Stockholm, Sweden: City Hall

One night a year in December, this room becomes the intellectual center of the planet.

This is where the Nobel Prizes are handed out. You are looking at the Blue Room. In the original design, this was supposed to be an open-air room. The plans changed but the name stuck. They jam 1,300 people into this room for the banquet. Not much elbow room, I suspect.

Up the stairs is the Gold Room, a fabulously ornate room that's on the dark side even in day time. Therefore, the pictures don't do it justice. The building has a tower that you can climb for a view of this beautiful city.

For the full effect, a video is definitely in order:
