats 16,000 occupants comfortably, is not the most massive feat.

But it is the most interesting.

A far away glance shows the Ericsson Globe (as it is called in Stockholm) to be something akin to an observatory. The main difference is that the Ericsson Globe, while “old” in terms of time, has a new addition – a path laid out on the exterior of the building that allows smaller globes to glide on the outside.

Each globe, called SkyView, can hold up to 16 passengers at a time. A trip to the top of the globe is three minutes, while a round-the-globe trip is twenty minutes.
